A Louisiana husband and wife are suing Nissan and a Nissan dealership over alleged claims of failure to sufficiently repair problems with a warrantied vehicle.

Michael Warren Baker and Courtney Baker filed suit in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana on Aug. 24 against Nissan North America Inc., Giles Automotive Inc., and Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. over alleged failure to sufficiently repair their Nissan vehicle.

The claim states that the couple bought a new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder on April 20, 2013. The claim also states that they have had several problems with the car since purchase, all of which was covered by warranty. The problems included transmission defects, engine defects, air bag defects, backup camera defects, and fuel filler cap defects. The plaintiffs allege that they had brought it in for repairs several times and that the repairs were never performed sufficiently, and the problems persisted.

The Bakers are seeking an amount of damages of more than $50,000, rescission of sale, litigation costs, and any other relief deemed appropriate by the court. They are represented by Richard C. Dalton of Mandeville.
