Adventurous Drivers, Are You Sure You Want to Have a Jeep Wrangler?

Are you looking for adventure and freedom? If so, Jeep Wrangler may be the right choice for you! It offers plenty of trails and off road experiences. In other words, Jeep Wrangler can take you where other vehicles can’t.

However, be careful before selecting your next new car! There are a number of lemon car complaints about the Jeep Wrangler concerning leaks through the doors, windows, vents, and roof; vibration and noise at high speeds or while braking; and dashboard warning lights that do not turn off.

Don’t Waste Your Money on GMC Acadia!

Nobody deserves a vehicle that suffers a number of problems including surging and stalling, cooling system overheating and/or leaks, loss of power or warning lights while driving, headlights not coming on and fuses burning out, “check engine” light problems, power steering problems, passenger seat airbag problems, problems with the transmission, traction control and stability control system problems, and “ABS brake warning light” problems.

Yeah, buying a GMC Acadia is a bad idea!

Mercedes-Benz E 320 and One of the Most Famous Lemon Car Complaints!

Well, this one is perhaps one of the most interesting lemon car cases! Marco Marquez, who owns Mexican restaurants in Waukesha and Janesville, bought new Mercedes-Benz E 320 for $56,000 from a Milwaukee dealership in 2005. However, from the very beginning, he experienced major issues with the vehicle. After several repair attempts, the dealership said the problem could not be fixed. Simply put, Marquez paid around $50,000 for a car that didn’t work.

Marquez hired Megna (the “Lemon Law King”), who sent the company a refund demand in October 2005. The company failed to provide a refund within 30 days. On the 31st day, Megna filed the lawsuit on behalf of Marquez seeking double damages and attorneys’ fees.

A judge ruled in Marquez’s favor in 2007, awarding $202,000 in damages and legal fees. But an appeals court in 2008 overturned that decision and ordered additional proceedings, saying a jury should decide whether Marquez intentionally prevented the company from giving the refund on time.

Eventually, the judge ordered Mercedes-Benz to pay $482,000 in damages and legal fees, an amount roughly 10 times the price of the vehicle when new.

Once a big fan of Benz who has owned several of its cars, Marquez now says he’ll never buy a car from the company he once admired.

Be ready to buy a vehicle with suspension and brake problems, air conditioning, transmission, steering, power steering, alignment, pulling and many other problems. Yeah, it’s hard to imagine how a brand new car can have so many issues and defects, however, 2008-2013 Ford Escape does!

Fans of Chevrolet Cruze, This One is About Your Defective Vehicle!

Chevrolet Cruze is without a doubt one of the top lemon vehicles with plenty of customers asking for help. This shouldn’t surprise anyone as this model has been recalled several times during the last few years.

For example, the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze was recalled because the steering wheel detached from the steering column while driving and spilled oil. In addition, Cruze models manufactured from 2009 to 2011 were recalled because the shaft to the steering gear input separated causing loss of steering control, the transmission shift linkage was not properly installed causing the car not to be able to restart and the vehicle to roll away after the driver exits the car, etc.

Do any of these defects sound familiar to you? Then most likely you contacted an experienced lemon law attorney and said Goodbye to your Chevy Cruze, didn’t you!
