BUTTE – A Magalia couple alleges that a Ford truck they purchase has defects and seek restitution.
Linda Morrison and Robert Strunk filed a complaint on Sept. 24 in the Butte County Superior Court against Ford Motor Co. and Does 1-50 alleging breach of the implied warranty of merchantability.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 6, 2017, the plaintiffs purchased a 2018 Ford Truck F-150 for $45,745.60 that was manufactured, distributed or sold by defendants and came with an express written warranty.
They allege during the warranty period, the truck developed various defects, including alignment, engine and axle defects.
The plaintiffs hold Ford Motor Co. and Does 1-50 responsible because the defendants allegedly breached the terms of the written warranty by failing to properly repair the vehicle and failed and refused to promptly replace the vehicle or make restitution.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant for damages in the amount of $45,745.60, restitution, civil penalty for each violation in the amount of $91,491.20, consequential and incidental damages, costs of suit, attorneys‘ fees, interest and other relief as the court may deem proper. They are represented by Sally A. Ayvazian of Sage Law Group in Glendale.
