The Florida lemon law also known as the Motor Vehicle Warranty Enforcement Act was established because the legislators in Florida recognized that a tremendous hardship is created for consumers when a car cannot be repaired. The Florida lemon law requires the manufacturer to repurchase or replace a car that meets a certain warranty repair history. Specifically, the Florida lemon law states that if a consumer has presented a car for the same recurring defect three or more times or the car has been in an authorized repair facility 15 or more days (this can be for different repairs and the days do not have to be consecutive), the consumer can then pursuant to the Florida lemon law statute provide written notification to the manufacturer that it has a final opportunity to repair the car.
Once the notice is received, the manufacturer then has a specified amount of time to repair the car. In keeping with the above, the Florida lemon law then states that it is presumed that a reasonable number of repair attempts have been made if during the first 24 months after the date of the original delivery of the car the same defect has been subject to repair a total of four times (this includes the final repair) and the defect continues or the car is out of service for a cumulative total of 30 days. Finally, the Florida lemon law requires that the defects used to satisfy the presumption substantially impair the use, value or safety of the car.
Is your car a Lemon under the Florida Lemon Law?
If you have a 2010 or newer model year vehicle that has had repeated repairs or has been out of service for several days, it may be a lemon under the Florida Lemon Law and you may be entitled to a cash settlement, refund or a new car. Even if your car, truck / van does not meet the lemon law requirements, you may still be entitled to a cash settlement, refund or new car under federal law. These Federal laws can apply to used cars too.
