In 1984 the Maryland General Assembly passed the Maryland Automotive Warranty Enforcement Act more commonly known as "The Lemon Law." This law provides consumers with a number of rights and remedies to aid in the enforcement of manufacturer's warranties on new cars.
Every new automobile sold by a dealership in the United States comes with a manufacturer's warranty. The warranty may be of little comfort when the car dealer or manufacturer does not satisfy the guarantees made in the warranty or when the new car must be returned for repairs again and again. That’s where the Lemon Law in Maryland comes in to protect the rights of consumers.
