Davenport, FL asked in Lemon Law for Florida

Q: Am i still responsible and out any way i can get out of car? Or is it now chrysler to fix

Bought a car 8 months ago from drivetime. Also purvhased the warranty they offered. 09 aspen. A few weeks ago the engine is having trouble. Apparently failed compression test. So the engine had to be replaced as well as the radiator. Averex the warranty covered it besides 400 that i had to pay. 3 weeks later today i received car. First off there is a odor and thrn 3 hours after getting vehicle it makes loud clicking sound and steering is making noise. Call the guy. He says he doesnt know. I put a couple quarts of oil in it becsuse it showed none on dipstick. Made home but sluggish. I have a feeling its a major problem as the engine light flashed. When it did, i immediately stop vehicle. Antifreeze seems to disappear. So im asking two things, one is there a consumer law where i can return car to drivetime or get some kind of protection? 2 is chrysler now responsible for engine issues?? I feel completely screwed. I had an infant and toddler both times. I live in fla

A: My guess is that your rights are governed by the warranty. You may also have a claim against the company that replaced the engine. The engine may have been replaced with a used engine that failed or there may have been negligence in the repair process.
