Nissan Settles Lemon Law Lawsuit
Nissan and Infiniti of Marin Settle Lemon Law Lawsuit
The Vachon Law Firm announces the settlement of the lawsuit Kaltaktchyan, et al. v. Nissan North America, Inc., et al. (California Superior Court for the County of Marin, Case No. CIV 1005489). Although the plaintiffs (a husband and wife) reside in San Francisco, California, the lawsuit was filed in the Marin County Superior Court because defendant Infiniti of Marin does business in San Rafael, California. The plaintiffs are represented by the Vachon Law Firm.
The Complaint’s Allegations
The lawsuit’s complaint alleges that the plaintiffs’ new Infiniti FX35 suffers from a defect that causes its fuel gauge to malfunction and the vehicle to fail to start. The plaintiffs further allege that they took the vehicle to Nissan’s authorized repair facilities, including Infiniti of Marin, on numerous occasions for repair, but that the defendants were unable or unwilling to fix the problem. Accordingly, the lawsuit claims that the defendants violated the California lemon law statute by failing to promptly offer to repurchase the FX35.
The lawsuit was resolved pursuant to a settlement in which no party admitted liability or wrongdoing, in which the financial terms were agreed to be confidential, and which was mutually acceptable to all of the parties.
