ORLANDO — An Orange County customer is suing a motor vehicles distributor, alleging breach of implied warranty.
Luis A. Rivera filed a complaint Dec. 11 in Orange County Circuit Courgt against FCA US LLC, alleging violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, on April 25, 2016, Rivera purchased from FCA US a 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 for $61,393.02 that includes written warranties, collateral charges, registration charges, document fees and sales tax.
Rivera alleges after taking possession of the Dodge Ram he experienced various defects and non-conformities covered by the written warranty that substantially impaired the use, value and/or safety of the vehicle.
The plaintiff alleges FCA US, failed to comply with the terms and conditions of its written warranty and failed to timely repair the vehicle despite receiving notice of defects.
Rivera seeks trial by jury and seeks judgment for incidental and consequential damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees, taxable costs and all other relief the court deems just and appropriate. He is represented by attorney Jeremy Kespohl of Morgan & Morgan PA in Jacksonville.
