BECKLEY – A Beaver consumer alleges a new vehicle she purchased has warranty nonconformities that have impaired its use and market value.
Danielle Dickerson filed a complaint March 22 in Raleigh Circuit Court against FCA US LLC alleging that the automobile manufacturer violated the state's Lemon Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 29, 2014, she purchased a new 2015 Jeep Patriot from the defendant's dealer. After purchase, the plaintiff alleges she experienced non-conformities with the vehicle that substantially impaired its use, value and safety and may be life threatening.
The plaintiff holds FCA US LLC responsible because after numerous attempts to repair the vehicle, the defendant allegedly failed to conform the vehicle with its warranties.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks revocation of acceptance and refund of the purchase price, award for all damages, attorney's fees, costs and expenses and such other appropriate relief. She is represented by Anthony M. Salvatore of Hewitt & Salvatore PLLC in Fayetteville. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Robert A. Burnside Jr.
