Such as boats, cars, computers, motorcycles, refrigerators, RVs, etc. that frequently fail to meet the set standards of quality and performance. These products are commonly referred to as “lemons”. There are both state and federal lemon laws that protect the interests of consumers. The rights afforded to consumers by lemon laws may exceed ny warranties expressed in purchase contracts.
The Federal Lemon Law is also referred to as The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act in legal terms. Most of the states also have independent laws and acts that govern lemons. These laws are named differently in each state and vary considerably from state to state. More information on these state laws can be found here.
The first lemon laws were passed in 1982 in the state of California and Connecticut and were designed to protect consumers from recurring problems with their new products. Since then it has been extended to other consumer products. A “lemon” is generally regarded as a product which has defects that substantially impairs its use, value, or safety. Generally, if the product has been repaired a number of times for the same defect within the Warranty Period, the product qualifies as a Lemon.
Lemon laws establish a standard on when the product should be repurchased or replaced by the manufacturer. A lemon law contains eligibility requirements, notice requirements, and also set out specific remedies that a consumer may have in a legal action against the manufacturer if a product cannot be fixed to conform to the warranty after a reasonable number of repair attempts. It is important for you to know your rights and responsibilities under the lemon law.
