What is the Lemon Law?

In: Economics

They vary from place to place, but the basic idea is that you can’t sell a car to someone without disclosing whether it has a ton of problems. If you do the buyer can invoke the Lemon Law, take you to court if need be, and get their money back or another car. In a few states the law only applies to brand new cars, in others it applies to used ones as well. How strict it is also depends on where you are.

It’s a law that defines when a new car is a “lemon”, with so many problems that the dealer/manufacturer must buy it back and replace it rather than trying to repair it.
