BECKLEY — A Raleigh County woman is suing a Chrysler/Dodge automobile dealer, alleging breach of implied and express warranties.

Samantha Riderique filed a complaint in Raleigh Circuit Court against FCA US LLC, alleging the automobile dealer violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

According to the complaint, on March 30, Riderique purchased a 2018 Dodge Challenger from Sheets Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Beckley for $35,488.80. Shortly after, the suit says, she experienced defects with the vehicle due to poor workmanship and craftsmanship. 

The plaintiff says she suffered loss of use of the vehicle, a risk to the safety of occupants and diminution in value. The plaintiff alleges FCA US, despite numerous attempts to repair the Dodge Challenger, failed to perform repair work in a good and workmanlike manner to conform with warranties.

Riderique seeks trial by jury, revocation of acceptance, damages, attorney fees, costs, interest and all other necessary relief. She is represented by attorney John N. Ellem of Ellem Law Office PLLC in Parkersburg.
