You are excited about your new car. You drive it a couple days, put a few miles on it—and then the check engine light comes on. Oh no! Did you get a lemon? The answer depends on whether your vehicle has a written warranty and whether the dealer can fix it when you take it back to the lot.
A lemon is a vehicle with unrepairable defects. As many as 150,000 cars in any given year come off the assembly line as lemons. That’s about one percent of all new cars manufactured each year. So, your chances of getting a lemon when you buy a vehicle are small, but still very possible.
Federal and state laws protect consumers with a vehicle that fails to meet the standard of quality in the written warranty after the dealer has tried a reasonable number of repairs or replacements.
