2018 Car Complaint Index

Thanks to consumer advocate Jack Gillis, author of the 2014 Car Book, and the efforts of the Center for Auto Safety, we are able to provide you with the Top 20 vehicle complaints on file with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Each year, thousands of Americans call their government to register complaints about their vehicles. The complaint index is based on a ratio of the number of complaints for each vehicle to the sales of that vehicle. The numbers represent relative index scores, not the number of complaints received. The complaint index score considers sales volume and years on the road. Lower index numbers are better. The Car Book is available for sale through The Center For Auto Safety if you are interested in purchasing a copy.

I work on a contingency fee basis. This means you do not have to pay for any of my legal services until I have helped secure a favorable result on your behalf. Because I am trained, licensed, and experienced in practicing in various levels of court, I am more than equipped to come to trial on your behalf.

Though I am more than confident in my abilities to help you recover your losses, if I am unable to obtain a verdict or settlement in your favor, you will owe me nothing for the time, effort, or resources that I committed to representing your case.

I am fully invested in advocating for the best interests of my clients, especially after you have suffered any type of financial or investment loss. My contingency fee basis policy combined with my free case consultations are just some of the various ways that I demonstrate my total, unwavering, and steadfast commitment to client success.

Representing Vehicle Owners in California, Texas & Louisiana

The compensation and recoveries available for any of these types of Lemon Law cases can range depending on the circumstances surrounding your claim, including the laws in your state. To find out the potential value of your case, contact my firm today to speak with a qualified professional.
