How to Protect Yourself: Buying a Used Car Source: The Florida Attorney Generals Office Warranties Buying a car as is disclaims all warranties. You should not expect any legal protection if the car is a lemon. In Florida, there is no Used Car Lemon Law. If the dealer does not affirmatively disclaim all warranties in writing, you will be covered at least by implied warranties of merchantability (the product will do what it is supposed to do), fitness for a particular purpose (dealers advice that the car will be suitable for a particular use, such as hauling a trailer), and a good title. If the dealer provides its own written warranty, read the terms carefully to determine what repairs are covered, the extent of coverage (parts, labor, deductibles, exclusions) and the other terms and conditions. The dealer may try to sell you an extended service contract. You should consider the extent to which the same repairs are already covered under the dealers warranty. The value of a service contract is determined by whether its price is likely to be greater or less than the cost of repairs to the car.
