Quote of the Day - I play the harmonica. The only way I can play is if I get my car going really fast, and stick it out the window. - Stephen Wright

Headlines That Don't Make Sense Until You Read The Post: Out, Out Damned Spot, But I Can Still Do 185

You spend $128,000 to buy a Maserati GrandSport, and beyond the fact that it's fast, you figure that it's probably pretty well put together.  Apparently, Christopher Cefora of Manhattan, New York disagrees.  He was a bit distressed with some defects in his car that Maserati, he claims, refused to repair.  According to Courthouse News, Mr. Cefora has problems with a. Defective Paint b. Scratch on window c. Headlight Washer detached [and] d. Any and all other defects.

Yep, you guessed it.  That refusal led to a lawsuit.  Now, Mr. Cefora wants his money back along with punitive damages.  In federal court.

I don't know about New York, but in California, he'd better keep making his car payments.  Our Lemon law probably wouldn't help him out.  Generally speaking, the defect has to relate to a safety problem.  Maybe the headlight washer would qualify.  Then again, maybe not.
