SACRAMENTO – Four consumers allege that that a panoramic sunroof on their vehicles is defective.
Doug Krebsbach, Kathy Krebsbach, James Alexander and Martha Alexander filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated on Sept. 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Ford Motor Co. citing the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, unjust enrichment and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they purchased the defendant's vehicles that were all equipped with a factory-installed panoramic sunroof. However, they allege that the sunroof's compromised tempered glass cannot withstand the pressures and flexing that the sunroof frame and vehicle demand, causing it to shatter.
The plaintiffs hold Ford Motor Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to alert consumers of the risk/defects of sunroof, denied warranty coverage with respect to the defective sunroof and failed to repair or replace the sunroofs at no charge to plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment in their favor, damages, restitution, disgorgement, disclose and repair the defective sunroofs, interest, attorneys' fees, costs of suit, expert witness fees and further relief as the court may deem just. They are represented by Crystal Foley of Simmons Hanly Conroy LLC in El Segundo, Paul J. Hanly Jr. and Mitchell M. Breit of Simmons Hanly Conroy LLC in New York and Gregory F. Coleman, Mark E. Silvey, Adam A. Edwards and Lisa A. White of Greg Coleman Law PC in Knoxville, Tennessee.
