What is a Lemon Law?

By definition a lemon law is not a law about fruit, but instead is about protecting the average Joe from the fraudulent sale of a motor vehicle. A lemon law provides a remedy when such a purchase has occurred, requiring that the vehicle be replaced, repaired, or that you are refunded the cost if the vehicle has been found to be defective.

If you are cruising in your new or used vehicle that you proudly snapped up from a local New York dealership, but are experiencing an over abundance of repairs or mechanical problems every time you turn around, then take a peak at the New York lemon laws. If your new car is less than two years old and/or under 18,000 miles, vital repairs could be covered under the new-car warranty. Likewise, a dealer must provide a warranty for repairs such as engine, transmission, steering, and more for a used vehicle.

The lemon laws also require that a replacement vehicle or refund must be provided for a new car if the dealer cannot repair it correctly after four tries, or if you haven’t been able to drive the vehicle for thirty days or more due to the issue. For used vehicles, a replacement or refund must be given if the repair is not corrected completely after three attempts or if you haven’t been able to drive the vehicle for fifteen days due to the uncorrected problem.
