FRESNO — A Fresno County couple is suing General Motors, alleging breach of warranty in selling a defective vehicle.
Guadalupe Olea Carmona and Jessica Carmona filed a complaint Nov. 16 in Fresno County Superior Court against General Motors LLC and Does 1-10, alleging the defendants violated the Song-Beverly Act and the Magnuson-Moss Act.
According to the complaint, on July 25, 2015, the Carmonas purchased a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze for $20,799.36 from Hedrick's Chevrolet in Clovis. The suit says the vehicle was delivered with serious defects and non-conformities to warranty and later developed other serious defects including problems with engine, coolant system and electrical system.
The plaintiffs allege the defendants impaired the use, value and/or safety of the vehicle, rendered the vehicle un-merchantable, and failed to either promptly replace the Cruze with a new motor vehicle or promptly make restitution in accordance to the warranty.
The Carmonas seek trial by jury, general, special and actual damages, rescission of the purchase contract and restitution of all monies expended, diminution in value, incidental and consequential damages, civil penalty, prejudgment interest, attorney fees, costs of suit, and all further relief the court deems just. They are represented by attorneys Mark Romano and Timothy Whelan of Romano Stancroff PC in El Segundo.
