Lemon law is about holding the seller up to the responsibility under its expressed warranty coverage. If a defect is known to exist prior to the sale, and the buyer is not informed of such defect, it may not be under the lemon law, but a good lemon attorney should know what law may cover the situation.

I would consult an attorney ASAP, consulting an attorney does not mean not giving the dealer a chance. In fact after talking to an attorney, he/she might tell you how to give the dealer the necessary opportunities to remedy the issue. But you need to do it the right way for your own protection, in case legal representation is needed later, if not now.
