To Whom It May Concern:

I believe that my (passenger vehicle/motorcycle) is a "lemon" under the New Jersey Lemon Law (N.J.S.A. 56:12-29 to 56:12-49). I am hereby making a written demand for relief under the Lemon Law.

I (purchased/leased) a (make, model, year of vehicle and vehicle identification number) on (date) from (name of dealership) in (city, state). Since I bought the vehicle, I have had to return it to the dealership a total of (total number of times the vehicle was returned to an authorized dealer for repairs) times. My vehicle has been out of service for repairs for a total of (total number of calendar days the vehicle has been out of service being repaired) calendar days.

I am having the following problems with my vehicle at this time: (list all of the vehicle's current problems).

Since these defects substantially impair the use, value and/or safety of my vehicle, I am hereby allowing you one final opportunity to repair my vehicle under the New Jersey Lemon Law. If these repairs are not made within ten calendar days of receipt of this letter, I am entitled under the New Jersey Lemon Law to a replacement vehicle acceptable to me or a refund calculated in accordance with the Lemon Law. I look forward to hearing from you soon. You can reach me during the day at - - and in the evening at - - .
