CHARLESTON -- A Kanawha County couple is suing General Motors Corporation for a vehicle they claim was defective.
C&O Motors was also named as a defendant in the suit.
On Nov. 1, 2010, Melissa LeMaster and Garrett LeMaster entered into a motor vehicle purchase contract with the defendants for a 2011 Chevy Cruze, according to a complaint filed June 27 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
The LeMasters claim after purchasing the vehicle, they discovered and experienced repeated non-conformities that substantially impaired the use, value and/or safety of the vehicle.
As a result of the non-conformities, the LeMasters returned the vehicle to the defendants for repair on at least four occasions, according to the suit.
The LeMasters claim despite their efforts to allowed the defendants opportunities to repair the vehicle, the defendants failed to repair the vehicle.
The defendants' actions were a breach of implied warranty and a breach of contract with the LeMasters, according to the suit.
The LeMasters are seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. They are being represented by David L. Grubb.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul Zakaib Jr.
