Re: Walker Bay-Beware
In my jurisdiction, we have a Small Claims Court where you can claim up to $25000. I have used it twice and was both times successful. If you have this option it is a good lever to use. The manufacturer will have to hire a lawyer to litigate while you can represent yourself on the cheap. They also do not like bad publicity.
As leverage, it can be very effective. I had a warranty beef with Honda and they just blew me off. A registered letter to the dealership with the suggestion I might go to Small Claims quickly solved the problem to my satisfaction.
Consumers, you don't ask, you don't get.
