BATON ROUGE – A consumer alleges a General Motors vehicle he purchased contains defects and is seeking rescission of the purchase.
Ause Ismail filed a complaint on Jan. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against General Motors LLC alleging that the automobile manufacturer violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 1, 2015, he purchased a new 2015 Sierra Denali for $70,044.11. When delivered, the Sierra was allegedly defective in materials and workmanship and such defects substantially impaired its use, value and safety. The plaintiff alleges he has been damaged in an amount of more than $100,000. The plaintiff holds General Motors LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to repair the subject vehicle in a good and workmanlike manner so as to bring it into conformity with the warranties.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks rescission of the sales contract and returning the purchase price, award for incidental and consequential damages, economic losses, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs of suit and all other relief the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Richard C. Dalton of Richard C. Dalton LLC in Mandeville.
