LOGAN – A Chapmanville couple is suing Thornhill Group Inc., doing business as Thornhill Ford Lincoln, over allegations a vehicle they purchased was defective.
William Allred and Tammy Allred purchased a 2003 Ford F-150 Supercab from the defendant on Aug. 14, 2018, and began experiencing mechanical problems with the vehicle two months later, according to a complaint filed in Logan Circuit Court.
The Allreds claim the vehicle leaked oil, needed new tires, the four-wheel-drive did not function and several gauges also stopped working.
The plaintiffs allege the defendant knowingly sold them a defective vehicle, did not disclose the defects, and failed to honor the vehicle's warranty.
The Allreds are seeking compensatory damages and a trial by jury. They are represented by Michael M. Cary of Cary Law Office in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Joshua Butcher.
