CHARLESTON — Consumers are suing an automobile dealer and lender, citing alleged violation of the "lemon law."
Eddie and Tonya Keneda filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against the Ford Motor Company, et al., alleging that they violated the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, the Kenedas allege that on March 8, 2018, they purchased a 2017 Ford Fiesta from the defendants' dealership. After purchase, they discovered and experienced nonconformities with the vehicle that substantially impaired its use value and safety.
The plaintiffs hold Ford Motor Company, et al. responsible because despite numerous attempts to repair the subject vehicle, they allegedly failed to conform the same to its warranties, and failed and refused to provide a comparable replacement.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek recision of the contract and revocation of acceptance and award for all damages, with interest, costs and such other proper and appropriate relief. They are represented by Kristina Thomas Whiteaker and David L. Grubb of The Grubb Law Group in Charleston.
