Consumers Obtain Lemon Law Judgment Against Toyota Motor Sales, USA

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2012) - Los Angeles County Superior Court enters judgment on a jury's verdict awarding consumers their money back after prevailing at a Lemon Law trial against Toyota Motor Sales, USA. For more information about this case, contact the clerk of the LA Superior Court in at 300 E. Olive, Burbank, CA 91502, case no.: EC052141.

Consumers John M. and John S. Sroka owned a 2007 Toyota Tundra that had an intermittent harsh-shifting transmission which Toyota's authorized dealerships "could not duplicate."

Attorneys Adam C. Maxwell and Benjeman Beck, of the national law firm of Krohn & Moss, Ltd., represented the consumers in what their lawyers called a "failure to diagnose" by Toyota's authorized dealerships.

"For a significant duration of the Srokas' ownership, the vehicle would shift violently at unpredictable times," said Maxwell. "Dealership personnel failed to properly address the transmission defect, because it could not be duplicated on the very short test drives performed by Toyota's dealers," Maxwell added. After giving Toyota a reasonable opportunity to repair the vehicle, the Srokas notified Toyota of their California Lemon Law claims, and stopped making payments on the vehicle.

Los Angeles County jury determined that Toyota had violated the California Lemon Law and that the Srokas were entitled to a full refund of the payments they had made. "It's an important victory for consumers whose defective vehicles are not given adequate attention," Maxwell said.
