BECKLEY – A Raleigh County couple is suing General Motors over allegation their new Acadia's warranty was not honored by the automaker.
June Pennington and Gilbert Pennington filed a complaint in Raleigh Circuit Court against General Motors Co. alleging violation of West Virginia's lemon law.
The Penningtons allege they purchased a new 2017 GMC Acadia from Beckley Buick GMC Auto Mall on Sept. 22, 2017. They claim shortly after their purchase, the vehicle experienced repeated nonconformities and was repeatedly returned to the dealer for repairs. The Penningtons allege General Motors failed to conform the motor vehicle to the warranty and failed to "replace the motor vehicle with a comparable new motor vehicle that conformed to the warranties."
The plaintiffs seek a refund of the purchase price, damages for the costs of repairs, a trial by jury and all other relief the court deems just and fair. They are represented by Paul Roop and Colleen Brown-Bailey of The Roop Law Office LC in Beckley.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge H.L. Kirkpatrick III.
