Plaintiff Bill Clark purchased a 2006 Dodge Ram in Nov 2005 for 47,000 from Chrysler and found a transmission slippage error,  after a third unsuccessful repair attempt by the company Bill filed a lemon law suit.

The jury found in favor of the plaintiff on breach of implied warranty under the Song Beverly Consumer Warranty and the Magnuson-Moss Act, mandating that the Defendant Chrysler refund that Plaintiff’s money and take back the car.

The court order reveled that Chrysler never actually tested The  lemon car apart from  a few test drives. According to the Defendant’s expert, Mr. Dick Schmitt,  he never noted this issue and in fact failed to attempt to duplicate it. He never even judge the car with another car.
