LOS ANGELES – A Calabasas consumer claims a vehicle she purchased jerks and hesitates upon acceleration because of a defective transmission.
Ashley T. Forster filed a complaint on May 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Ford Motor Co. and Does 1 through 75 citing the Manguson-Moss Warranty Act, the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and the Unfair Competition Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased a 2014 Ford Focus in November 2013 and that the vehicle came with a warranty. She alleges the vehicle's Dual PowerShift 6 Speed transmission has defects.
The plaintiff holds Ford Motor Co. and Does 1 through 75 because she believes that the vehicle cannot be repaired and that she would not have purchased it had she known of the defects.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks general damages, rescission, incidental and consequential damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Hallen D. Rosner, Jeffrey L. Le Pere and Kendra J. Woods of Rosner, Barry & Babbitt LLP in San Diego.
