PINEVILLE – A Hanover man is suing Chrysler over claims a dealership sold him an allegedly defective vehicle.
David Godfrey Jr. filed a lawsuit Jan. 13 in Wyoming Circuit Court against Chrysler Group, citing breach of contract and the Commonwealth of Kentucky New Motor Vehicle Warranties Act.
According to the complaint, July 19, 2013, Godfrey purchased a 2013 Ram 5500 from Berglund Chrysler Jeep, of Roanoke, Va., and Ramsey Motors Inc. of Princeton, W.Va., for $65,552.00.
