Litigation Update: More FCA Cases Conclude!

Two of our lemon law cases against FCA—both concerning Jeep—have settled.

The first case involves a 2018 Jeep Renegade, purchased at My Jeep Chrysler Dodge, in Monterey County. Our client began experiencing acceleration issues and the vehicle would jerk while driving. After five opportunities to repair the Jeep, the dealership could not fix the problem. Our client alleged he demanded FCA, the manufacturer of Jeep, repurchase the Jeep under California’s “Lemon Law” and FCA refused. The case settled, and we were able to get all our client’s money back and his attorneys fees and costs paid.

The second case involves a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, purchased at Orange Coast Chrsyler Jeep Dodge RAM. FCA’s warranty covers its vehicle’s mechanical defects for 3 years/36,000 miles, or 5 years/60,000 miles for powertrain defects. Our client allegedly experienced a loud rattling noise coming from the dashboard and brought the vehicle to an FCA-authorized repair facility for diagnosis. Although the repair facility verified the sound, they allegedly said it was normal. Months later, the repair facility again verified the sound, but this time performed repairs on the vehicle’s exhaust. But this still did not solve the problem, and the resonating sound allegedly continued to get worse. The case has settled, and Rosner, Barry & Babbitt was able to get all our client’s money back and her attorneys fees and costs paid.
