CHARLESTON -- A Raleigh County man is suing Ford Motor Company after he claims a vehicle he purchased was defective and did not conform to its warranty.

On Sept. 14, 2006, Charles England purchased a 2006 Ford F-250 from Hometown Subaru Kia for $33,900, according to a complaint filed Oct. 5 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

England claims after he purchased the vehicle, he experienced repeated non-conformities with it, which substantially impairs the use and market value of the vehicle and caused him to fear for his safety when operating it.

After a reasonable number of attempts, the manufacturer did not conform the vehicle to the warranty, nor did it replace the vehicle with a comparable vehicle that did conform to the warranty, according to the suit.

England is seeking revocation of acceptance and refund of the purchase price of the vehicle; damages for repair costs; and damages for loss of use, annoyance or inconvenience. He is being represented by Michael L. Glasser.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 10-C-1770
