OROVILLE – A Chico couple alleges a vehicle they leased has defects that have not been repaired after a number of attempts.
William James Ward III and Kelli Diane Ward filed a complaint on Nov. 21 in the Butte Superior Court against General Motors LLC and Does 1-10 over alleged violation of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, on March 10, 2017, the plaintiffs leased a brand new 2017 GMC Sierra at Courtesy Automotive Center accompanied with defendant's implied warranty of fitness.
However, the plaintiffs allege after they leased it, the vehicle has suffered serious defects and nonconformities to warranty that substantially impaired the vehicle's use, value, or the safety of plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs hold General Motors LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly was unable and/or refused to conform to plaintiffs' vehicle to the applicable express and implied warranties under the Act after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek rescission of the contract, actual compensation, civil penalty, attorney fees, costs, expenses and such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper. They are represented by Kimberli C. Zazzi and Vincent M. Onorio of Lemon Law PRO in Roseville.
