What Is Lemon Law?

The term “lemon” refers to motor vehicles with defects. Such defects can be mechanical or electrical and can vary, from transmission-related issues to seat belt and suspension issues. Once an issue is reported, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will review the complaint and determine if an investigation is required. Should the investigation lead to conclusive results regarding the compliance of the vehicle with safety standards, or the existence of any safety-related issues, the NHTSA can require the manufacturer to recall the faulty vehicle or part and take action to ensure the consumer is provided with appropriate remedy.
