NEW CUMBERLAND -- A Follansbee woman says a national car manufacturer failed to repair a vehicle after repeated service dates.
Amanda Raveaux filed suit July 24 in Hancock County Circuit Court against Chrysler Group LLC.
According to the complaint, Raveaux purchased a 2013 Dodge Avenger on Oct. 29, 2012, and has experienced issues with the gas gauge, improper shifting, stalling and the car going in reverse when in park.
She first brought the vehicle to an authorized dealer for warranty repair Aug. 31 with 10,043 miles on the vehicle. She asked for repairs to the gas gauge and shifting, the suit states. On Sept. 21, she again brought the vehicle in for service on the gas gauge and a recall. A third warranty repair was attempted Oct. 4, for problems shifting and the gas gauge.
According to the complaint, the defendant has breached the West Virginia New Motor Vehicle Warranties Law and the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act in failing to repair issues related to the gas gauge and shifting problems during the three-year/36,000 mile warranty period.
Raveaux seeks to have the purchase contract for the 2013 Dodge Avenger cancelled and compensation for money or value lost, additional damages to compensate for loss of use, annoyance and inconvenience, attorney’s fees and pre- and post-judgment interest.
She is being represented by Pittsburgh attorney Christina Gill Roseman of Kimmel & Silverman PC. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Ronald E. Wilson.
