The Lemon Law Experts Force Ford to Repurchase a 2012 Lemon Ford Explorer
This Spanish speaking California lemon law client purchased a new 2012 Ford Explorer in Los Angeles. This lemon Ford Explorer began to have steering and transmission issues within the first 3 months. This lemon law client informed the authorized Ford dealerships that his Ford Lemon was not shifting properly and that the power steering was not working. During the first visit the Ford dealership was unable to verify this lemon law client’s concerns, but did verify the problems on the second and third visits. This lemon law client informed the dealership that he did not feel safe in this car as it was primarily for driving his family around, and that he believed this Ford Explorer was a lemon. The dealership told this lemon law client that he did not have enough verified repair attempts for his vehicle to be a lemon, which is not the case.
