New Car Lemon Law

In order to qualify for relief under the Lemon Law, the vehicle must be less than two years old and have fewer than 24,000 miles. The defect must substantially impair the use, value or safety of the vehicle or be a serious safety defect which is likely to cause death or serious bodily injury if the vehicle is driven. As of January 19, 2010 the law also covers authorized emergency vehicles, and was further amended on January 19, 2016 to include farm tractors.   You must first meet certain conditions and requirements before filing a Lemon Law application. Details are contained in New Jersey Lemon Law Guidebook or Consumer Brief: New Car Lemon Law - Your Road to Relief.
