Los Angeles, California. 10/15/2019.
Los Angeles based attorneys California Consumer Attorneys, P.C. (“CCA”) announced today that it has brought several lemon-law lawsuits on behalf of California consumers against numerous major automakers, such as FCA US LLC, Hyundai Motor America, Mercedes-Benz USA, and others. The lawsuits were filed by CCA in the Superior Court of California for the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Tulare, Riverside, and others.
CCA partner Michael H. Rosenstein, Esq. commented that, “the recent round of lawsuits filed by CCA is part of our ongoing efforts to advocate for California consumers throughout the state. In each of the cases that we filed, our clients were sold a defective or unfixable vehicle and the manufacturer patently refused to do right by its customer by voluntarily repurchasing the vehicle. In each of these cases, my legal team and I will pursue justice tirelessly and, with the aid of the strong consumer protections afforded by California’s Song-Beverly Act, will obtain a superlative outcome for our clients.”
CCA’s recent lawsuits include Reynoso, et. al. v. FCA US LLC, et al., Tulare County Superior Court Case No. VCU28059, which alleges that FCA US LLC sold Ms. Reynoso and her daughter Mr. Barba a 2018 Dodge Journey that suffered serious defects and nonconformities to warranty. According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff’s vehicle suffered transmission jerking issues, problems going into gear, illuminated check engine lights and other issues. The Complaint seeks damages and civil penalties because the Dodge Journey could not be fixed after a reasonable number of repair attempts and because FCA allegedly willfully violated the Song-Beverly Act.
CCA also recently filed Karr v. Mercedes-Benz USA in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Case No.: 19STCV34312. The Karr matter concerns a used 2010 Mercedes-Benz S400 which according to court documents is alleged to have suffered a wide variety of warranty issues such as engine problems, electrical issues, suspension issues, and other vehicle malfunctions. The Karr matter seeks monetary damages against Mercedes-Benz under four separate causes of action: (1) Violation of Song-Beverly Act – Breach of Express Warranty; (2) Violation of Song-Beverly Act – Breach of Implied Warranty; (3) Violation of Song-Beverly Act Section 1793.2(b); and (4) Violation of the Song-Beverly Act Section 1793.22 – Tanner Consumer Protection Act. The matter is assigned to the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Downtown Los Angeles.
The lawyers at CCA also brought suit against Hyundai Motor America in the matter Sajovetz v. Hyundai, which was filed in Orange County Superior Court. According to CCA partner Michael H. Rosenstein, “the Sajovetz matter is a case where clearly the vehicle’s distributor Hyundai Motor America has failed its client. The Sajovetz vehicle suffered so many serious issues that undoubtedly it qualifies as a lemon and should have been taken off the road by Hyundai long ago. We are honored and pleased that Ms. Sajovetz has selected CCA as her counsel and my team will work diligently to finally achieve justice for her.”
