Florida authorities have accused Carvana of violating the state’s 30-day deadline for transferring titles. Channel 8 reports that one customer had to wait 253 days to receive their title after waiting more than 100 days. Florida has threatened to revoke Carvana’s dealer license in the state if the company does not respond within 21 days. A settlement against Carvana could reach $33,000 ($1,000 per count).

A deadline to transfer overdue titles was issued by the state a few months ago, but it was eventually rescinded after Carvana worked through some of its backlog. The state of Illinois has taken similar, though more severe, measures against the corporation. Carvana was again prohibited from selling vehicles in the state of California in July after the authorities found the company had violated regulations by using temporary tags issued from another state illegally and delaying the delivery of titles. Such a measure was taken after a month of dealing with a problem of a similar nature.

The majority of the negative comments are about the length of time it takes to transfer ownership and other administrative issues, but there are also a number of complaints about vehicles being damaged or misrepresented, as well as delivery delays. It seems the company has responded to some of the complaints; some customers say they have been reimbursed financially for cleaning or fixing the product. Although Carvana has made progress in addressing the title delays, the issue persists.
