Hello, I'm Robert Todd and I'm here to answer what is the lemon law. Well, there is a federal lemon law known as the Magnuson Moss warranty act which covers the purchases and sales of new cars and then there are what are more commonly known as the lemon laws that vary from state to state. Each state has it's own version of the lemon law. So you want to check the lemon law in the state in which you purchase the car. The lemon law derives from the 1800's when the term lemon was applied to people who had gone sour, they weren't behaving properly, they weren't talking about people properly and the like. So lemon law basically talks about a car that is not quite meeting it's expectations.
