HUNTINGTON – A Saint Albans woman is claiming a Huntington auto dealership sold her a defective vehicle without disclosing its issues.
According to the Cabell Circuit Court filing, plaintiff Misty Eskew filed suit against Moses Inc., doing business as Moses AutoMall of Huntington, alleging unlawful sales practices and negligent misrepresentations.
Eskew alleges she purchased a new Nissan Altima from AutoMall in August 2016 and two months later, found the car was getting poor gas mileage. She alleges six months after that, her vehicle began to vibrate and made rattling noises and for the next several months, she experienced other issues with the car.
In August 2018, she alleges the car's key fob malfunctioned and locked her out of her car, the dash lights flickered, the headlights did not work and other issues.
Eskew alleges the dealership concealed the issues about her car and was told "nothing was wrong" with the vehicle, according to the suit.
Eskew seeks compensatory damages, attorney fees and costs. She is represented by Michael M. Cary of the Cary Law Office in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul T. Farrell.
