Florida lemon law refers to a specific chapter of Florida law, Chapter 681, Florida Statutes. That statute defines a “motor vehicle” as
a new vehicle, propelled by power other than muscular power, which is sold in this state to transport persons or property, and includes a recreational vehicle or a vehicle used as a demonstrator or leased vehicle if a manufacturer’s warranty was issued as a condition of sale, or the lessee is responsible for repairs, but does not include vehicles run only upon tracks, off-road vehicles, trucks over 10,000 pounds gross vehicle weight, motorcycles, mopeds, or the living facilities of recreational vehicles.
§ 681.102(14), Florida Statutes (emphasis added).
Remarkably, the phrase “which is sold in this state” is the only limitation imposed on Florida lemon law location. If you acquired your motor vehicle in the State of Florida, you are potentially eligible for Florida lemon law protection. Accordingly, Florida lemon law may cover your vehicle anywhere in the world (as long as it was sold in the State of Florida).
