I purchased an Airstream RV in Oct 2016 which carries a 2

I purchased an Airstream RV in Oct 2016 which carries a 2 year warranty and I also bought an extended warranty for 5 more years. I've had many issues with the RV, Three with 4X taking it back (80 miles each way) for the same issues. One of them has been the main door that has never closed properly since it's purchase. The dealer has tried to adjust the door 4X and it still does not close properly. Today they said that it's normal and that adjustments are only covered for 90 days. I responded and told them that it's a manufacturers defect, and that they chose to try to adjust it by bending it. There is also another issue where the counter aluminum trim rubs against the aluminum interior wall and has scratched the aluminum wall. This one they cannot figure out. It's been at the dealer since April 14, 2016 and is still there with the counter and door issues. The total cost was $52K. Since then, I've had to replace the batteries ($540) because of a faulty solar panel option installation by the dealer. The original Manufacturers Warranty expires Oct 2017. I bought it here in CA but in a different county, How do I pursue suing under the Lemon Law and what county, also what can I claim? The $52K plus transporting it to and from, other expenses such as batteries? Thanks Alex

I purchased a used vehicle from a dealership in Maryland 3

I purchased a used vehicle from a dealership in Maryland 3 days ago. On the 2nd day, the low oil indicator appeared on the screen. I contacted the dealership, spoke with my salesman, he said bring in and we'll reset it, "we complete oil changes before the vehicle leaves the lot." So now on the 3rd day, driving to work(I was going to take the care to the dealer at noon today) the truck begins to overheat and the coolant level indicator appeared on the screen. I have called the dealership to speak with a manager, however, none were in at 9:18a. I'm awaiting a call back, but I would like to know my rights. Are they obligated to repair the vehicle at their expense?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Maryland the vehicle is a 2007 BMW X5JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Filed or reported to whom?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so

I purchased a 2008 Honda Civic hybrid car as is in Maryland

I purchased a 2008 Honda Civic hybrid car as is in Maryland with an extended warranty for 3 months or 3,000 miles. 4 days after purchase the check engine light came on. We took the car to a dealer and was told that the hy hybrid was bad and it would cost 3900 to replace. We took the car back to where we purchased it and they said they replaced the 12V battery and the hybrid needed to be reset and reprogramed to the 12 V. We leave the dealer and go again to a different Honda dealer and was told after they ran the VIN # that everything was up to date on the Car and what we were told has no bearing on the hybrid battery. It is simply bad. We go back to the dealer and tell them with a printout from two different Honda dealers that the Hybrid battery is bad. They at first said they would give us 1300 for a trade in and we would have to purchase another car. We paid 5200.00 for the car. I waited for the owner he went up to 3200 and we would have to purchase another car off his lot. Based on the close proximity of when the car was purchased and when the defect was found 4 days...either they knew it and hid the defect or they should have known. What is my recourse?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Maryland 2008 Honda Civic HybridJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Based on the close proximity from when the car was purchased and the MAJOR defect identified..I believe they should refund our money less taxes and registration. And the warranty they sold us will not cover the replacement of the hybrid battery.

I purchased a used honda civic from Majestic Honda in

Hello, I purchased a used honda civic from Majestic Honda in Lincoln,Rhode Island in November 2016. It has a trunk leak problem when it rains. The water collects between the lining of the trunk lid and the trunk lid. When I open the trunk,it pours down at the area of the hinge. I brought it to them once and they did a water test. They found no leak in the trunk but on the passenger side door which they fixed. I still have the trunk leak problem. I also found that it has been in a collision in which it was rear-ended which they did not disclose. Do I have any recourse?JA: Have you contacted the manufacturer?Customer: No, I have not. What would my purpose in doing that be?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The car is a 2013. It had one prior owner, the dealership itself. It was used for a loaner. It had approximately 19,000 miles on it when it bought it 5 months ago.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: The car was purchased in Rhode Island. I am a Massachusetts resident. The car is a 2013.
