Client Name: Medina Nomar
Mr. Medina purchased a new 2003 Honda Accord from Penske Honda in August 2003 for $23,725.18. At 776 miles, Mr. Medina began to experience problems with the vehicle drifting to the left and right. He also experienced a rough idle in the vehicle and a ticking noise from the engine compartment. He returned to Honda’s dealers to address these concerns. Despite repair attempts made by the dealer, Mr. Medina was forced to return to Honda’s dealers for these same concerns on sixteen different occasions. The case proceeded to trial in San Bernardino County in August 2006. Defendant, American Honda Motor Company, alleged that the vehicle did not contain any defects and that the vehicle was repaired in a reasonable time. The jury awarded Mr. Medina a full refund of the purchase price of the vehicle, $23,725.18.
