Man represents himself in suit against Chrysler for allegedly manufacturing faulty new car
DONALDSONVILLE – An Ascension Parish man is suing a car manufacturer he claims sold him a faulty new car.
Raymond Oxmann filed suit against the Chrysler Group, LLC in the 23rd Judicial District Court on May 18.
Oxmann claims in late 2009 he purchased a 2010 Dodge Charger for more than $26,000 that was manufactured by the Chrysler Group and included a three year or 36,000 mile warranty. The plaintiff alleges shortly after he took possession of the car it began to run roughly and the check engine light and multiple other warning lights came on that he took to be indicative of a problem with either the engine or electrical system.
Oxmann asserts he took the car in for repairs on multiple occasions, but the issues were not resolved. The plaintiff claims in April 2012 he revoked acceptance of the Charger in writing.
The defendant is accused of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act by not appropriately addressing the defects.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought in the amount of incidental and consequential damages, incurred or needed costs of repair and all court costs including attorney's fees.
Oxmann is representing himself in the case.
The case has been assigned to Division B Judge Thomas Kliebert, Jr.
Case number 103,763.
