Our client, Sarah C., is a dental assistant from Bakersfield, California, whose 2011 Hyundai Sonata was deeply troubled virtually from day-one. While she purchased the vehicle hoping for years of reliability, the vehicle developed serious engine issue, electronics issues, transmission issues, and a wide variety of other problems.

Bryan’s truck suffered problems with the turbo charger, check engine lights, EGR valve issues, no starts, and a wide variety of other problems. When our attorneys stepped in, we were able to negotiate a very substantial settlement for Bryan, which included Ford paying him back much more than he paid for the truck and all of his attorney’s fees and costs.
We had the great pleasure of representing Kimberly and Carlos S. in their case against FCA US LLC, arising from their purchase of a troubled 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Being a young couple with young children, Kimberly and Carlos were terrified of their Jeep, which would oftentimes not start or stall on them when they were trying to drive the vehicle. Our attorneys served as trial counsel before a jury of 12 in Orange County, California, who returned a significant verdict for Kimberly and Carlos, which included all of their money back plus a significant civil penalty against FCA US LLC. Afterwards, the Orange county court furthermore ordered that FCA reimburse Kimberly and Carlos’s attorney’s fees and costs.
