Sale of Used Motor Vehicle Goods as New
Under Florida Statute Section 817.413, Florida law prohibits the seller of motor vehicle goods from knowingly misrepresent orally, in writing, or by failure to speak that the goods are new or original when they are used, repossessed, or have been used for sales demonstration.
In a transaction for which any charges will be paid from the proceeds of a motor vehicle insurance policy, and in which the purchase price of the goods exceeds $100, the crime can be charged as a third-degree felony.
