CHARLESTON -- An Oak Hill couple is suing Mazda Motor of America after they claim a vehicle they purchased was defective.

On Sept. 9, 2009, Pamela Sydnor and Philip Sydnor purchased a new 2010 Mazda Speed 3 from the defendant for $23,945, according to a complaint filed March 4 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

The Sydnors claim after the purchase of the vehicle, they experienced repeated non-conformities that they considered to be life threatening.

After a reasonable number of attempts, the manufacturer did not conform the vehicle to its warranty, nor replace it with a comparable new vehicle that did, according to the suit.

The Sydnors are seeking revocation of acceptance and refund of the purchase price; damages for repair costs; and damages for loss of use, annoyance and inconvenience. They are being represented by Anthony M. Salvatore.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 11-C-374
