Lawsuit Alleges Violations of California’s Lemon Law
On February 3, 2012, the Vachon Law Firm filed the lawsuit Miller v. EZ Auto Solutions, et al. in the Sacramento County Superior Court (Case No. 2012-00118426). The defendant “EZ Auto Solutions” is a Sacramento, California car dealership that the plaintiff alleges adoes business under the names “Paul Blanco” and “Paul Blanco’s Fresh Start Program.” The plaintiff is a Union City, California consumer.
The Lawsuit’s Allegations
Ms. Miller’s complaint alleges that EZ Auto Solutions tricked her into purchasing an accident-damaged 2008 Dodge Avenger. The complaint further alleges that EZ Auto Solutions knew that the vehicle had previously been registered as a rental car but concealed and failed to disclose this fact to Ms. Miller. According to the complaint, EZ Auto Solution’s refusal to disclose the Dodge Avenger’s accident and rental history amount to violations of California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act, intentional and negligent misrepresentation, breach of the implied warranty of merchantability, and unfair competition.
The complaint also includes lemon law allegations. Specifically, it alleges that EZ Auto Solutions breached the implied warranty of merchantability (as codified in California’s lemon law stated) because the Dodge Avenger was inoperable and unsafe to drive. In particular, the complaint asserts that the vehicle surges ahead uncontrollably and unpredictably stalls.
