On December 2, 2019, the Vachon Law Firm filed a lemon law lawsuit in California’s Alameda County Superior Court against Mazda Motor of America, Inc. The case is titled Fielding, et al. v. Mazda Motor of America, Inc. (Alameda County Case No. RG19045320).
Alleged Violations of California’s Lemon Law Statute
The Plaintiffs in the Fielding v. Mazda lawsuit are a Bay Area couple who purchased a 2018 Mazda CX-5. The lawsuit’s complaint alleges that Mazda CX-5 suffers from defects that cause the check-engine light to illuminate and which also results in oil leaks. They further allege that they sought repairs for these issues on six occasions, but the problems persisted.
The complaint contains two causes of action under the California’s lemon law statute. The first alleges that Mazda was obligated to promptly repurchase (or replace) the vehicle but failed to do so. The second alleges a breach of the implied warranty of merchantability. The link below includes a copy of Fielding v. Mazda Motor of America, Inc. complaint.
Note: the parties in the Fielding v. Mazda Motor of America, Inc. lawsuit entered into a mutually agreed-upon settlement agreement in which no party made any admissions regarding the merits of the lawsuit. Pursuant to the settlement, the lawsuit will be dismissed.
