Washington DC April 8, 2914; NADAonline said that a USA Today story reported that a Wisconsin lemon-law suit by an unhappy Tesla Model S owner who wants his money back could be the first test of Tesla's restrictive customer sales agreements.

The Wisconsin lawyer Vince Megna says that Tesla's policy of selling cars directly to consumers, rather than having to sell through franchised dealers makes it tougher for customers to take action if they are dissatisified with their car, Tesla is a company that doesn't have to follow state rules which really puts an owner in tough, tough situation."

Megna represents physician Robert Montgomery, who says the $94,770 Tesla Model S that he had delivered in March, 2013 and in the first five months it was out of service 66 days according to Megna, and he wants a refund. Megna says that Montgomery's three demands for a buy-back under the Wisconsin lemon law which provides recourse for car buyers if a car they bought is faulty and the maker can't or won't make good on it.
