MOUNDSVILLE — A consumer is suing FCA US LLC, a manufacturer, alleging violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
Laurie J. Wardle filed a complaint in Marshall Circuit Court against FCA US LLC, alleging that the manufacturer violated the West Virginia New Motor Vehicle Warranty Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 21, 2015, she purchased a new 2015 Jeep Patriot, manufactured and warranted by the defendant. After purchase, she experienced non-conformities with the vehicle, she alleges, adding that as a result of ineffective repairs, the vehicle is rendered worthless. She was caused to suffer aggravation, annoyance and inconvenience, the suit claims. The plaintiff holds FCA US LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to deliver a vehicle that was fit for its intended purpose, violated the implied warranty of merchantability, failed to effectuate repairs within a reasonable time and refused to repair the vehicle under warranty.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks revocation of acceptance, refund of the purchase price, relief for losses due to costs of repairs, loss of use, attorney's fees and costs, pre-judgment interest and such other relief as the court may deem appropriate. She is represented by Christina Gill Roseman of Roseman Law Firm PLLC in Pittsburgh.
