CHARLESTON -- A man is suing Ford Motor Company after he claims the vehicle he purchased was defective.
Thornhill Group Inc. and BB&T Corporation were also named as defendants in the suit.
On July 22, 2010, David Maynard purchased a 2011 Ford Mustang from the defendants, according to a complaint filed Nov. 30 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Maynard claims after purchasing the vehicle, he discovered and experienced repeated non-conformities that substantially impaired the use, value and/or safety of the vehicle.
Despite Maynard's efforts to allow the defendants an opportunity to repair the vehicle, the defendants failed to repair it so as to bring it into conformity with the warranties, according to the suit.
Maynard claims the defendants failed and refused to provide a comparable replacement vehicle and to reimburse him pursuant to his rights under West Virginia law.
The defendants' actions were willful, wanton and/or carried out with reckless disregard for the rights of Maynard, according to the suit.
Maynard is seeking that the contract involved be declared canceled and compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Kristina Thomas Whiteaker and David L. Grubb.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.
