MOUNDSVILLE – An Ohio man is suing over claims a 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup he purchased is a lemon.
Justin Lagowski of Bellaire County, Ohio, filed a lawsuit in Marshall Circuit Court against FCA, formerly known as Chrysler Group, and Glen Dale Motor Co.
According to the complaint, Lagowski purchased the truck from Glen Dale Motor Co. on May 6, 2014, and has on numerous times returned it to the dealer because a malfunction indicator light came on. After the dealer made various repairs, the light came back on and remained on, prompting fear that something un-diagnosed will damage the engine, the suit states. Several attempts to have the dealer respond to this latest condition have failed, according to the plaintiff.
Lagowski seeks return of the $43,006.70 he paid for the truck, along with attorney fees and other compensation. He is represented by attorney Frank X. Duff of Schrader Byrd & Companion in Wheeling. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Mark A. Karl.
