Fiat to honor Lemon Law

Fiat has agreed to honor the Lemon Law rights of Floridians who purchase Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep models after the Italian automaker takes control of Chrysler, Florida’s attorney general said in a news release.

“I commend Fiat for acknowledging the importance of Lemon Law protection for consumers,” Bill McCollum said. “Fiat’s decision is a significant victory for auto owners in Florida and nationwide.”

State attorneys general had questioned whether Fiat would be required to honor Lemon Law rights for vehicles sold or leased by Chrysler prior to Fiat taking control of the company.

After negotiating with a group of state attorneys general, Fiat agreed in a proposed order in bankruptcy court to honor the Lemon Law rights consumers had under Chrysler before the buyout.

Consumers are protected under the Lemon Law for 24 months after the date of delivery of the vehicle.
