FRESNO – A consumer alleges a Buick vehicle she purchased has defects that still have not been repaired after taking the vehicle in for service.
Jo-Ann Johnson filed a complaint on July 5 in the Fresno County Superior Court against General Motors LLC and Does 1 through 10 over alleged violation of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 19, 2017, she purchased a 2017 Buick Envision vehicle from defendant together with an express warranty.
The plaintiff alleges that since purchasing the vehicle, she delivered it for repair to the defendant's authorized repair facility no less than five times due to electrical issues, which have not been properly repaired.
The plaintiff holds General Motors LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to service or repair the subject vehicle to warranty after a reasonable number of attempts, within a reasonable time, and/or complete repairs within 30 days so as to conform it to the applicable warranties.
The plaintiff seeks judgment for actual damages, rescission of the contract and restitution of consideration, prejudgment interest, attorney's fees and for such other and further relief as the court deems proper. She is represented by Matthew E. Neale, Aaron D. Fhima and Stacey S. Davis of Neale & Fhima LLP in Dana Point.
