CHARLESTON -- A man is suing three companies for breach of warranties and violation of the Lemon Law, among other things.

David A. Bennett entered into a motor vehicle purchase contract on July 26, 2008, with Kia Motor America Inc., White Dodge Inc. and Peoples Federal Credit Union for the purchase of a 2008 Kia Sedona, according to a complaint filed Dec. 10 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Bennett claims after he purchased the vehicle he discovered and experienced repeated nonconformities and returned the vehicle to the defendants for repairs.

Despite his efforts to allow opportunity to repair the vehicle, Bennett claims the defendants failed to do so. He claims they also failed and refused to provide a comparable replacement vehicle and to reimburse him.

Bennett is seeking compensatory and punitive damages; for the court to enter a permanent injunction against the defendants ordering them to cease and desist from engaging in unlawful acts; and for his contract with the defendants to be declared canceled. He is being represented by David L. Grubb and Cameron S. McKinney of the Grubb Law Group.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis Bloom.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 09-C-2267
