On this website, I do not always get to give good news, and I am afraid that this is one of these times.
I am afraid that you cannot demand a "void" on the sale if the vehicle has already been sold. Under Florida Lemon Law Chapter 681
, only NEW vehicles are covered by certain warranties. Since this was a used vehicle, I am afraid that it is not.
As such, it is "buyer beware" because no implied warranty
is provided, and unless the dealer specifically has given you a warranty, then nothing covers the vehicle.
Now, the dealer cannot lie to you
about the car's condition. But he also does not have to volunteer information. As such, if you never asked about the frame, he does not have to tell you. If you had and they failed to tell you, this is a violation, but it is nearly impossible to prove
if the conversation was verbal.
Ergo, I am afraid that you may have limited options here if they do not take the vehicle back willingly. I am sorry.
Finally - thank you for your service.
Please note: I aim to give you genuine
information and not necessarily to tell you only what you wish to hear. Please, rate me on the quality of my information and do not punish me for my honesty. I understand that hearing things less than optimal is not easy, and I empathize.
