New Vehicle Lemon Law

If your new car needs repeated repairs or it has been out of service for several days, it may be a lemon and you may be entitled to a cash settlement, a refund or a new car.

While every state has its own new car lemon laws, all consumers can be protected by the federal laws.

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act was enacted by Congress in response to the widespread misuse by merchants of express warranties and disclaimers. The purpose of the Act is to make warranties on consumer products more readily understood and enforceable, and to provide a better means to protect consumers when purchasing a warranted product.

Consumer products are not required to have warranties, but if one is given, it must comply with the Magnuson-Moss Act.  All new vehicles are provided a warranty by the manufacturer.  Therefore, your new car is protected!
