LOS ANGELES – A Twentynine Palms couple alleges a Ford vehicle they purchased has defective transmission.
Adrienne Patz and Justin Patz filed a complaint on March 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the defendants alleging Ford Motor Co. and Does 1 through 75 alleging violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that in 2014, they purchased a new 2014 Ford Fiesta, which came with a warranty. They state the vehicle was equipped with a Dual PowerShift six-speed transmission and allege the transmission had defects. The plaintiffs hold Ford Motor Co. and Does 1 through 75 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to inform the plaintiffs of the defective nature of the transmission and had they known, they would have not purchased the vehicle.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek general damages, rescission of the purchase contract, incidental and consequential damages, statutory damages, injunctive relief, interest, all legal fees, and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Hallen D. Rosner and David L. Herman of Rosner, Barry & Babbitt LLP in San Diego.
