FRESNO – An Ahwahnee consumer is seeking the rescission of a sales contract because the vehicle she purchased allegedly has a defective Takata airbag.
Sharon A. Loughlin filed a complaint on May 10 in the Fresno County Superior Court against American Motor Co. Inc. and Does 1-10 alleging that they violated the Song-Beverly Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased a 2009 Honda Fit in 2009 that came equipped with faulty Takata airbags. She alleges the vehicle was not of the same quality as those generally acceptable in the trade because of the airbags.
The plaintiff holds American Motor Co. Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly concealed a known defect from the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks rescission of the purchase contract and restitution of all monies expended, award for incidental and consequential damages, plus interest, penalties, attorney's fees and costs and all other just and proper relief. She is represented by Steve Mikhov and Amy Morse of Knight Law Group LLP in Los Angeles.
