SACRAMENTO — A customer is suing General Motors, alleging breach of implied warranty.
Dustin Cooper filed a complaint Feb. 16 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against General Motors LLC and Does 1-20, alleging that the manufacturer produced and sold a defective vehicle.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 16, 2015, Cooper purchased a slightly used 2015 Chevrolet Corvette CPE from Champion Chevrolet in Reno, Nevada. The suit says Cooper has suffered financial harm because the car developed chronic problems and defects, which GM has failed to repair despite multiple attempts.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants sold a vehicle with serious engine issues, failed to remedy, repair and/or fix the issues with the vehicle, and impaired the use, value and safety of the vehicle.
Cooper seeks trial by jury, declaratory relief, actual damages, restitution, civil penalties, attorney fees, costs and expenses and all other relief the court deems proper. He is represented by attorneys Jon Jacobs and Rene Dupart of Law Offices of Jon Jacobs in Rocklin.
