Mercedes Benz USA is to pay over $400,000 for the initial $6,000 dispute

Lemon Law Update: Some Manufacturers just don’t get it: they are responsible for the attorney fees if they lose their lemon law case. In Hinkley v. Mercedes-Benz USA, the original dispute of approximately $6,000 turned into a legal battle over $400,000 legal fees and the manufacturer ultimately lost in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals upheld the award of attorney fees of over $400,000. Let it be the lesson for the savvy manufacturers that if the consumer is able to show a pri-facia lemon law case, they need to settle rather quickly and avoid a potential lengthy and costly dispute, that could dent their pocket for both parties’ counsel fees.
