I'd hope the lawyer is also looking at the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. It's federal law governing consumer product warranty. It seems a refund would be attainable.
The pertinent part:
Under a full warranty, in the case of a defect, malfunction, or failure to conform with the written warranty, the warrantor:
- can remedy the consumer product within a reasonable time and without charge;may not impose any limitation on the duration of any implied warranty on the product;
- may not exclude or limit consequential damages for a breach of any written or implied warranty on the product, unless the exclusion or limitation conspicuously appears on the face of the warranty; and
- if the product, or a component part, contains a defect or malfunction, must permit the consumer to elect either a refund or replacement without charge, after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
For a basic overview you can listen to Steve Lehto's podcasts on the subject. He is an Attorney in Michigan but a lot of the topics carry over to most other states. http://lehtoslaw.com/michigan-lemon-...boats-and-rvs/
