New Jersey Lemon Law – More Rights for Consumers

The New Jersey Assembly has given final approval to strengthen the
New Jersey lemon law. It’s now up to Governor Jon Corzine whether to sign the approved bill, giving greater rights to the original lemon law which was enacted 17 years ago.

Under the new act, New Jersey residents who purchased or leased a new vehicle with a defect that could not be repaired in three attempts would have lemon law protection for the first 24,000 miles, up from the current 18,000. Defects that endanger health and safety would have to be corrected in one attempt.

David J. Gorberg, the lemon law lawyer, says strengthening New Jersey’s lemon law will give consumers peace of mind and may also help the auto industry.
