INCLUDES CLAIMS UNDER CALIFORNIA'S LEMON LAW The defendant this time is New Cars, Inc., a popular San Diego, California auto retailer, who in late 2011 sold a used 2009 Ford Fusion to San Diego, California consumer Derek Gilbert. Mr. Gilbert, through his lemon law attorney, alleges in the lawsuit that the Ford Fusion's poor mechanical condition, as well as its history, violated the "implied warranty of merchantability." The implied warranty of merchantability is a very basic warranty imposed by California's lemon law statute that essentially guarantees that the vehicle will provide safe transportation and conforms to whatever promises the selling dealer made to the buyer. Mr. Gilbert's attorney has also alleged that New Cars, Inc. knew that the Ford Fusion had previously been registered as a rental automobile, and had also been damaged in a collision. Based on these allegations the lawsuit asserts causes of action for fraud and violation of California's consumer protection statutes. The lawsuit is titled Gilbert v. New Cars, Inc., et al (Case No. 37-2012-00097159). The Court hearing the lawsuit has not yet ruled on whether Mr. Gilbert's allegations are true, or on whether New Cars, Inc. violated the law. CONSUMER LAWYER SAYS HE IS TRYING TO CONTACT OTHER NEW CARS, INC. CUSTOMERS Attorney Vachon has announced that his San Diego, California law firm is currently in the process of attempting to identify and contact other New Cars, Inc. customers, to see if they were duped into purchasing accident- damaged cars or automobiles that had previously been used as rental cars.
