Used Car Purchases
If it is sold "As-Is", it means any repair work required is the sole responsibility of the buyer. If it is sold "As-Is", the seller has no obligation to assist in any repairs. In the case of an "AS-IS" sale, once you drive the vehicle from the dealership, it belongs to you, despite any problems the vehicle may have. If the vehicle breaks down after only a few minutes of leaving the dealership, the repairs are YOUR responsibility. When you buy a used car from a dealer, get the original-or a copy-of the Buyers Guide, that was posted in the window of the vehicle. The guide must reflect any negotiated changes, in warranty coverage. It also becomes part of your sales contract, and overrides any contrary provisions. For example, if the Buyers Guide says the car comes with a warranty, and the contract says the car is sold "as-is", the dealer must give you the warranty described in the guide. All dealers are required by Federal Law to post a "buyers guide" in the window of each vehicle for sale. If the product you are considering purchasing is a vehicle, take it to a trusted mechanic and have it checked out for problems before you sign anything. In addition to checking out the product, it is always recommended that you check out the company selling the product. THERE IS NO LEMON LAW FOR USED CARS IN FLORIDA.
