FRESNO – Two Reedley residents allege a Ford vehicle they purchased has defects and are seeking a rescission of the purchase contract.
Elizabeth Polman and Edward Cox filed a complaint on Oct. 30 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Ford Motor Co. and Does 1-10 citing the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on June 27, 2016, they purchased a 2012 Ford Edge that was accompanied with express warranties. They allege the vehicle was delivered with serious defects and nonconformities to warranty and developed other serious defects and nonconformities to warranty, including various brake defects. They allege the defendants were unable to conform the vehicle to its warranties within 30 days of delivery.
The plaintiffs hold Ford Motor Co. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly breached its obligations by failing to remedy the defects or issue a refund or replacement.
The plaintiffs seek judgment against defendants for general, special and actual damages; rescission of the contract; incidental and consequential damages; civil penalty; interest; attorney's fees; costs of suit and further relief as the court deems just and proper.
