FAYETTEVILLE – A Fayette County consumer is suing over a car dealer refusing to accept the return of a defective motor vehicle.

Saundra Adkins filed the suit May 16 in Fayette Circuit Court against Prudence Used Auto Sales Inc. and Holly Dilley, citing alleged fraud and breach of contract.

On Feb. 24, Adkins visited Prudence's used automobile lot in Mount Hope to inquire about a 2006 Hummer, she claims, adding that she took the vehicle for a test drive and discovered several flaws, which she allegedly reported to the salesperson who told her that he couldn't guarantee that the problems would be fixed. She left without purchasing the vehicle, she says.

She contacted Prudence's main lot in Oak Hill to tell them about the situation, she claims. Dilley allegedly told her the vehicle would be repaired and to come to the lot on Feb. 26 to purchase it. Adkins did so and drove the vehicle home, soon thereafter discovering several other flaws, according to the complaint. She returned the vehicle for repairs on eight separate occasions in the first two months after the purchase, the suit says.

The last time she returned the vehicle, the suit alleges, Adkins attempted to revoke the purchase agreement and demanded her money back. Prudence continues to refuse to honor her revocation of acceptance of the vehicle, according to the complaint.

In addition to a trial by jury, Adkins seeks an order that Prudence return the money she has paid and retake possession of the vehicle, damages, attorney fees and court costs, and other relief the court deems just. Adkins is represented by Bren J. Pomponio of Mountain State Justice Inc. in Charleston.
