Sorry for your issues.

Lemon law is warranty law.

This seller likely did not give you a warranty, so, no lemon law claim. Sounds like you were lied to and you think you can prove this. That would be fraud. For a fraud claim, your reliance on his lies must be...

Q: I have a paid off ATV vehicle I sent it to a shop to get cosmetic upgrades. While at the shop it got flipped.

My off road vehicle was allegedly used off the business property to get pictures taken. The vehicle was taken out of the property without permission and an employee of the business rolled it and flipped it. The vehicle was initially taken with no prior damages.

Scott Richard Kaufman answered on Aug 5, 2021

Sounds like you have a question. I'll guess it is, what can you do here?

You can make a demand of the dealer to put you back where you would

have been had this not happened. Dealer will likely reject. You will then

likely have to sue dealer in small claims court. Good luck with it!

Q: I filed lemon law in Calif. Lemon Law Group Partners and received a message from Chrysler agreeing to buy the vehicl

back. I have not heard from them about the buy back but they want file suit for Chrysler contacting me in violation of cease and desist order and told me not to respond to Chrysler. Are they dragging it out to bill more fees and should go ahead and contact Chrysler myself?

Scott Richard Kaufman
Scott Richard Kaufman answered on Jul 30, 2021

So, who knows what they are thinking other than them?

It is not clear to me that THEY contact FCA for you or if you

contacted FCA on your own first and then FCA is responding

to your contact or to their's? That could make a difference.

Knowing the year/make/model of your vehicle would be helpful.

The first thing you should do is send a final repair letter. Immediately. A lawyer can do that for you. However, Michigan’s Lemon Law, like most other States, requires the consumer to provide the auto manufacturer with one...

You should speak with an attorney about this. There could be a bait-and-switch issue in your situation. The question is, what would you like to get from the dealer?

With limited exceptions, under Missouri law a party to a contract cannot simply change his or her mind. Courts are there to adjudicate contract claims when parties cannot agree and someone files a lawsuit.

The law’s view of condo governance is that the condo documents control, except where they don’t. There is no statute on BBQ on the balcony unless it violates fire code, but the condo association MIGHT be able to regulate it… if they did it correctly… which they often don’t.

Unlikely at this point. You'd need an expert to testify that the engine fialed due to what they did and for no other reason. Part of the problem is also you kept taking it back--the law would say some of that's on you, because you didn't want to have a competent mechanic look at it.... Read more »

if you purchased the vehicle with a warranty the dealership should be given the opportunity to fix the issues. If you purchased it as is but it was sold with issues that needed to be disclosed, you can sue them in small claims. Small claims is appropriate for anything under $10,000. Lawyers are...

You should seek counsel familiar with Maryland’s Lemon Law. It is tricky but I have found that once counsel gets involved, the buyer gets a response. Again there are certain procedural and timing requirements that competent counsel can assist you with.
