FRESNO – A Fresno County consumer alleges he is entitled to a refund of the full purchase price of a Chevrolet vehicle he alleges has defects.
Marvin Gale Merrill Jr. filed a complaint on Sept. 7 in the Fresno County Superior Court against General Motors LLC and Does 1-50 alleging breach of express warranty and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 29, 2017, he purchased a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt that was designed and manufactured by the defendants. He alleges shortly after purchase, the vehicle experienced the various defects with the electrical system and the defendant was unable and/or failed to repair the vehicle within a reasonable number of attempts. He alleges he requested in March that the defendant repurchase or replace the vehicle, which was refused.
The plaintiff holds General Motors LLC and Does 1-50 responsible because existence of the alleged defects constitutes a breach of the implied warranty.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants for actual damages, civil penalty, consequential and incidental damages, costs of suit, attorneys' fees, interest and other relief as the court may deem proper. He is represented by Jessica Anvar, Benjeman Beck and Nancy Zhang of Consumer Law Experts PC in Los Angeles.
