SACRAMENTO – A Granite Bay man alleges that he was sold a vehicle with a defective transmission.
Herbert Brown filed a complaint on Oct. 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Ford Motor Co. and Does 1 through 75 citing the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act and the Unfair Competition Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in 2012 he purchased a 2013 Ford Fiesta equipped with a defective transmission through the defendant's dealership Future Ford in Roseville. The plaintiff holds Ford Motor Co. and Does 1 through 75 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to disclose to consumers about the defective Dual PowerShift 6 Speed transmission that is equipped in its vehicles, including the one purchased by the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks general damages, rescission of purchase contract, incidental and consequential damages, equitable and injunctive relief, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Hallen D. Rosner and Jeffrey L. Le Pere of Rosner, Barry & Babbitt LLP in San Diego.
