HUNTINGTON — A couple is suing an automobile dealer and financer, citing alleged breach of implied warranty and design defect.
Danny Cottrell and Angela Cottrell filed a complaint in the Cabell Circuit Court against General Motors, LLC, Hurricane Chevrolet and Wells Fargo Dealer Services, a division of Wells Fargo Bank, NA, for alleged violations of the Lemon Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs purchased a new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu on Nov. 21, 2015, but the vehicle did not conform to the manufacturer's express warranties. Despite being informed of the vehicle's defects, the Cottrells said the defendants allegedly did not make necessary repairs, resulting in great monetary loss.
The plaintiffs claim the defendants failed to repair the vehicle to bring it into conformity under the express and implied warranties offered and the agreed contract.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek actual damages, costs, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest and general relief the court may deem appropriate. They are represented by Benjamin Sheridan of Klein & Sheridan, LC in Hurricane.
