A reliable vehicle is not a luxury but a necessity of life. Most of us look forward to a time when we can drive ourselves anywhere we want and avoid the hectic lines and crowds that come with public transport. So, imagine buying a new car full of unrepairable defects unbeknownst to you?
We are fortunate that there are lemon laws to protect buyers against these defects, so you can take action and protect yourself. These laws are generally different in every state, but the primary goal is to help the driver against fraudulent sellers who sell defective vehicles.
Everything you should know about NY lemon for cars laws
Who is eligible for protection under the NY lemon law?
The NY lemon law covers anyone who buys a new vehicle that develops numerous issues before the distance exceeds 18,000 miles. The law states that you are eligible for a full refund or replacement for the truck, motorcycle, wheelchair, watercraft, or homes, among many more electric motors.
Generally, the product must have suffered multiple failed repairs while using the manufacturer’s repair warranty. The best way to truly understand how your car fits into the law is to contact a lemon law attorney with proficiency in the field so that they can advise with particulars regarding your case.
What conditions should the car have to fit into the lemon law?
Lemon law is suitable for both used and new cars, as long as they fit the following conditions:
- The vehicle should have a valid warranty
- It should not exceed 18,000 miles since you bought it
- The car transfer has happened within the jurisdiction of the lemon law - New York for our case
- The vehicle should only serve private needs and not commercial or public purposes

What if the dealer rejects the lemon car for excess damages?
Lemon law is typically applicable for any car that is too damaged and could not be repaired after several trials. The only problem is that there aren’t specific laws defining the condition ‘lemon,’ which leaves room for car sellers to reject the car if it has too much wear. Some people will say wear is a broken window or excess scratches, complicating the proceedings.
