Lemon Laws that Apply in Georgia

There are three lemon laws applicable to Georgia lemon car lawsuits—

  • Magnuson-Moss Warranty – Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act – The Magnuson-Moss Warranty law is a federal law giving consumers substantial rights in dealing with manufacturers of lemon cars or vehicles. One often unrealized result of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty law was that manufacturers began to advertise and compete on the basis of their warranty. The law provides for certain minimum requirements of warranties and provides for disclosure of warranties prior to purchase.
  • Uniform Commercial Code TARR Baby – The Uniform Commercial Code or UCC has been enacted in Georgia. It is the primary source of law in all contracts dealing with sales of goods, including cars. It contains what has been acronymously called the TARR Baby.
  • Georgia Lemon Law – Georgia’s lemon car law is found in Georgia Code Section 10-1-780. The Georgia Legislature significantly amended this law in 2008. In enacting this law, the Georgia legislature found that a new motor vehicle is a major consumer purchase and that a defectively manufactured new motor vehicle is likely to create hardship for, or may cause injury to, the consumer.
