Lemon Law Legislation
Lemon legislation is governed by two key laws. At the federal level, there is the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The state of Mississippi subsequently passed the Motor Vehicle Warranty Enforcement Act.
Mississippi’s Motor Vehicle Warranty Enforcement Act
This law outlines the rights and responsibilities for both car dealers and buyers, as well as setting up principles that can be used to resolve disputes. The State Legislature laid out the goal of ensuring that consumers who made good faith complaints against a warranty would be able to receive either a refund or a replacement vehicle.
Furthermore, the Motor Vehicle Warranty Enforcement Act forbade car dealers from offering any type of contract that would remove the implied warranty.
In legal terms, the implied warranty is something that exists with the purchase and sale of any product, and it means that even if there’s not an official warranty, the product must be able to do what a reasonable person would expect it to do.
