A: It isn't clear what legal issue you are seeking help with. It is neither fun nor cheap to replace a transmission but generally that falls 100% on the car owner unless the car is covered under a Lemon Law.

Maryland "Lemon Law" only applies to new (or newer) cars driven less than 18,000 miles and owned less than 2 years. If a new car has a lot of problems, the law requires that the manufacturer fix it. If these transmission issues are happening with a new car, you may want to contact the Consumer Protection Division for more information. https://www.marylandattorneygeneral.gov/Pages/CPD/lemon.aspx

Sometimes replacement transmissions on older cars have a warranty but that would need to be taken up with the transmission repair shop.

While not legal advice I hope this helps.
