The lemon law was created for the protection of consumers. If a product (in this case, a vehicle) repeatedly fails to meet performance and quality standards, the possibility exists for the enforcement of the lemon law.
Specifically defined, the lemon law applies to a negatively affected value, safety, or use of a vehicle as a result of a defect. If, after a reasonable number of attempts, a repair cannot successfully be executed, the vehicle must be replaced or repurchased by the manufacturer. The lemon law may not successfully be enforced against a vehicle seller or dealer because they are not specifically responsible for a vehicle’s warranty. That is a manufacturer responsibility.
