13. Disputes, Arbitration & Class Action Waiver

If either you or we have a dispute, the party raising the dispute will send a written notice of the dispute to the other, along with the requested resolution. You can send your request to us at [email protected] If a dispute is not resolved within 60 days, you and we agree that any dispute or claim between you and us or relating in any way to these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that either you or we may assert claims in small claims court if the claims qualify. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow these Terms just as a court would. Claims arising out of or relating to the validity, application, scope, enforceability, or interpretation of this provision (the “Arbitration Agreement”) shall also be decided by an arbitrator.

Unless otherwise agreed, the arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitration must be conducted in accordance with AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules, which are available at http://www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 800-778-7879. The arbitration process shall include the appointment of a neutral arbitrator. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration. AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration –Consumer Arbitration Rules at http://www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. We will reimburse you for the cost of the arbitration unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or video, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.


The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s claim into a single case, and cannot preside over any class, collective, consolidated, or representative arbitration proceeding (unless we both agree to change this in writing). We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to: 1) enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights; 2) file bankruptcy; 3) enforce a security interest in the vehicle by repossession; 4) take legal action in court to enforce the arbitrator’s decision; or 5) request that a court review whether the arbitrator exceeded the authority granted by this Arbitration Agreement. You also agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

Any portion of this Arbitration Agreement that is unenforceable shall be severed, and the remaining portions shall be enforced. But if the waiver of class action rights is deemed unenforceable in connection with a claim involving class allegations, the entire Arbitration Agreement shall be unenforceable. If multiple claims or remedies are asserted in one action and one or more of those claims or remedies would not be subject to arbitration, you and we agree that the claims or remedies that would not be subject to arbitration must be stayed until all claims or remedies that are subject to arbitration have been resolved. You and we also agree that if claims or remedies are asserted against multiple parties, some of whom are not required to arbitrate, the claims or remedies subject to arbitration must be severed.

Opt-Out: You may opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement, within 60 days from the date you sign this agreement, by sending an email to [email protected] from the email associated with your reservation with “Arbitration Opt-Out” in the subject line and indicating your request to opt-out of the arbitration provision in the body of the email.

14. Governing Law

These Terms will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law.
