Ivan Gill and Rebecca Gill filed a complaint in Wyoming Circuit Court against Kia Motors America Inc. alleging that it failed to comply with the New Motor Vehicle Warranties Act.
According to the complaint, the Gills allege that on Nov. 7, 2017, they purchased a new 2017 Kia Sportage at Home Town Kia in Mount Hope for $40,632.35. After purchase, the vehicle has been in the repair shop with the same nonconformities, which are life threatening. The Gills suffered loss of use of the vehicle, annoyance and inconvenience.
