NEW ORLEANS – A Pennsylvania couple alleges a motor home they purchased from a Hammond business is defective.
Michael John Wilhelm and Betsy Jane Wilhelm filed a complaint on Feb. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against
Thor Motor Coach Inc. and Dixie Motors LLC
alleging that they violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and Louisiana redhibition laws.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on July 12, 2016, they purchased a new 2017 Thor Synergy from defendant Dixie Motors LLC for $82,995. When delivered, the Synergy allegedly was defective in materials and workmanship and that the defects substantially impaired its use, value and safety. The plaintiffs hold Thor Motor Coach Inc. and Dixie Motors LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to perform repair work in a good and workmanlike manner so as to bring vehicle into conformity with the warranties and refused to buy back the defective vehicle.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek rescission of the sales contract, revocation of acceptance, return of plaintiffs purchase price, award for incidental and consequential damages, diminution in value, economic losses, costs of suit, and all other relief the court deems appropriate. They are represented by Fred A. Pharis of Pharis Law Office in Alexandria.
