FRESNO — A Madera couple is suing Ford, alleging breach of implied warranty.
Lance Alan Goldsmith and Summer Lynn Goldsmith filed a complaint Aug. 31 in Fresno County Superior Court against Ford Motor Company, Lithia FMF, Inc., doing business as Lithia Ford of Fresno, alleging violation of the Song-Beverly Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, on May 26, 2011, the Goldsmiths purchased for personal, family and household purposes a new Ford Fusion over the term of the installment contract for $25,184.64.
After purchase, the suit says, the Ford failed to conform to the terms of the express warranty and implied warranties as agreed to in the contract. The Goldsmith say they performed their duties to maintain and deliver the vehicle to the authorized service repair facilities for checkups.
The plaintiffs allege Ford failed and refused to make restitution or replacement pursuant to Song-Beverly and failed to service or repair the Ford Fusion to match the written warranty after a reasonable number of opportunities to do so.
The Goldsmiths seek trial by jury, replacement or restitution of product, incidental and consequential damages, attorney fees, costs of suit, pre-judgment interest and all other relief the court deems appropriate. They are represented by attorneys Christopher M. Lovasz and Vanessa M. Lee of Consumer Legal Services PC in Long Beach.
