If your vehicle does not meet the term of protection or other specifics of the Lemon Law, it does not mean that your rights stop there. You still may be able to invoke the Lemon Law as long as you can justify that the number of repair attempts or days out of service that you encountered were unreasonable.
You may also have other rights under other state and federal laws, such as the following: the federal MagnusonMoss Warranty Act ; the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC); your service contract or extended warranty; secret warranties; implied warranties; express warranties; unfair and deceptive acts and practices (UDAP); and strict liability and negligence.
Consult an attorney, the New York Office of the Attorney General, or Center for Auto Safety to determine which remedy would be best for your situation.
