It has gotten worse since I have gotten it. I wouldn't be concerned if the dealer could diagnose the issue. I am concerned it may become an issue down the road. Do I have a case under Lemon Law.

You can begin Michigan's Lemon Law process after 3 repair attempts for the same defect/condition and/or 25 days out of service within the first year from delivery. To set yourself up correctly to get your vehicle repurchased, avoid these 5 errors:

The best way to address this is to file a Motion for Installment Payments. Research it and you will be able to find the form to fill out. The Motion costs $20. Fill out the form completely and file it with the court, along with the fee. The court will schedule a hearing and you can at least talk... Read more »

If you purchased your vehicle "as-is", you may not have a legal avenue to resolve the problems.
I suggest you file a complaint with the BBB and with the State of Michigan to see if they can provide you with some options. If you have a warranty, you should work with the seller or... Read more »
The company was not behind on payments and not out of formula on credit line, I cannot talk to our loan officer and bank attorney will not provide any info
answered on Jan 10, 2023
Not a lot of detail in this question. A lawyer will need a lot more to provide you with your best legal options. However, my suggestion would be to immediately file a complaint with the CFPB. Your bank will have to respond, and this action may allow for a resolution. To the extent you later file a... Read more »
A company called me 18 times, even though I’m on the national do not call registry, and have been since 2016 (I have proof of both, and the telemarketer recorded a voicemail every time).

Yes, you can sue them in Small Claims here in Michigan. Once you do so, (if this is a legit company), they will remove the case to the general docket.
TCPA cases are complex. You may be able to recover $1,500 per call if the conduct was willful. Demonstrating willfulness is difficult... Read more »
I was served in regards to an old debt. The debt is mine, but I'm unsure if the amount is correct as I paid part of it in the past. Most of what I've read says to deny the complaints just to make them prove its actually mine and that the amount is correct. Is this a good idea? Solosuit... Read more »

You just posted on line that "the debt is mine". Be careful now denying to the court that the debt is yours.
Depending on the amount of money the debt collector is suing you for, you should consider hiring a lawyer.
There are legal defenses available to you that you may... Read more »

For example the golf equipment, I suggest you provide the original receipts and then printouts of the same equipment... Read more »
My former apartment claimed that we did not give notice before moving out, and forwarded a $1700 debt to a collections agency, though we did give notice. Aside from the fact that we did give notice (we got the form from the management office), it says NOTHING about a charge for not giving notice in... Read more »
answered on Apr 13, 2022
I suggest you first send a certified letter, both to the apartment and to the debt collector. The letter should clearly deny the alleged debt and explain in detail why you don't owe the debt. Importantly, the letter should also request how they calculated the $1,700 and what clause in the... Read more »
Our adult son has a medical bill that was put on hold until a discount was discussed. He is self-pay. He never received a call from the person to negotiate and the bill was sent to collections.

I assume a debt collector has called you or sent you a dunning letter. If you received a letter, I suggest you dispute that letter in writing. Send a dispute letter by certified mail to the debt collector with as much detail as possible.
Keep in mind the time period before unpaid medical... Read more »

Initially, I suggest you write a letter to the seller and copy the agent. The letter should point out the defects and make a specific demand for reimbursement. After they ignore or reject your demand, you may then consider legal action. However, since you did not point out the defects during the... Read more »
