You’ll find everything you need to know about Florida’s Leman Laws here in our comprehensive online Lemon Law Resource Center
The Florida state statues applying to “Lemon Laws” only covers vehicles that were purchased or long term leased as new or “demonstrators”. Dealers selling and/or leasing vehicles in Florida are required by law to give out the “Consumer Guide to the Florida Lemon Law” to each customer. Inside that guide is information on the rights of consumers, steps on how to resolve issues, a toll free number for the Lemon Law Hotline and forms consumers can utilize for informing auto manufacturers of continual defects and time spent in auto repair shops.
If you would like a copy of the “Consumer Guide to the Florida Lemon Law”, and are located in Florida, you can call the Florida Lemon Law Hotline toll free at 1-800-321-5366. Outside of Florida call 1-850-488-2221. According to the Florida Attorney General’s website, these phone lines are available between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., Eastern Time.
