BECKLEY – A West Virginia couple alleges a new Honda vehicle they purchased has issues that the manufacturer has failed to correct.
Nora Shea and Larry Shea filed a complaint in Raleigh Circuit Court against American Honda Motor Co. Inc. citing the West Virginia Consumer Protection-New Motor Vehicles Warranties Act.
The suit states that the plaintiffs are owners of a new Honda Pilot that they purchased on Dec. 27, 2017, from John Howerton Honda in Beckley for $48,355.83. They allege the vehicle has nonconformities with the warranty that are life-threatening and the manufacturer has made a number of attempts to repair it but has not done so.
The plaintiffs are seeking a refund of the $17,279 trade-in allowance and other costs, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by Timothy P. Lupardus of Lupardus Law Office in Pineville.
The case has been assigned to Judge H.L. Kirkpatrick III.
