Case:   Policastro v. Chrysler
Date:   September 18, 2012
Plaintiff Attorney(s):   Anthony T. Ballato, Esq., Massapequa, NY
Defendant Attorney(s):   The Rose Law Firm, PLLC
Facts:   The consumer leased a new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The consumer received a standard warranty. Four months after purchasing the Jeep, the consumer reported problems with the Vehicle, in that on five (5) different dates he brought the vehicle in for repairs and the vehicle was out of service for over sixty (60) days. Consumer states that the vehicle had chronic problems with the engine start. The consumer brought the car to the dealership to have these problems corrected five (5) 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, Esq. to negotiate a settlement or commence a Lemon Law proceeding.
Verdict:   $14,699.55 Full Refund of Lease Payments Including Attorney’s fees of $2,250.00.
