Fight Back By Using The Lemon Laws

May 25, 2008
Do you have a car, truck, SUV, boat, computer, or any other consumer product that has had to be repaired multiple times? If you do, you might just have yourself a "lemon". Even if you bought a used car from a dealer, it shouldn't have to be repeatedly repaired and the lemon laws are there to protect you.

Lemon laws were started with just automobiles in mind and then expanded to include all sorts of other electronic consumer products. If you have had trouble with your purchase on multiple occasions, don't let your mechanic or manufacturer try to talk you out of what may be your legal rights. The lemon laws are there to protect you when you need them and all you have to do is understand them. You do have recourse even though you might think that you don't.

These laws give consumers the right to a refund or a replacement if their item cannot be satisfactorily repaired under warranty. In order to qualify for protection under a lemon law, you must have a defective consumer product that has not been able to be fixed within a reasonable amount of repair attempts. The defect cannot be a minor one that does not affect the performance of the product. It must be a major defect that prevents the item from working properly.

Each state has it's own lemon law but they are all similar in that they provide for a refund or replacement should the manufacturer be at fault. The manufacturer is generally allowed several tries to repair the problem and if the problem cannot be fixed, they will then be required to give the buyer a refund or replacement.

Lemon laws are slightly different in all fifty states so it's important to learn the laws in your state. This way you will find out what your rights are and what kind of retribution you are entitled to. If you stand up for your rights you will not only be protecting your purchase but you will also be helping out other customers who might have bought lemons from the same dealer. The lemon laws are there to protect you and to discourage the dealers from selling things that don't work. Businesses who sell lemons to consumers need to be punished, and the lemon laws are there so that they will stop doing business in that fashion. The lemon laws are there to protect you, so use them!
