FAQ: What is the lemon law?

Lemon laws are designed to protect consumers from financial loss if they purchase a faulty product or service that repeatedly fails to meet quality standards. Although a variety of products and services could be found to be defective, the term “lemon” usually refers to motor vehicles, including cars, motorcycles, and trucks.

Lemon laws require vehicle manufacturers to recall or repurchase vehicles that are found to be defective. The law considers the nature of the defect, the amount of time the vehicle is not available to the consumer due to the mechanical issue, and how many times the vehicle has required repairs.
