A lemon law is a type of law that protects consumers from getting bad products, in this case, vehicles. In the United States, each of the states has its own form of lemon law. Each state regulates how much is to be provided as well as what standards each vehicle must be sold under. In basic terms, if the manufacturer says that the vehicle runs well and it doesn't, then they are in violation of the lemon law of that state depending on the state's specific standards. In most cases, anyone selling a bad car must replace it or refund the money for the car.

But, remember that each state is different. Each state has its own requirement for how much should be provided by the previous owner to the current owner. Also, in most cases, any defaults in the vehicle should be presented to the new owner prior to the purchase. If you find that a new car has actually been used, for example, you can have the dealership repurchase it from you or provide you with the new car.

It is important, though, that you check out your state's exact wording on the lemon law. What should you do if you think someone has violated the lemon law on your purchase?

* Contact your attorney and ask them if they feel that you may have been violated. Many will provide free counseling to provide you with an understanding if you do have a case or not.

* Make sure to keep your paperwork. It is very important for you to have any and all documentation of the car, its history and its current condition in your hand.

* The attorney will tell you about the lemon law of the state and you will decide what the next step is from there.

* You should contact your attorney prior to trying to deal with the company yourself as to avoid more problems.
