WINFIELD – A Winfield man is seeking damages after he purchased a truck he believed to be in good working condition that allegedly was not.
Christopher B. Bills filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against FCA US LLC citing the West Virginia New Motor Vehicle Warranties Law and Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 30, 2018, the plaintiff purchased a new 2019 Ram 1500 that was manufactured by the defendant. The suit states the contract price was $53,418.10 and the defendant gave the plaintiff warranties and guarantees about the vehicle's workmanship and specifications.
