FRESNO – A Fresno consumer alleges a new vehicle she purchased is defective and the manufacturer has failed to remedy the problem.
Mary Rangel filed a complaint on June 12 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Nissan North America Inc. and Does 1-10 citing the Song-Beverly Act and the Magnuson-Moss Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Oct. 11, 2015, she purchased a new 2015 Nissan Rogue that she alleges was delivered to her with serious defects to the HVAC system. She alleges she has delivered the vehicle to the defendant's authorized repair facility but the vehicle still does not conform to the warranties.
The plaintiff holds Nissan North America Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants failed to either promptly replace the new motor vehicle, adequately remedy the defects or issue a refund.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for general, special and actual damages; civil penalty; interest; attorney's fees and costs of suit; and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Mark Romano, Timothy Whelan and Aliaksandra Valitskaya, of Romano Stancroff PC in El Segundo.
