In New Jersey, the lemon law applies to only new vehicles you've bought or leased. You may receive protection under the law if any of the following apply to your vehicle:
- The defect persists after 3 attempts to repair it.
- The vehicle has been out of service for 20 days (cumulative) during the first 2 years or 24,000 miles.
If your vehicle matches the above criteria, the manufacturer may be responsible for repairing the defects under the original warranty. To ensure you're protected, be sure to report the issues promptly.

To start the process, you'll need to submit a lemon law application to the NJ Lemon Law Unit, and a letter to the car manufacturer. The manufacturer will then have one last opportunity to do rectify the issue. See our New Jersey Lemon Law page for complete instructions.
In some cases, the manufacturer will agree to replace the vehicle or offer a refund. However, if the manufacturer declines, you'll likely need to file a civil action for your lemon in court. A NJ lemon law attorney could definitely come in handy at this point.
