That's A Car Of A Different Color

CREATED Dec. 18, 2013

 In Wisconsin, car buyers who purchase "a lemon" have various protections under the law.  Among other things, if a dealer can't fix a defective car, a customer may be entitled to a comparable vehicle as a replacement.

In 2010, a Fond du Lac couple purchased a red 2010 Ford Escape.  The car either came with or developed transmission problems that couldn't be adequately repaired.  Ford subsequently offered a 2012 Escape as a replacement.

The couple refused (and subsequently sued) because the replacement vehicle was blue - not red.

Does color matter?

We'll di cuss the issue during the 2 p.m. hour of today's show.  Please feel free to leave your thoughts in the Comments section and then check back later to hear a replay of the segment.
