Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. When something like this happens, the dealer is under no legal obligation to break the lease and take the vehicle back. I say this because this is something which was out of their control and not something that they warranted or advised you would not be an issue. This is not a situation where something is work with the car and its performance and it doing what it is intended to do but has to deal with you and the seating and things of that nature. I know it is not ideal but if you want out of the car, you may have to sell it and then pay the different of what is owed, to get out of it, since they do not have to take it back or give you another car for the same price. I know this is not what you were hoping to hear but I do want to be upfront and honest with you
I am happy to answer any other questions which you may have and work with you but I am trying to share with you that the car company is not legally obligated to take the care back, as a result of health issues, which they did not cause or have anything to do with. Unless they promised or stated in the agreement that they were aware of your issues and the car would not effect them, they had no way of knowing and did nothing wrong. I am truly sorry to share this information with you and if there was a legal way to make them take the car back, I would certainly share that with you.
Has your doctor confirmed this?
In order to succeed in a lawsuit against them, you are going to have to have an expert/doctor testify that this was a direct result of the vehicle and that Honda knew or should have known that this vehicle could cause sciatic nerve pain and still manufactured the car and put it in the stream of commerce, creating a known risk of danger or harm
