NEW ORLEANS — A couple is asking for their money back after buying a new Cadillac that has allegedly been wrought with service trouble. 

Michael Terrance Remedies and Shelly Remedies filed a complaint on June 30 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against General Motors LLC, Orr Motors of Shreveport Inc. and the Bank of America National Association. 

On Dec. 2, 2013, the plaintiffs bought a 2014 Cadillac CTS for a sale price of $60,929. After a down payment of $4,562, the vehicle was financed for more than $75,000, the lawsuit states; however, "many defective conditions have occurred since purchase, including, but not limited to, engine defects, electrical defects and transmission defects."

Despite numerous service visits, the lawsuit states, the defects were not allegedly fixed. 

The plaintiffs aim to have the court rescind the purchase order; revoke their acceptance of the vehicle and refund them their money, plus out-of-pocket damages, past and future economic losses, pre- and post-judgment interest, court costs and attorneys' fees. 

The plaintiff is represented by attorney Richard C. Dalton of Mandeville. 

U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana case number 2:15-cv-02382-MVL-DEK.
