Q: We bought custom furniture in April 2021. It was delivered October 19,2021. Within a week we notice a squeaky noise

Repair service came out and agreed there was a problem. Supposedly they order a part. Nothing has been done as of January 17, 2022. Can we demand a refund?

Michael Zamzow answered on Jan 17, 2022

Likely depends on the purchase agreement, company policy, as well as the status of the part that was ordered. Demanding a refund and getting a refund are two different things, and being custom furniture, your question requires a much deeper than typical contract analysis to get a closer answer....

I think a lot of lemon law attorneys would consider taking this case.

To me, your life is much simpler if you SELL the vehicle now, since it is likely worth

as much or more than what you paid for it and then just buy a different one.

Either way, I hope it works out for you.

I bought a used truck from a used car dealership that offered a 30 day warranty. After 6 days I sent it back to the dealership to get the sunroof fixed. It wouldn't open. The car is now approaching the 30 day warranty mark while in the dealers possession. Since I've only had possession of... Read more »

Scott Richard Kaufman answered on Dec 15, 2021

There is a provision in the CA lemon law that provides that the number of days the vehicle is in the shop extends the warranty by that number of days. AND if the issue is not fixed, the warranty remains in place on that issue until it is.

Q: Can I return a car that has a dent and sideswipe with rust on the side of it but I did not notice when I bought it
Scott Scherr
Scott Scherr answered on Dec 3, 2021

Review your sales contract. It will determine whether you can return the car and any warranties that apply. Most used cars have at least a 30 day warranty if purchased from a dealership. Contact them immediately and insist that they fix the damage. Most used car sales contracts state that the... Read more »

There is no 72 hr cancellation privilege unless your sales contract provided one. But then there is not one for anything else either (one of the most popular misconceptions by consumers) except under the door to door solicitations rule (if a salesman sells you something at your front door without...

It should be traceable IF anybody filed a DMV SR-1 report. Otherwise, I doubt there is any way to know.

I suggest you ask the dealer to provide you with a copy of the collision damage repair statement. The car was probably sent out to an independent shop. Most dealers do not do their own...

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
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!

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...
