Getting Lemon Justice – Relief Under NY Lemon Law

New York Lemon Law provides several options for a successful Lemon Law claimant. First, you may be awarded a replacement vehicle of the same year, make, and model. You may also qualify for a refund of the purchase price. The manufacturer can deduct an amount for mileage in excess of the first 12,000 miles. The deduction is calculated by taking the mileage in excess of 12,000 miles times the purchase or lease price, divided by 100,000.

A refund typically also includes all charges for dealer preparation, transportation, and installed options; sales tax; license and registration fees; and similar government charges.  Extended warranty and attorneys fees may also be reimbursed.  Frequently auto manufacturers will even refund the payments made  on the vehicle, although the Attorney General’s official position is that the refund is not mandatory.
