1) In most states lemon law only covers NEW vehicle purchases. 2) What color is the smoke, if it's white it's likely just a bit of moisture being burnt, if it's blue it's likely a bit of oil, if it's black it's a little bit of gas, if it's white and smells sweet it's a little bit of coolant, if it's orange I have no clue. In other words be more descriptive. Smoke after you started the car? For how long? Till it got warm? What color? Did it have a scent? Did the car struggle to run at all? Did it run rough?
