The Attorney General’s Lemon Law Arbitration Division administers a forum for the resolution of disputes between consumers and manufacturers that arise under Florida’s motor vehicle Lemon Law. These disputes are decided by members of the Florida New Motor Vehicle Arbitration Board, who sit in three-member panels to conduct arbitration hearings. Parties to arbitration hearings are consumers and manufacturers, who will present evidence used by the Board to determine whether the consumer’s vehicle is a “Lemon” pursuant to the provisions set out in Chapter 681, Florida Statutes. Board decisions will either award the consumer a refund or replacement vehicle, following statutory and rule guidelines, or it will dismiss the consumer’s case. Individuals with questions about the Lemon Law can call the toll-free Lemon Law Hotline.
