Tesla fingers owner in lemon-law counterattack, according to USA Today.
Only a couple days after offering a polite no comment, Tesla is fighting back against a lemon-law lawsuit that could complicate the spread of its direct-selling formula in more states.
It says the accusation in a lawsuit by a lemon-law lawyer in Milwaukee are untrue and points a figure at a the owner of the car, a retired physician, hinting that he may have tampered with the vehicle. They also say he was involved in a previous lemon-law case involving a Volvo.
The lawsuit was filed by a Wisconsin lawyer who specializes in taking automakers to court over bad cars using states’ laws aimed at protecting customers from cars bought in the continual repairs involving the same issue, called “lemons.” Attorney Vince Megna says Tesla’s sales agreement is one of the strangest he’s ever encountered because he says it appears that it is aimed at making it hard to press lemon suits.
