Paul W. v. FCA US LLC

Sacramento County

Our client, Paul W., resides in Roseville, California and runs his own landscaping business. He purchased a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 from Folsom Lake Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for over $35,000 to use as part of his landscaping business. Unfortunately, Paul’s truck developed a series of very serious engine and transmission issues early on that Dodge simply could not fix. Paul took in the vehicle numerous times to Folsom Lake CDJR for service and they were never able to get things working right on his truck. Altogether, his car spent dozens of days in the shop and was presented for repair numerous times. FCA US refused to resolve his matter amicably and ultimately faced a jury of 12 in Sacramento County Superior Court. Our attorneys were able to deliver an excellent result for Paul when the jury returned and awarded him over three times what he paid for the truck. Later, the Sacramento Superior Court also ordered that Chrysler also pay all of our attorney’s fees and costs on Paul’s behalf.

However, after that point, the vehicle developed serious and troubling engine issues, including rough idles, strange engine noises, engine stalling, and other problems. In spite of several presentations to Jeep Chrysler Dodge of Ontario and other authorized dealerships, FCA was unable to fix our client Joseph’s vehicle.

Douglas and Georgia S. v. FCA US LLC

San Luis Obispo County

Our clients Douglas and Georgia S. are a lovely elderly couple from Cambria, California that we represented with respect to their purchase of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee.  They purchased the vehicle hoping for years of peaceful and reliable enjoyment. They also looked forward to driving the Cherokee cross-country to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.  Unfortunately, prior to and during that trip, the vehicle presented with serious transmission and engine issues that the dealership was unable to fix. Douglas and Georgia became so frightened that they cut their trip short and returned straight home to the dealership.  They tried to resolve the vehicle’s problems, first, with their local dealership; but they were unable to fix the vehicle. Next, they attempted to resolve things directly with Chrysler, and Chrysler refused to do right by them. After our attorneys stepped in, we were able to obtain an excellent resolution of the case for them, including payment of all of their attorney’s fees and costs and a payment of nearly four-times what they paid for the vehicle.
