Florida Lemon Law Information

The Florida Lemon Law applies when, during the first two (2) years following delivery of a new vehicle to the consumer:

  • the dealer has attempted to repair the same problem three (3) or more times, or
  • the vehicle has been out of service due to repair attempts by the dealer for a total of 15 or more days.

The defect or problem must substantially impair the use, value or safety of the vehicle. The law does not cover defects that result from accident, neglect, abuse, modification or alteration on the part of the owner.

If you meet the criteria above, you must notify the manufacturer in writing (certified mail, return receipt) & give them one last chance to repair your vehicle. They must respond within 10 days after receiving your notification, & they have 10 days from when you deliver the vehicle to remedy the problem.

Helpful Lemon Law Tips

Most states require you to notify the dealer and the manufacturer that you have a Lemon Law claim. Always use Certified Mail with Return Receipt.

If the manufacturer has an informal mediation or dispute resolution process, most states require you to do that first before pursuing litigation. However, you should contact a lawyer immediately.

Most lawyers will not charge you for an initial consultation or legal fees for Lemon Law arbitration. If they decide you have a case, normally the manufacturer is forced to pay your legal costs.
