“What can I do if a dealership sold me a car and the engine caught fire the next day?
The dealship said the car was As-is and that it passed their inspection, so it is my problem and they are not responsible.”

Greg here are a few options for you to look into:

Florida has lemon laws to protect you for new cars. If it is a used car, and it was sold as is, you may be out of remedies unless you can show a fraud. Generally speaking as it pertains to the purchase or lease of a new car, you must give the dealership three opportunities to correct the car, and a final. If the same non-conforming condition occurs, you have a right to a refund. In such cases, if litigation is necessary, you may be able to recover your attorney fees and costs from the dealership or manufacturer.

Client Review

“I continue to be impressed and grateful for Maurice Arcadier’s depth of knowledge, methodical, measured and fair legal guidance. I’ve worked and conducted business across 15 countries, but here at home, he and his law firm feel just as much business partners as legal counsel. The perspective and consideration he offers remains more-than-valuable to me as I navigate each new business endeavor. I would wholeheartedly recommend Maurice to anyone !”
