It is similar to the Pennsylvania Lemon Law in that it holds a manufacturer liable for itís failure to repair a defective product. Below is a brief summary of the The Magnusson Moss Warranty Act.
No Mileage Limitation: The Magnusson Moss Warranty Act does not have a mileage limitation. The Pennsylvania Lemon Law has a mileage limitation that restricts claims for problems that arose prior to 12,000 miles. Therefore any problems that occurred after the 12,000 mile restriction would not be covered under the Pennsylvania lemon law, but would be covered under the Magnusson Moss Warranty Act
