A Lemon Law for Electronics?

In the past few weeks the New Jersey Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee pushed legislation to extend the NJ automotive lemon law to also cover consumer electronics such as televisions, mp3 players and computers. Similar to the automotive laws, any electronic devices that are not repaired within three attempts will need to be replaced by the manufacturer.

The new legislation seems like a great development for New Jersey residents.
If you have purchased electronics that have turned out to be defect then you certainly have a right to a refund or a replacement. We’ll post updates on the bill as they become available.

For more information on the legislation, read the Assembly Democrats news release.
