FRESNO – A Fresno County consumer alleges a vehicle she purchased last year has defects and the dealership failed to repair it.

Shannon Hines filed a complaint on Jan. 7 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Michael Cadillac Inc., doing business as Michael Automotive Center, and Does 1 through 20 over alleged violation of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.

According to the complaint, on June 9, 2018, Hines signed a conditional sales contract to purchase a 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque from defendant for $45,400.32. The suit states the sale of the vehicle was also accompanied by defendant’s express used vehicle limited warranty of three months or 3,000 miles from the date of delivery. 

The plaintiff alleges that after purchasing the vehicle, she discovered it was defective and failed to perform property. She alleges she took it to the defendant for repair at least two times and it has been unable to service or repair the vehicle after a reasonable number of attempts.

The plaintiff holds Michael Cadillac Inc., doing business as Michael Automotive Center, responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to repair, replace or repurchase the vehicle without additional cost to her.

The plaintiff seeks rescission of the contract, actual and exemplary damages, attorney’s fees, costs of suit, prejudgment interest, and such other relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Alicia L. Hinton of Law Office of A.L. Hinton in Fresno.
