Volvo Seatbelt Recall


If you happen to own or lease a 2017 Volvo XC90 SUV, there's been an auto recall related to its third-row seat belts.

Although there haven't been any accidents or injuries reported yet--and the seatbelt will reportedly still function in the event of an accident-- the defect could cause a piece inside the seatbelt retractor to enter the cabin as a speeding projectile.

Auto Recall Ahead: When a Mercedes Smokes Like a Dragster


Q: Why are the wheels of my Mercedes Benz smoking?

Lemon law attorneys are in business to help consumers who have bought or leased new vehicles that turn out to have persistent unresolvable defects within the first year or two, depending on regulations of the state you live in.

Generally, the car may be considered a "lemon" if it's been subject to an unreasonable number of repairs of a problem that substantially impairs the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. In Pennsylvania, the problems must be experienced with in the first year or 12,000 miles, but in New Jersey it's within the first two years or 24,000 miles. But even if you experience problems beyond the statutory time limit or mileage limit of your state, you still may be able to take legal action under consumer protection laws.

In the event your car is found to be a “lemon” under your state’s lemon law, the remedies you may be entitled to include a full refund of your down payment, trade-in, monthly payments and taxes, or a brand-new car.

Volkswagen: Beyond the Stench of the Emissions-Cheating Scandal


Q: What is the status of the environmental claims against Volkswagen?

Richard Branson got it right when he said, "Your brand name is only as good as your reputation.”

It can take decades to build a reputation and only moments to destroy it. So when German automaker Volkswagen was exposed for "its decade-long scheme to cheat on diesel emissions tests", its reputation went in the tank. And there it has largely stayed since 2015 when the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) made its first accusations against the automaker.

In a nutshell, as we've reported previously on this blog that the automaker was the subject of Read more . . .

Some say that freezing lemons might be beneficial to your health.
