What is a lemon law?

Lemon laws, which exist in all fifty states and DC, define when a manufacturer of specified vehicles has breached its express (written) warranty. These laws specify the compensation that consumers are entitled to receive for breach of warranty. Lemon laws also authorize a consumer to receive reimbursement for legal fees and court costs after successfully prevailing in a lemon law case. Broadly, a vehicle is a lemon under these laws if a nonconformity or defect (or combination of defects) substantially impair the safety, value, or use of the vehicle. The manufacturer is entitled to a reasonable number of chances or reasonable time to fix the defects or nonconformity. When the problems are not remedied, the consumer often can obtain a full refund of the amount paid or a comparable replacement vehicle.
