NEW ORLEANS – A Louisiana man says Chevy Silverado truck he purchased last August was defective, and repair attempts by Granger Chevrolet have allegedly been unsuccessful.

Patrick Robert Doran filed a lawsuit Jan. 6 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against General Motors LLC, Granger Chevrolet Inc. and General Motors Finance Co. Inc., alleging breach of implied and express warranties, as well as violations of Louisiana redhibition laws.

According to the complaint, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Doran purchased on Aug. 29 allegedly contained defects in materials and workmanship, including defects to the shock absorbers, steering box, interior and exterior cosmetics and electronic systems. The suit says the defendants were given ample time to repair the problems, but the more dangerous conditions were left unrepaired. As a result, Doran says the malfunctions substantially impaired the truck’s use, value and safety.

Doran seeks a jury trial, rescission of the sales contract, full refund of the purchase price of $88,121.36, plus expenses and legal fees. He is represented by Mandeville attorney Richard C. Dalton.
