Cash And Keep Settlement Lemon Law
Other than a lemon law buyback, the other result of winning a lemon law case settlement can result in a “cash and keep” settlement.
In a cash and keep settlement, you continue with the contract terms of your vehicle, but the automobile manufacturer pays you compensation for the problems you had. In this situation, the manufacturer is not fully buying back the vehicle.
Often, the manufacturer such as Ford, Nissan, Toyota, Kia, Volkswagen, Acura, Audi, Hyundai, or other may also be required to pay your legal fees and costs including your attorney’s fees.
You may also be entitled to getting paid civil penalties if your case had originally been denied by the automobile manufacturer.
