Ballon v. Center Chevrolet and General Motors Corporation

The Ballons purchased what they thought was a “new” car from Center Chevrolet in San Bernardino. Although they were told that it was a new car, in actuality it had been previously sold to another consumer, and under the law had to be sold as used rather than new. In addition, the Ballons Chevrolet Silverado had oil consumption and engine knocking problems for which repairs had been unsuccessful. Based on these two claims, we obtained for the Ballons a settlement over $150,000.
