Plaintiff Attorney(s):   Anthony T. Ballato, Esq., of Massapequa, NY
Defendant Attorney(s):   Tracy Gulotta – Claims Manager, Rose Waldorf PLLC
Facts:   The consumer purchased a new 2021 Jeep Compass on May 17, 2021 for a total of $43,494.16. Within a week the vehicle was in and out of the shop for various problems with the front camera, carpeting and the car jerking with no resolutions. The consumer also incurred rental costs of almost $5,000.00 while the vehicle was being worked on. She tried to settle with the manufacturer, but they declined the buyback and failed to reimburse her rentals costs.
Verdict:   Consumer then retained Anthony T. Ballato in February of 2022. After serving a demand letter on the manufacturer and months of negotiations with their attorneys, Mr. Ballato negotiated a repurchase of the vehicle for full value of $38,111.50, rental reimbursement of $4,998.36 as well as $2,500.00 in legal fees from FCA USA LLC in January 2023.
