Arizona Lemon Laws
A "lemon" is a new automobile that has a recurring problem or defect that the dealer is unable to correct after multiple attempts. Therefore, lemon laws offer protections for consumers who may otherwise be stuck with an inoperable or problematic vehicle. Arizona lemon laws are very similar to lemon laws in other states, in which the dealer must replace or refund a consumer if they are unable to remedy a major problem with an automobile within one year.
