Martin S. v. FCA US LLC

Tulare County

Our client, Martin S. resides in Tulare, California, and purchased a used 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee from Merle Stone Chevrolet in 2013.  Almost immediately after buying the vehicle, Martin’s Grand Cherokee developed a host of issues including problems with the leather on the driver’s seat and driver’s seat trim.  Later, Martin’s issues with the vehicle got much more serious when it wouldn’t start in the mornings and exhibited a loss of power when driving. We represented Martin in Tulare County Superior Court and were able to negotiate a significant settlement for him.  In the end, FCA US agreed to pay him back every dollar he spent on the car and pay him a significant penalty. Of course, our work came at no charge to him – FCA US also paid every dollar of his attorney’s fees and costs.
