But a consumer law protects drivers if their recent vehicle purchase goes wrong.

Reetu Maz posted a TikTok updating her audience on how the Lemon Law could solve issues related to troubled new vehicles.

Reetu says: “The lemon law protects consumers from defective cars.”

Reetu gives an example where her recent Tesla purchase is causing her more trouble than she should.

Her example describes how she contacted Tesla about the problems with her car, but received an invoice from the manufacturer because the car was no longer under warranty.

Reetu highlights how “the [lemon] The law gives car owners the right to a refund or a new car.”

Lemon law practices vary by state.

Auto Safety ranked New Jersey as the state with the highest quality Lemon Law Licensing Policies.

Auto Safety reports that New Jersey drivers qualify for protection under the Lemon Act after:

  • Three unsuccessful attempts to repair the defect
  • An unsuccessful attempt to repair a serious safety defect which is likely to result in death or serious injury
  • The vehicle is out of service for 20 calendar days within two years or 24,000 miles of purchase.

You can visit Auto Safety’s Lemon Law page to see where your state stands.

While Reetus TikTok mentions Tesla, electric cars are generally more reliable than vehicles with traditional internal combustion engines (ICEs) because they contain fewer parts.

Fewer parts result in less chance of a rider having mechanical problems.

A prime example of this difference is that pure electric cars have no gearbox.

Transmissions are one of the most expensive and time-consuming auto components to be repaired by auto mechanics.

Drivers looking to expand their warranty coverage on their next vehicle purchase can purchase a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) model or add extended warranty coverage for a non-CPO list.
