A Brief Summary on the Florida Lemon Law Statute

by Andrew Richardson allenstewart

Buying a new car is exciting, we all feel exhilarated with owning a vehicle that is technologically upgraded and has all the features we want. Most Americans use credits and loans to buy new cars as it is seen as a sign of prestige in the society.

Thus, owning a car means using up a big chunk of the credit limit and also being left with a heft loan amount which takes years to be taken care of.

Having purchased a car that needs frequent repair, therefore, can be a major problem. It may not only shatter someone’s dream of owning a vehicle but can also be economically detrimental.

In order to protect the consumers and the thus investors in the car manufacturing industry, there is lemon law, prevalent in every state of the USA, albeit with minor changes.

Here are some details on the lemon law statute in Florida.

1- It is the ultimate resolution

A lemon car is thus deemed if it makes the owner go through multiple repair attempt. Also, even if there have not been enough number of repairs, then too the length of the repair can be counted for determining whether the vehicle is a lemon.

Consulting the manufacturer will only make you go through the same issue over and over again. The manufacturer is not under any obligation of offering an alternative resolution unless you give a warning of legal actions.

A legal notice from a lemon law attorney can be the pivotal step in persuading the manufacturer in giving you a better alternative resolution.

2- You get a better alternative resolution

Once your car has been considered lemon and your case gets accepted in the court of law, then a favourable verdict means you get either a repurchase option or a refund for everything you have paid; this depends on your state lemon law.

Alternatively, you can expect a replacement of a vehicle with a similar or better value and specification.

In case of a repurchase or refund, your total amount paid for the purchase of the car, i.e., either the full amount, or the down payment with all the instalments.

Moreover, you get the value of additional things you might have paid for, namely the taxes, licensing fees, out-of-the-way repair charges, towing fees and so forth. This is added to the refund, buyback or replacement value.

3- You do not pay for the attorney fees

One of the most disliked things about taking legal actions and court proceedings is that you have to pay attorney fees. This is a partial truth as paying for the legal fees for lemon law cases only comes after winning the case.

In the payout, you get a reasonable amount for the attorney fees.


These were some details on the lemon law.
