Victory Against Ford Lemons
A Victory Against Ford in Calaveras County, California
Lemon Law Associates of California recently scored a historic victory against Ford Motor Company regarding a defective F-450 Truck in Calaveras County. Donlen vs Ford, which was originally filed in 2008, resulted from a defective transmission on a F-Series, F-450 truck. The client had repeatedly tried to get Ford to repair the transmission to no avail. Our client hired us to represent them and after trying to negotiate with Ford, we took the case to a jury trial.
The major contention by Ford was that the vehicle owner was using the vehicle improperly and the misuse of the vehicle was the cause of the defective transmission. We were able to prove that our client did not misuse the truck and a jury in Calaveras County agreed, awarding our client repurchase plus consequential damages. This case is significant because it is one of the first instances in which Ford has lost using the defense of misuse. We will keep you updated regarding further information.
