What is a Lemon Car Under New Jersey Lemon Law?

New Jersey Lemon Law covers new passenger vehicles, combination vehicles, SUVs, trucks, business vehicles, RVs, and motorcycles that are purchased, leased, or registered in New Jersey. In order to be considered a "lemon," the vehicle must meet the following requirements:

  • Does not conform to the manufacturer’s express warranty
  • Has substantial defects affecting the use, safety or value of the vehicle
  • Has manufacturer’s defects that occurred during the first two years from the original owner’s delivery date or the first 18,000 miles on the odometer (whichever period ends first)
  • Has been taken in three times for the same problem or if it has been out of service for 20 days due to a series of unrelated problems
  • Defects were not caused by an accident, vandalism, abuse, or neglect
  • Cannot have problems associated with any modifications that you made
