CHARLESTON — A Charleston man is suing Ford, alleging breach of warranties in selling a defective vehicle.
Richard E. Kinder III filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Ford Motor Company, alleging violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 6, Kinder purchased a 2017 Ford Focus RS for $56,851.65 from a West Virginia dealership. After purchase, the suit says, Kinder experienced serious non-conformities with the vehicle, which rendered it substantially impaired and worth far less than what he had paid.
The plaintiff alleges Ford failed to manufacture a vehicle that was fit for its intended use and, despite numerous attempts to cure the defects, the defendant failed to conform the Ford Focus to its warranties.
Kinder seeks trial by jury, cancellation or revocation of acceptance, all damages, court costs, attorney fees, interest and all other appropriate relief. He is represented by attorney Christina Gill Roseman of Roseman Law Firm PLLC in Pittsburgh.
