In the old days, buying a defective product was more or less a “tough luck” situation.
Thankfully, in 1975, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (known as lemon law) was enacted to protect citizens and ensure that manufacturers honor the warranties sold with their product. The intention is to reduce the chances that buyers are misled about the scope of the warranty.
Lemon law issues are most commonly known to automobiles – as they are generally the consumer products with the highest price tags. While this area of the law may sound relatively straightforward on the surface, every situation is complex in its own way.
