FRESNO – Two consumers allege a Nissan vehicle they purchased three years ago has defects that have not been remedied.

Omar Sanchez and Jennie Alvarado filed a complaint on May 16 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Nissan North America Inc., Selma Nissan and Does 1-10 citing the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Oct. 20, 2013, they purchased a 2013 Nissan Altima from Selma Nissan. They allege the vehicle has defects with its occupant restraint system, airbags and transmission. They allege they have taken it to an authorized service and repair facility and that the vehicle still does not conform with its warranties.

The plaintiffs hold Nissan North America Inc., Selma Nissan and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed or refused to conform the vehicle to the applicable express and implied warranties after several attempts.

The plaintiffs seek judgment against defendant, rescission of the contract; award of actual, compensatory and general damages; interest; attorney's fees; costs of suit; and other relief the court deems appropriate. They are represented by Joseph A. Kaufman and Joshua Finkelstein of Lemon Law Aid Inc. in Pasadena.
