Re: Factory buy-back?

In some states the lemon law is quite extreme and if you have *any*
problem with your car that isn't solved after x number of times, the
dealer/company has to buy the car back from you, or replace it.  There
was a problem with a lot of the Blaupunkt 6-speaker systems (this isn't
meant to invite critiques of the system, guys.  Don't even start) where
the rear speakers cut out/give puffs of static when turned on/are
suceptible to interference and probably some person used the law to his
advantage and got a new car for a defective speaker.
