CHARLESTON – A Dunbar couple alleges that a St. Albans auto dealership sold them a defective vehicle.
Oscar and Edith Faulkner filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Moses C&O Chevrolet alleging unlawful sales practices and negligent misrepresentation.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 16, 2017, the plaintiffs purchased a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe vehicle from defendant. They allege five days after purchase, the vehicle had transmission issues and they took it in for repairs. They allege the vehicle has experienced numerous problems since its purchase, and that the defendant deliberately concealed and omitted the vehicle's mechanical problems.
The plaintiffs hold Moses C&O Chevrolet responsible because the defendant allegedly sold a defective vehicle to the plaintiffs and did not disclose the defects to the defendant.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment for compensatory damages in an amount of more than the jurisdictional limits of the court, along with attorney fees, costs, and all other relief the court deems just and proper. They are represented by Michael M. Cary of Cary Law Office PLLC in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jennifer F. Bailey.
