What is the "New York" Lemon Law?
The New York Lemon Law applies to new cars and motorcycles, both purchased and leased, which suffer a non-conformity – a defect or condition, which substantially impairs the use, value or safety – that has been addressed a substantial number of times (normally three to four) by an authorized manufacturer's dealership. This nonconformity must first occur within the first 24 months or 18,000 miles, whichever comes first.
The New York Lemon Law also applies to vehicles that are in the shop for repair thirty (30) or more calendar days within 18,000 miles or the first two years, whichever comes first.
It's important to note that even if your car falls outside of the limitations established by the NY Lemon Law, there are still Federal Breach of Warranty Laws which apply. If your car has an original or extended manufacturer's warranty and has a problem that can't be fixed after three repair attempts, chances are we can help you.
Feel free to review the New York Lemon Law Statute. The New York Lemon Law can be confusing and is open up to numerous interpretations if you don't understand how it works. If you are driving a defective vehicle and you want to find out if you are entitled to cost-free legal help, we urge you to submit a Lemon Law question online, or reach out to us for a free case evaluation.
