NEW ORLEANS – A consumer alleges a pickup he purchased has defects that have not been remedied.
James A. Brown filed a complaint on Oct. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against General Motors LLC alleging that the car manufacturer violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 7 he purchased a new 2016 GM Sierra 1500. He alleges that the vehicle has defective motor mounts and issues with the air conditioning. The plaintiff holds General Motors LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to repair the Sierra 1500 so as to bring it into conformity with the warranties and failed and refused to buy back the defective vehicle.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks rescission of the sale and return of the purchase price, revocation of acceptance, award for incidental, consequential and non-pecuniary damages, any diminution in value, litigation costs and expenses and all other relief deemed appropriate. He is represented by Richard C. Dalton of Richard C. Dalton LLC in Mandeville.
