NJ Lemon Law Vehicles

http://www.nj.gov/lps/ca/ocp/lemrepo...m_medium=email

This site lists all of the vehicles that have been returned to the Manufactures under the Lemon Law in New Jersey. If a motor vehicle was returned to the manufacturer under the provisions of the New Jersey Lemon Law or similar statute of another state or as a result of a legal action or an informal dispute settlement procedure it should be listed. The list goes back 12 model years.

Interesting how many Jeeps are listed.


Just shared for your reading pleasure !


Dan - NJ

Only includes vehicles bought - sold or returned in New Jersey ( added by edit function)

Looks like pretty good odds, compared to numbers sold. Compare Jeep to BMW, Mercedes, or Subaru. Looks like we stacked up pretty good.

Moral of Story: Don't buy a Jeep in NJ.

Oh I agree - I love my Jeep ! I didn't share it to criticize Jeep at all. I did notice that there are 33 2013 Ford Escapes on the list. Would be interesting to know what the problem is with them ?

This was just a sharing post - not a complaint at all !

What makes a car a "lemon" in NJ? I see 2 Ferrari's but no H1 Hummers.

Simple answer - dealer and then manufacturer have to be unable to, or just failed to, repair something after three attempts. After 2 attempts the vehicle owner has to notify the manufacturer in writing of the issue and give the manufacturer one opportunity to correct the problem.

No lawyer is required in NJ - for a $50.00 non refundable filing fee the NJ Dept of Community Affairs or one of their sub sections or divisions - will review the complaint and if it is a valid complaint the State represents the consumer at no additional charge.

Not a single TJ or LJ on that list!

I'm not going to knock the JK though as I bet alot of the JK's were lemon-lawed due to something stupid like soft/hard top leaks, which is common for any year Wrangler. The JK sales far exceed that of the TJ/LJ as well since it appears to a broader market and that broader market includes a lot of people not prepared for the quirks of a Wrangler.

I was surprised that Subaru isn't looking too hot on that list, especially since they are a company that constantly promotes long-term ownership/reliability in their advertisements.

Funny, I searched the vin on one of the Ferrari's & got a hit for "Straight Line Automotive Group"
Nice they're selling a "Lemon" for $140k! http://www.straightlineautomotivegro...hotos/1213324/

Isn't everything in NJ a lemon (not limiting the list to motored vehicles)?

Interesting - when I went to their web site it says they have no vehicles available. Were you able to do the vehicle check thing ? Would be interesting to know if it showed up on a car fax report.

Chrysler - Jeep uses a company in Texas, www.impartialservices.com, to do all of their negotiation and processing of returned Jeeps once a field rep makes the decision to take the Jeep back. One of the services they offer is "data cleansing" which makes me wonder if it is easy to get a branded title cleaned in Texas.

I just posted the information - thought it was interesting - comes from the NJ lemon law web site.

A friend of mine sent his sahara back as a lemon. They kept trying to get the three piece top to stop leaking.
Personally I didn't think it was a big deal but his wife just wouldn't accept a wet Jeep
