Our Client leased a pre-owned 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL65 from Mercedes-Benz of Encino bearing VIN WDDJK7KA8DF016615. The Mercedes-Benz SL65 was leased with a warranty that covered 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever came first, and all warranty repairs and adjustments, including parts and labor, were to be made at no charge to our Client. Within the first month after the lease, our Client began experiencing defective conditions with the Mercedes-Benz SL65, including electrical problems and a misfire from multiple cylinders. Our Client took the Mercedes-Benz SL65 to an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer for repair on numerous occasions. During the first 48 months and 50,000 miles following the lease, the Vehicle was in for repairs at least 7 times for a total of more than 39 days. Despite our Client’s repeated efforts to allow Mercedes-Benz to repair the Vehicle, many defective conditions were never repaired. Our Client directly notified Mercedes-Benz, USA that he desired a buy-back of the Vehicle, but the manufacturer refused to reimburse our Client.
After retaining our attorneys at 888Lemon28, Mercedes-Benz of Encino and Mercedes-Benz, USA repurchased the defective Vehicle and our firm recovered $113,224.69 on behalf of our Client.
