If the claim you have to seek for damages is over the state maximum for small claims court...you will need a lawyer. (most states the small claims max is either $3,000 or $5,000).
So if it's under the max...take it to small claims..you don't need a lawyer for it, just make sure to have the warrenty, any repair bills...stuff like that. (canceled check stubs, reciepts, audio recordings or emails from the dealership as well as copies of stuff you've written them back). The more evidence you have, the better off you will be.
If it's over the max in your state....then you need a lawyer.
The best thing to do is shop around and see who can do it. Remember though that the dealership will have a firm of their own in town, so the they can't take your case if they already have the dealership as a client (conflict of interest).
Some lawyers will do it for the 33 1/3, others sometimes will go pro bono....it just depends on the lawyer. Others won't do that, but some might be willing to work out a payment schedule with you so you don't have to pay 1,000 bucks up front just to hire the lawyer. (like 250 a month for 4 months or something). It's up to the lawyer though if they want to work something out with you or not.
Anyway, I hope this helps........
