Case:   O’Leary v. Subaru
Date:   September 28, 2013
Plaintiff Attorney(s):   Anthony T. Ballato, Esq., Massapequa, NY
Defendant Attorney(s):   Herzfeld & Rubin, P.C.
Facts:   The consumer purchased a new 2012 Subaru Outback. The consumer received a standard warranty. Ten days after purchasing the Subaru, the consumer reported problems with the Vehicle, in that over twelve (12) different dates she brought the vehicle in for problems with the oil consumption / defective engine / engine lights and the vehicle was out of service for over thirty (30) days. Consumer states that the vehicle had chronic problems with oil consumption / defective engine / engine lights. The consumer brought the car to the dealership to have these problems corrected twelve (12) within eight (8) 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, which resulted in a favorable settlement.
Verdict:   $4,050.00 payment to consumer, an additional Subaru Added Security Gold Plus Plan worth about $2,750 and a Goodwill Parts & Service Coupon in the amount of $500.00.
