What Is A Lemon Under The Law?

The law defines a lemon as a motor vehicle that does not conform to the manufacturer`s express warranty* and that, after a reasonable number of attempts, cannot be properly repaired.

*An express warranty is generally a written promise from the manufacturer that should you experience problems in materials or workmanship within a specified period of time (e.g., 3 years or 36,000 miles from the date of purchase) the vehicle will be repaired free of charge. An extended warranty or service contract, usually purchased as an option, is not an express warranty.
