FRESNO — Two Fresno consumers are suing Ford, alleging breach of an implied warranties.
Trina Mora and Destinay Garcia-Montalvo filed a complaint Sept. 26 in Fresno County Superior Court against Ford Motor Company and Does 1 through 10, alleging violation of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, on May 19, 2016, Mora and Garcia-Motalvo purchased a 2014 Ford Focus accompanied with express warranties provided by the defendants. The suit says the warranties agreed to preserve or maintain the utility or performance of the vehicle or provide compensation if there was a failure in performance.
The plaintiffs say the Ford Focus was delivered with serious problems with the transmission, engine and steering/suspension and structural defects.
The plaintiffs allege the defendant failed to promptly replace the new Ford Focus or promptly make restitution in accordance with the warranties.
Mora and Garcia-Montalvo seek trial by jury, general, special and actual damages, rescission of the purchase contract, pre-judgment interest, attorney fees, costs of suit, and all other relief the court deems just and proper. They are represented by attorneys Mark Romano and Timothy Whelan of Romano Stancroff PC in El Segundo.
