There’s an old saying that says “when life gives you a lemon, make lemonade.” But if that lemon happens to be a new automobile that you just leased or purchased, you should instead exercise your rights under federal and state laws to get a refund or replacement vehicle.
In 2019, more than 17 million new cars were sold or leased in the U.S. With that many new vehicles hitting the highway, you know some of them are going to be lemons. In fact, a conservative estimate is that 1% of all new cars sold or leased are defective.
Lemon cars is a term used to describe defective motor vehicles that have repeated, unfixable problems. If your vehicle is determined to be a lemon, you should consult with a knowledgeable lemon law attorney as soon as possible.
