Tallahassee, FL asked in Lemon Law for Florida

Q: Sue for truck repair?

Friend’s GMC truck had repair work done for cylinders under warranty in 2010. Truck began smoking again the next week. Repair shop went out of business within the month after repair. Warranty expired in 2011. Friend is questioning if he can sue GMC to get cylinders fixed because work was not done correctly originally. The only evidence he has is a receipt for the work done in 2010.

A: Have an attorney review the documents for you but most likely the statute of limitations prevents you from taking action now. It has been over five years sine the repairs were made.
