PRINCETON — A Princeton couple is suing Jeep automobile dealers, alleging breach of warranties.

Ronda Thornton and William Thornton filed a complaint in Mercer Circuit Court against FCA US LLC and Ramey Motors, alleging violation of the Lemon Law.

According to the complaint, on April 9, 2015, the Thorntons purchased a new 2015 Jeep Renegade from Ramey Motors for $25,690. Following the purchase, suit says, the plaintiffs experienced a failure to start non-conformity with the Jeep, which substantially impaired its use, value and safety. 

The plaintiffs allege FCA US and Ramey Motors failed to make repairs in a good and workmanlike manner to conform the vehicle to its warranties.

The Thorntons seek trial by jury, refund of the purchase price, damages of more than $10,000, attorney fees, costs and all other available relief. They are represented by attorney William O. Huffman of Princeton.
