Talking I won my Lemon Law case!

Since I first got my Jeep and putting up with all of the hassle and heart ache associated with the vehicle, it honestly felt like an uphill battle to get my argument and point across to Chrysler. Finally, my persistence has paid off. I finally got the news today from my lawyer that Chrysler has agreed to take my car back and refund me every penny I've spent on acquiring the vehicle; my down payment, taxes, registration fees, and all of my monthly payments. I am not happy that I had to resort to 3rd parties to get the job done, but it became necessary and it was well worth it because now I don't have to deal with the safety issues and inconveniences associated with my vehicle.

As I've said before in other threads, it's a shame Chrysler handled this case so poorly, from getting the run around, to ignoring my concerns for safety. Had they just listened from the beginning I'd be more than happy to do business with them again, but since they dropped the ball, I'll take back my money and run.

With that said, I probably won't be around much on this forum anymore since the Jeep will soon be out of my hands. I'll be around a bit to address anyone else's questions or concerns regarding the transmission issues. I will also have some aftermarket parts available for sale including OEM all-weather rubber slush floor mats, Whispbar roof rails, Canvasback cargo liner, HID headlight kit, etc. I'll make separate posts for the items for sale once everything is finalized and the vehicle has been surrendered, which should be a couple weeks from now.

To those experiencing reoccuring problems with your transmission or anything else that affects the way the car performs and your safety, don't take "no" for an answer. Put up a fight until you reach your goal.

Sorry to hear about your Cherokee Dundas but glad you're out from under a bad one. Stay away from VW though...I came from a VW and it was interesting to say the least. If you want details PM me.

Chrysler will pay what the lawyer calls the reasonable amount which is usually somewhere between 3000-5000 dollars for the attorney's fees. Usually this will cover all of the legal fees, but if there is a remainder, I am responsible for it. Because it was all done in llitigation and didn't have to go to court, if I have to pay anything, it will be between 500-2000 bucks. May seem like a lot but you cant put a price on safety and its a far cry from the amount I put down for the car. Worth it IMO

Heh, I used to have a VW and an Audi. Honestly I thought they were great cars until they reached the 100k+ mile marker. I never had a problem with them up until then. Would I buy one, no. I plan on leasing and was actually looking at the new Audi A3 Quattro... Would love to get into a sedan again. I've also been looking at the BMW X1 since it has the cargo room I prefer. It would be my first choice, but its pricey compared to the A3
