PINEVILLE — A Wyoming County customer is suing General Motors, alleging breach of express warranty.
Joshua D. Blackburn of Lynco filed a complaint March 28 in Wyoming Circuit Court against General Motors LLC, alleging violation of the Consumer Protection/New Motor Vehicles Warranties Act of West Virginia.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 20, 2014, after Blackburn purchased a new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze, the automobile failed to comply with the express warranty because the Cruze has been in the shop with the same nonconforming warranties that are life-threatening and it has been out of service the requisite period time by law.
As a result, Blackburn says he has suffered loss of use, annoyance and inconvenience. The plaintiff alleges General Motors failed to make repairs that would cause the vehicle to conform to the express warranties.
Blackburn seeks trial by jury, a refund of $41,197.60, incidental and consequential damages not less than $20,000, attorney fees, court costs and all proper relief. He is represented by attorney Timothy P. Lupardus of Lupardus Law Office in Pineville.
