Central Florida Lemon Law Attorneys
What is Lemon Law?
There are a lot of cars sold every day. In January 2020 alone over 1 Million cars and trucks were sold across the US. Despite manufacturer and dealers best efforts some of those vehicles don’t meet the standards they should and have chronic defects that require multiple repairs and time in the shop. These vehicles are “Lemons” and if you happen to own one, there are protections in place to help you.
Florida Lemon Laws require the company who manufactured a Lemon to make the owner whole again. If your new car or truck is constantly in the shop, or consistently needs maintenance, then it might be a Lemon.
General Lemon Guidelines
Under Florida’s Lemon Law, more properly known as the Motor Vehicle Warranty Enforcement Act, and to qualify for protection, a vehicle must:
- Have been purchased in a new condition
- Demonstrate a significant defect that affects the operational ability of the vehicle
- Have undergone at least three repair attempts to fix the problem
- Have been in a mechanic’s shop and out of service for several days
If you believe your vehicle meets the standards above, then you should speak to one of our attorneys who handle Lemon Law cases.
What Issues Does Lemon Law Cover?
If you have an ongoing issue with your vehicle that keeps you from operating it normally, then that issue may be covered by Florida’s Lemon Law. In other words, if you get in your car and can’t use it as you planned, and that issue happens multiple times and can’t or hasn’t been repaired after several attempts, then you likely have a Lemon.
Mechanical issues lead your vehicle to be a Lemon. If the brakes engage without warning, a door doesn’t close properly, or there is something else physically wrong with the vehicle, then you might have a Lemon issue.
If your vehicle won’t operate normally due to an electrical problem then you might have a Lemon as well. If the automatic doors don’t properly lock, the wipers refuse to stay on, or if the car’s computer has a glitch that keeps it from starting or turning off correctly, then it’s possible that it will qualify for protection under Lemon Law.
Whatever the issue, if it is ongoing and cannot be corrected through regular maintenance, then you might have a Lemon. We want to help make you whole. So please reach out to our Florida Lemon Law attorneys. We can let you know if your vehicle qualifies and help you recover if so.
