1. Citation Florida Statutes §§ 681.10 through 681.118; § 520.31; § 521.003; and § 319.14. Florida Admin. Code § 2-30.001, and §§ 5J-11.002 through 5J-11.011. 2. What is the lemon law? Vehicle lemon laws vary from state to state, but they essentially cover you should you be stuck with a defective car, SUV, truck or other motor vehicle. The definition of a lemon vehicle is any vehicle that continuously fails to meet typical standards of quality and functionality. But not just motorized vehicles are covered. Hearing aids, other assistive devices, MP3 players and other electronics, and pets are covered by lemon laws. There is a federal warranty law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) that protects all U.S. citizens. Some state lemon laws may not cover used car and trucks or leased vehicles, only new cars . State laws, such as the California lemon laws, cover anything mechanical on the vehicle, and the federal law covers the same thing.
