The New Jersey Lemon Law is a very important piece of consumer legislation. The remedies are very liberal and provide for a fair recovery. If the claimant wins a case under New Jersey Lemon Law they are entitled to a buyback of the vehicle in litigation. This starts with a payoff of the outstanding balance of the car loan, if there is a balance. Then all the payments that are made are returned to the car owner, as well as the down payment. Other valid damages include rental car bills, towing charges, repair bills, filing fees, expert fees and attorney fees. There is an offset for mileage that is charged against the consumer for use of the vehicle and it is calculated from the first repair attempt.
