CHARLESTON — Two Kanawha County customers are suing Ford and a Ford dealer, alleging deceptive business practices.
Pamela Wade and William Wade filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Ford Motor Company, Moses Ford Inc. and United Bank Inc., alleging violation of the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act.
According to the complaint, on July 30, 2017, the Wades purchased a 2015 Lincoln MKC from Moses Ford in Kanawha County. After purchase, the suit says, the Wades discovered extensive prior undisclosed body work on the Lincoln, plus a defective lift gate.
As a result, the Wades said they have suffered monetary losses, loss of use of the vehicle, mental distress and inconvenience. The plaintiffs allege the defendants fraudulently misrepresented the condition of the Lincoln, refused to remedy the defects and/or refused to cancel the sale.
The Wades seek trial by jury, all damages, attorney fees, costs, interest and all further relief the court deems appropriate. They are represented by attorneys Kristina Thomas Whiteaker and David L. Grubb of Grubb Law Group in Charleston.
