Orlando, FL asked in Lemon Law for Florida

Q: Hello! In 2015 I financed a car and within the past month, I'd had tons of trouble with the car.

It is a 2015 Toyota Corolla and have taken it to the Toyota dealership about 3 times already and they told me it was a manufacturer problem and they won't do anything about it. A friend told me about the 'lemon law' and I wanted to know if it applies to my situation.

A: lemon law applies to new vehicles only purchased off the dealer lot.

If you bought the car in 2015 and the trouble just started, its unlikely that you can proceed under lemon law. Its also unclear what the problem is and why they wont fix it.
