I took my car to a GM dealership to fix its AC system. They informed me that my breaks is also bad and I authorized them to fix it. But I asked for the returned of replaced break pads. After showing the pads to other mechanics, they concluded tha...
There are multiple laws to help you and you should be able to obtain your refund, if you can prove your case. One thing is to prove the "chain of custody" of the pads, which may not be easy? Small claims court will be a lot quicker than a full blown lawsuit and a lot cheaper. Good luck with it.See question
A furniture store delivered the wrong item so they took it back and we're going to order the correct item. It's been 2 months and they haven't delivered. They won't answer my calls, texts or emails. I want to sue. Can I seek punitive damages? I sa...
Sorry for your trobles. What you've described is unfortunate, especially their failure to respond to your later attempts to communicate. It is those actions (maybe combined with the Yelp! reviews) that tend to show their true colors. I like Alicia Hinton in Freson for these types of claims, under the CLRA, a consumer protection statute. Reach out to Ms. Hinton and say hello for me.

I recently purchase an use car, bmw 2008 535i from a local dealer about 6 months ago. At the time of purchase the dealer stayed no accidents on vehicle. Since than this car has been in the shop 3 times, this last time I decided to take it to a bmw...
Yes, you got swindled. This happens 100s of times every day in CA. I hear about at least 5-10x a week in my practice. You will want to gather up all of your proof including all sales documents, repair orders and estimates and show a consumer protection attorney like Mr. Hanson, for a case review. Most of us will not charge you for the review and then, you should at least know where you stand legally.See question

Sorry for your issues. You need to clear them ALL up prior to bringing any potential action.
1- Have your paperwork, ALL of it, looked at by a consumer protection attorney. Most will review at no cost.
2- Prior to or AT the time of sale, they must show you the service contract;
3- They must give you a copy of it on demand, so ask for it now in writing;
4- You can cancel it (if you want) for a pro rata refund any time before it runs out in CA;
5- If they cheated you there they may well have cheated you in other places.
Good luck with itSee question
Despite being a longtime Nordstrom shopper, I've received REPEATEDLY UNACCEPTABLE treatment there. I'm always ignored & treated rudely, while employees gladly help other customers. This is due to race & other forms of discrimination. Once I went t...
I'm sorry to hear of your issues. My wife worked at Nordstrom for over a dozen years and they were a very friendly company, consumer oriented, at the time. They do have a very extensive return policy. My recommendation for now is to simply go back and return the unwanted items. I'd also make sure that folks high up at corporate know of your treatment and maybe even Yelp! them if you're still angry? Good luck with it.See question
Hello! My boyfriend gave me a car as a gift. We recently separated and now he wants the car back. The car is registered under his name but I have very detailed text messages from him stating the car is given to me is a gift and not for 'personal u...
Sorry for your issues.
Like any legal matter, if it were to go to trial, one person would win and one would lose. No way to tell before hand how it would play out. The general rule is that once a gift is given, it's yours to do with as you choose. The "other" general rule is that if he has title, he owns it. So, you can see the two forces pulling in each direction.
Legally, he is not entitled to "self help" or to repossess it from you BUT, legally, if he has title, you are not allowed to just "keep it."
You can TRY to work it out or even set him up via additional texts, maybe coached by counsel OR
You can preemptively file a lawsuit, which may not be cheap, but, will also not be cheap for him to fight OR
You can wait until more things happen.
This is not lemon law.
I switched this to family law (which it is not) to see what those bright folks have to say.
Good luck with it.See question

Sorry for your troubles.
1- You should have copies of all documents and get them reviewed by counsel;
2- You need to WRITE to them (with counsel's input) to "inform" them that you still have not received the agreed upon amount;
3- You need to give them a time certain, (with advice of counsel) I'd say no more than 5 business days to comply, otherwise you will file a suit against them;
4- You need to send letter via certified mail, return receipt requested and keep a copy of it and the receipt;
5- You need to ONLY communicate in writing with them;
6- You should consider strongly, contacting counsel for further input.
Here are two videos for you and others who may read this post, on the importance of writings:

Hello, I purchased a brand new complete motor for my 8 year old Ford Refrigerated Box Truck a few months ago. I have had nothing but problems and breakdowns since, losing quarts of oil weekly, fuel injectors replacements monthly, numerous other re...
This IS lemon law as lemon law is WARRANTY law. The problem for you is this, "lemon law" typically is to protect consumers, ie, a winning case requires the other side to pay a consumer's attorney. In a business scenario, each side is to pay they own attorneys in virtually every case, unless the underlying contract has a "fee shifting" provision to the winning party and even then, most lemon law attorneys would want some guarantee of payment for their time/work. So, do you have claims? Most likely. Can you win? Probably. Will it be worth it to make those claims? Hard to say, as the proof is in the pudding, ie, only once you have an outcome will you know. Now, can you recoup lost income? Maybe, if you can prove it AND if they did not effectively disclaim those potential remedies. Get in touch with a lemon law attorney for a document/case review and with a bit of luck, this may go well for you, maybe. Worth a shot...See question
I know this may seem silly, but was charged an extra 10% to use CC at a nail salon. Of course, I was not notified or aware of this until after the service was completed. I know this is a small amount, but seems like a very poor business practice...
To my understanding, and I will have to re-research it to be sure, the only business allowed to charge more for a credit transaction than a cash transaction, is a gas station.See question

You'll want to send all documents (and texts) to a qualified lemon law/consumer protection attorney for a case review. Most will do this for free. Hard to imagine any Harley shop doing this. Sounds more like a fly by night guy, which would make it tough, even if you win, to collect.See question
