PINEVILLE – An Itman couple is seeking a refund of a vehicle they purchased that they allege does not conform to the vehicle's warranties.
Rhonda Sue Repass and Johnny Alan Repass filed a complaint Nov. 6 in Wyoming Circuit Court against FCA US LLC alleging that the automobile dealer violated the West Virginia Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on June 27, 2016, they purchased a 2016 Dodge Journey from defendant's dealer for $45,002.16. After purchase, the plaintiffs allege they experienced non-conformities with the vehicle and that such non-conformities substantially impaired its use value and safety.
The plaintiffs hold FCA US LLC responsible because despite numerous attempts, defendant allegedly failed repair the subject vehicle to conform it with its warranties.
The plaintiffs seek a refund of the purchase price in the sum of $45,002.16, award for damages of not less than $20,000, costs and attorney's fees and all other relief that may be available to the plaintiffs. They are represented by Timothy P. Lupardus of Lupardus Law Office in Pineville. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Warren R. McGraw.
