RIPLEY – A Kanawha County couple are seeking the cancellation of a sales contract of a Dodge vehicle they allege has defects.
Shane Hill and Karen Hill filed a complaint Oct. 16 in Jackson Circuit Court against FCA US LLC and I-77 Auto Group Inc. alleging that they violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on May 29, 2016, they purchased a 2016 Dodge Dart vehicle from defendants' authorized dealer I-77 Auto for personal use. After purchase, they allege they experienced nonconformities with the vehicle that substantially impaired its use, value and safety. The suit states the plaintiffs have taken the vehicle to I-77 Auto and other dealers at least six times for repairs.
The plaintiffs holds FCA US LLC and I-77 Auto Group Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly sold a vehicle that did not conform to the manufacturer's warranties, failed to make repairs in a good and workmanlike manner and failed to provide comparable replacement or to reimburse plaintiffs' purchase price.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek revocation of acceptance and the return of the purchase price, compensatory, punitive and consequential damages, costs, interest and such other relief as the court deems appropriate. They are represented by Kristina Thomas Whiteaker and David L. Grubb of The Grubb Law Group in Charleston.
