Chrysler Appeals 'Lemon' Punishment

November 26, 1996|Times Staff and Wire Reports

Chrysler Corp., which is being punished for selling "lemons" in California, appealed a state decree that would ban it from selling cars and trucks in the state for 45 days. The state, which was the first to ban a car maker for selling defective vehicles, also wants to prevent Detroit-based Chrysler from selling used cars for three years. The New Motor Vehicle Board, which mediates disputes involving car makers, is expected to rule within 60 days, and Chrysler continues to sell cars in the interim. The sanctions, handed down last month by the Department of Motor Vehicles, were less than the original 60-day recommendation by Administrative Law Judge Keith Levy in May.
