Some states have a provision in their lemon law for civil penalties.

In the broadest sense, a civil penalty is a monetary amount that is imposed against the automobile manufacturer and awarded to the consumer for the manufacturer’s “willful” refusal to repurchase a vehicle when demanded to do so without having a valid reason. In California, for example, the civil penalty can be up to 2 times the price of the vehicle. 

An experienced lemon law lawyer in your state can advise you if civil penalties are applicable to your states lemon law, and what the specifics are regarding same.
