The Lemon Law in Florida was established to recognize and provide a resolution for motor vehicles that are defective directly from a manufacturer. Chapter 681 of Florida Lemon Law, states that out of good faith, motor vehicle companies are responsible for complaints against the motor vehicle warranty to be resolved within a designated period of time. All vehicles that can be considered “lemon vehicles” must have been purchased from a certified Florida dealer.
In the event that you might be experiencing issues with your vehicle, there must have been at least three unsuccessful attempts by the manufacturer or authorized service center to fix a warranty covered problem, these are looked upon by Florida law as the above-stated “reasonable number of attempts at repair”. If your vehicle is out of service for accumulation of days because of efforts to repair a problem you are entitled to have your vehicle presumed as a lemon.
The state of Florida’s Lemon Law policies typically cover new vehicles that have been purchased. There are a few limitations to what can constitute a “lemon vehicle” according to Florida Lemon Law legislature including; trucks that weigh more than 10 thousand pounds, motorcycles, RV’s used for housing, and a few others.
