MOUNDSVILLE – A Cameron man is suing Chrysler over claims a dealership sold him a defective vehicle.

Robert Morgan filed suit Dec. 29 in Marshall Circuit Court against Chrysler Group, citing breach of contract warranty.

According to the complaint, on Oct. 1, 2013, Morgan purchased a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee from Rick Hendrick Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Charleston, S.C., for $61,347.40. Chrysler breached the contract and the West Virginia New Motor Vehicle Warranty Act, the suit states, by selling Morgan a vehicle with defective dash lights, speedometer, air condition, seat controls and a front radar sensor. The vehicle vibrated and experienced shift problems, according to the suit.

Morgan seeks revocation of the vehicle and refund of the purchase price, along with costs of repairs and loss, interest and attorney fees. He is represented by attorney John N. Ellem of Ellem Law Offices in Parkersburg.
