HUNTINGTON – A Mason County man is suing Wildcat Powersports after he claims the vehicle he purchased was defective.
On March 14, 2014, Brent Bush entered into a purchase contract with the defendant for the purchase of a 2013 Landcaster 650 Utility, according to a complaint filed July 10 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Bush claims he was told the vehicle came with a five year warranty and he was told the defendant would repair any problems with the vehicle pursuant to the warranty.
After purchasing the vehicle, Bush discovered and experienced several nonconformities that substantially impaired the use, value and/or safety of the vehicle and returned the vehicle to the defendant several times due to serious problems with the engine, according to the suit.
Bush claims the vehicle was at the defendant's dealership for approximately three months for repairs and it was still not fixed properly.
The defendant further informed Bush that it was "up to him" to seek reimbursement for his repairs from the engine manufacturer, according to the suit.
Bush claims if he had known the defendant would not or could not perform necessary repairs to the vehicle under the warranty he would not have purchased it.
The defendant's representations were false and misleading, according to the suit.
Bush is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. He is being represented by Kristina Thomas Whiteaker and David L. Grubb of the Grubb Law Group.
The case is assigned to Circuit Judge Christopher D. Chiles.
