PRINCETON — Consumers are suing an automobile manufacturer, citing alleged breach of implied and express warranties.
Andrew L. Clark III and Karen L. Clark filed a complaint in Mercer Circuit Court against Ford Motor Corporation alleging that it failed to comply with the West Virginia Motor Vehicle Warranty Enforcement Act.
According to the complaint, the Clarks allege that on March 24, 2017, the Clarks purchased a new 2017 Ford F-350 from Duncan Ford Mazda in Blacksburg for $66,040.96. Subsequent to the purchase, the vehicle has been returned to defendant's authorized repair centers for service at least 20 times for the same nonconformities. As a result of the nonconformities, the vehicle's value, safety and use has been substantially impaired.
The plaintiffs hold Ford Motor Corporation responsible because it allegedly failed to make repairs in a good and workmanlike manner to conform the vehicle with the applicable warranties.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek refund of the purchase price of $66,040.96, and award for loss of use of the vehicle, attorney's fees, costs and all other relief deemed appropriate. They are represented by William O. Huffman of William O. Huffman, Attorney at Law in Princeton.
