I'd question this answer it was sold AS-IS NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND
Florida state law;
There is no Lemon Law for used cars in Florida.
With the average price of a new car increasing every year, it is not surprising that
the fastest growing segment of the auto industry is the used car market. Buying a
car that is just a year or two old can save thousands of dollars over the price of a
new model, especially as the prices of new cars increase. The biggest advice is to
Do Your Homework. Motor vehicle laws and warranties differ for used cars. Many
reputable dealers sell used cars and will give you an honest deal. However, buyers
do not have the same protections as they do for new cars under the motor vehicle
laws of Florida.
Where to Buy
A used vehicle is a major purchase and requires comparison shopping for price and
value to find the best deal. Many sources are available for today’s purchaser:
• new car dealers
• used car dealers
• rental car companies
• leasing companies
• private individuals
New car dealers generally keep only the best cars and usually inspect them thoroughly.
Consider buying from a dealer who handles the particular brand of vehicle
that you are interested in buying. Look for a full service department and a wellstocked
supply of parts. Dealers may offer a parts and labor warranty. Be sure to
visit several automobile dealerships.
AS-IS or Warranty
Federal law requires all dealers to post a buyers guide in the window of each vehicle
they offer for sale. The buyers guide notifies the buyer that there is a warranty or
that the vehicle is being sold AS-IS with no warranty of any kind.
In the case of an AS-IS sale, once you drive the vehicle from the dealership, it belongs
to you despite any problems the vehicle may have. If the vehicle breaks down
after only a few minutes of leaving the dealership, the repairs are YOUR responsibility.
Sometimes the most important difference between vehicles is not under the hood
