Case Type:   Lemon Law, Motor Vehicle
Case:   William T. Oliver v. Ford Motor Company, NC-885618
Venue:   Office of the Attorney General, NY
Date:   July 29, 2008
Plaintiff Attorney(s):   Anthony T. Ballato, Esq., Massapequa, NY
Defendant Attorney(s):   Dobis, Russell & Peterson, P.C., NJ
Facts:   The consumer purchased a new 2010 Ford Edge. The consumer received a standard warranty. A few months after leasing the car, the consumer reported problems with the Vehicle, in that on eight (8) different dates he brought the vehicle in for repair. Consumer states that the vehicle had chronic problems with the panoramic sunroof and Navigation / Multimedia Sync Defects, which was a material impairment of value. The consumer brought the car to the dealership to have these problems corrected eight (8) times within fifteen (15) months which exceeded the New Car Lemon Law (GBL Article 11-A) threshold of four (4) repair attempts and/or thirty (30) days out of service during the first two (2) years months/18,000 miles. The consumer’s efforts to compel return of the vehicle were denied and he therefore retained Anthony T. Ballato to negotiate a settlement or commence a Lemon Law proceeding. An arbitrator’s decision in favor of the consumer was rendered after a contested hearing.
Verdict:   $35,104.50 – Full Refund
