CHARLESTON - Milton Motor Used Auto Sales LLC is being sued after a woman claims it was not honest with her about the condition of a vehicle she purchased.

On May 2, 2012, Patricia Davis entered into a motor vehicle purchase contract with the defendant for the purchase of a 2001 Ford Explorer, according to a complaint filed June 21 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Davis claims she specifically asked the defendant about the quality, durability and value of the vehicle and was assured the vehicle was a good, dependable car.

The defendant represented the vehicle had no history or prior problems or damage when in fact, the vehicle had been previously extensively damaged, including apparent damage resulting from submersion in flood waters or other waters and the dealer had actual knowledge of the damage or should have discovered the damage upon reasonable inspection, according to the suit.

Davis claims the defendant failed and/or omitted to inform her the mileage indicated on the vehicle's odometer was inaccurate and failed and/or omitted to delivery any written odometer statement, as required by law.

The defendant was negligent and its conduct constituted general unfair or deceptive acts or practices, in violation of West Virginia code, according to the suit.

Davis is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Cameron S. McKinney and David L. Grubb of the Grubb Law Group.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Charles E. King.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 13-C-1169
