Lemon Law

New Jersey has a strong Lemon Law that protects buyers of both new and used cars.

New Cars

If you are having problems with a new car, you may be eligible for relief under the Lemon Law if:

  • Your vehicle is less than 2 years old and has less than 24,000 miles,
  • Has a defect that substantially impairs the use, value or safety of the vehicle, and
  • The defect remains after two attempts to repair it or the vehicle is out of service for at least 20 days.

To invoke your rights under the Lemon Law, you need to give the manufacturer one last chance to repair the vehicle by giving them written notice under the Lemon Law. The experienced attorneys at the Wolf Law Firm, LLC can provide this service free of charge in most cases. If you think you have a lemon, contact us today.

Used Cars

If you are having problems with a used car, you may be eligible for relief under the Lemon Law if you paid at least $3,000 for the vehicle, it had less than $100,000 miles on it, and was less than 7 model years old when you bought it. The Used Car Lemon Law requires dealers to provide the following warranties on eligible used cars:

  • 90 days or 3,000 miles (whichever comes first) if the vehicle has 24,000 miles or less
  • 60 days or 2,000 miles (whichever comes first) if the vehicle has between 24,000 and 60,000 miles
  • 30 days or 1,000 miles (whichever comes first) if the vehicle has between 60,000 and 100,000 miles

If your car qualifies under the Used Car Lemon Law, the dealer may be required to make repairs, subject to a $50 deductible.
