You can write a certified letter and send it to a corporate office at Ford's U.S. Headquarters, it will move the dealer to take care of your problem.

You can certainly add any legitimate claim to a lawsuit. However, even in Small Claims Court, you will find that Ford or the dealership will be represented by an attorney. You, therefore will be at a disadvantage. You MAY be able to find an attorney to represent you on a Flat fee basis, but not... Read more »

You need to retain counsel and have the attorney send the dealer a letter. The contract you signed will need to be reviewed by a retainer, but it is unlikely that a waiver of the Lemon law will be upheld by a Court. Good luck.

Also as a practical matter how do you prove a case now that the car AND ALL OF THE...

Q: If i won a civil suit against a car dealer, can the bank that financed the car request that i pay the balance
Jonathan Rudnick
Jonathan Rudnick answered on Feb 10, 2011
