does the "lemon law" only apply to motor vehicles?

Hello shells1980-ga,

The quick answer to your question is no. The "lemon law" is based on
the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (a federal act). This act goes beyond
just cars. You can read more about it here:

"Nearly all State Lemon Law Statutes are similar to the Federal
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act which makes breach of warranty a violation
of federal law."

It is however true that all states have very specific laws for motor
vehicles, arguably so that they are tougher with cars than other
products. Consumers are protected for products as well (see the
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act for more information).

I hope this satisfactorily answers your question. Please let me know
if you require any clarification, and I will do my best to further
assist you.

All the best,
