As the “center of all things adventurous and historical in the East Valley,” Apache Junction presents limitless opportunities to explore and enjoy desert life. The far-flung attractions of this scenic region demand reliable transportation. So, if your vehicle is sitting in the repair shop or baking in the sun on the side of the road, you are missing out. If your car, truck, motorcycle, or RV is in the shop a lot, you may have a lemon. You have rights, and you should be compensated for your inconvenience.
A lemon in the automobile manufacturing industry is a new car, truck, motorcycle, ATV, UTV, or RV that does not live up to the manufacturer’s warranty and cannot be repaired in a reasonable number of attempts. A surprising number of vehicles leave the assembly plant with defects, and because you invest a substantial sum on a new vehicle, federal and state Lemon Laws have been established to spell out the terms under which a vehicle is classified as a lemon. If your car, truck, RV or other conveyance qualifies under the law as a lemon, you are entitled to redress.
The term “lemon,” meaning a bad deal, first appeared in Britain in the early 1900s. To receive a “lemon” in those early days indicated that the person received an item of substandard quality. That definition fits well with cars and trucks that do not meet the quality standards laid out in the manufacturer’s warranty.
According to the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Arizona Motor Vehicle Warranties Act, a lemon is a vehicle with unrepairable defects that impair its safety, use, or value. When a vehicle fails to meet the standard of quality in the written warranty after the dealer has attempted a reasonable number of repairs, federal and state laws protect you as the consumer.
