Lucy Mydlach (plaintiff) bought a car manufactured by DaimlerChrysler Corporation (Daimler) (defendant). The car had a limited, three-year warranty that obligated Daimler to repair or replace defective parts during the warranty period. During the warranty period, Mydlach brought the car to multiple authorized dealers for covered repairs, but claimed that the repair attempts were unsuccessful. Mydlach sued Daimler for relief under the Magnuson-Moss Act approximately five years after the original tender of delivery of the car. The circuit court granted summary judgment in favor of Daimler, finding that Mydlach’s claim was untimely under the four-year statute of limitations. The appellate court reversed the grant of summary judgment. Daimler appealed.
