New York Lemon Law

 

New York Lemon Law

The New York Lemon Law (General Business Law 198-a) provides a legal remedy for consumers who are buyers or lessees of new cars and certain used cars that turn out to be lemons. If the car does not conform to the terms of the written warranty and the manufacturer or its authorized dealer is unable to repair the car after a reasonable number of attempts during the first 18,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first, the consumer can choose a full refund or a comparable replacement car.

What does the New York Law cover?

The New York law covers both new and used cars, including "demos," which satisfy the following four conditions:

  1. The car was covered by the manufacturer's new car warranty at the time of original delivery; and
  2. The car was purchased, leased or transferred within the earlier of the first 18,000 miles or two years from the date of original delivery; and
  3. The car either: (a) was purchased, leased or transferred in New York, or (b) is presently registered in New York; and
  4. The car is primarily used for personal purposes. Some examples of cars that are covered by the new car lemon law are:
  • a new car purchased or leased from a New Jersey dealer and registered in New York;
  • a year-old, demonstrator car with less than 18,000 miles purchased from a New York dealer and registered in New Jersey;
  • a used car with less than 18,000 miles and less than 2-years old, purchased from a Connecticut dealer and registered in New York;
  • a used car with less than 18,000 miles and less than 2-years old, received as a gift from a friend and registered in New York
