Lemon Law

" lemon " laws are American state laws that provide a remedy for purchasers of cars to be able to compensate for cars that repeatedly fail to meet requirements of quality and performance. These vehicles are called lemons. The federal lemon law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) protects citizens of states. State lemon laws vary by state and might not necessarily cover used or leased cars. The rights given to consumers by lemon laws may exceed the guarantees expressed in purchase contracts. Lemon law is the typical nickname for these laws, but each state has different names for that laws and acts.

Federal lemon laws cover anything mechanised. The federal lemon law also provides that the warranter might be obligated to pay the prevailing party's attorney in an effective lemon law suit, as do most state lemon laws and regulations.

At the core of most lemon laws is the actual manufacturer's breach of warranty. A manufacturer's warranty is why is the manufacturer legally responsible for repairs to the customer's vehicle or good. It is a form of assure. An express warranty is typically a written warranty. A good implied warranty unlike an express warranty, is not created. The law imposes these obligations on the manufacturer, the vendor or both as a matter of public policy. These change from state to state.

Lemon laws may cover situations even if the vehicle is not under warranty, especially if the vendor failed to disclose critical information such as previous harm to the buyer. Knowingly purchasing a car in "as is" condition doesn't void the buyer's rights under applicable lemon laws. [citation needed] Lemon laws aren't limited to cars. There are RV, boat, motorcycle, as well as wheelchair lemon laws.
