FRESNO – A Fresno consumer alleges a vehicle he purchased in 2012 has defects and seeks rescission of the purchase contract.
Juan Lopez filed a complaint on July 25 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Ford Motor Co. and Does 1 through 10 over alleged violation of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and the Manguson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 28, 2012, Lopez purchased a 2013 Ford Focus accompanied with express warranties to preserve or maintain the utility or performance of the vehicle. He alleges upon the delivery of the vehicle, he discovered serious defects including, but not limited to, various transmission, fuel system, coolant system and electrical defects.
The plaintiff holds Ford Motor Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to conform the vehicle to the applicable and implied warranties after a reasonable number of repair attempts and failed to either promptly replace the new motor vehicle or promptly make restitution in accordance with Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.
The plaintiff seeks judgment for all damages, rescission of the purchase contract and restitution of all monies expended, prejudgment interest, attorney's fees, and for such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper under the circumstances. He is represented by Mark Romano, Timothy Whelan and Aliaksandra Valitskaya of Romano Stancroff PC in El Segundo.
