Filing and Winning Lemon Law Cases Using the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is the 1975 federal consumer lemon law that governs consumer product warranties. The Act requires manufacturers and sellers of consumer products to provide consumers with detailed information about warranty coverage. In addition, it affects both the rights of consumers and the obligations of vehicle manufacturers under written warranties.

Under the Magnuson-Moss Act, a vehicle buyer is guaranteed that certain minimum requirements of warranties must be met. Although the Act does not require a vehicle manufacturer to provide purchasers with a warranty, if a warranty is provided, the Act makes it easier for buyers to file and win lemon law cases by making a breach of warranty claim under federal law, thereby allowing consumers to recover court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees.

Lemon law cases can be brought under the Magnuson-Moss Act even if your state’s Lemon Law doesn’t cover your claim. For example, if your warranty and/or the lemon law period is expired, you can still bring a breach of warranty claim under the Magnuson Moss Act as long as the problems occurred during the vehicle’s warranty period.
