CHARLESTON -- A woman is suing Twin City Used Cars, LLC after she claims two vehicles she purchased were not dependable cars as she was told when she purchased them.
On Sept. 24, 2010, and Oct. 22, 2011, Anise N. Owens, also known as Anise N. Dean, purchased a 2000 Lincoln and a 2003 Ford Windstar from Twin City for personal use, according to a complaint filed Aug. 16 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Owens claims the defendant falsely assured her the vehicles were dependable cars with no prior history of damage and/or problems.
The defendant failed and/or omitted to inform Owens that the vehicles had a history of prior damage and/or problems and that the vehicles were not in good mechanical condition at the time of the sale, according to the suit.
Owens neither intended nor agreed to purchase vehicles that had significant problems or were otherwise damaged or defective.
Twin City Used Cars knew or should have known that Owens was relying upon them to furnish suitable automobiles to meet her needs, according to the suit.
Owens is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Cameron S. McKinney and David L. Grubb.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul Zakaib Jr.
