Mossy Toyota Lawsuit Alleges Unlawful Lease Charges
The Vachon Law FIrm announces the October 12, 2011 filing of the lawsuit Massaro v. Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., et al. in the San Diego Superior Court (Case No. 37-2011-00099236). The plaintiff is a San Diego resident who is represented by the Vachon Law Firm. The defendants are Mossy Automotive Group, Inc., which does business as the popular San Diego Toyota dealers “Mossy Toyota” and Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.
Allegations Against Mossy Toyota
The plaintiff’s complaint alleges that he leased a vehicle from Mossy Automotive Group, Inc. and that Mossy Toyota used the plaintiff’s unfamiliarity with vehicle lease contracts as an opportunity to double-charge him for certain items, including the California Tire Fee and the DMV Electronic Filing Fee. The complaint seeks rescission of the lease contract and an injunction against Mossy Toyota that would prevent it from engaging in similar conduct in other lease transactions.
Allegations Against Toyota Motor Sales
The complaint further alleges that the plaintiff had to return the vehicle for repairs at least 8 times within the first 100 days. It asserts that Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. violated the California lemon law by refusing to promptly offer to repurchase the vehicle after a reasonable number of unsuccessful repair attempts.
Note: The San Diego County Superior Court has not made any determinations regarding the merits of the lawsuit’s allegations.
