ORLANDO — Consumers are suing Chrysler, alleging the vehicle manufacturer, put a defective vehicle on the market.
Jason Dean Purvis and Michelle Michalowna Purvis filed a complaint April 30 in Orange County Circuit Court against FCA US LLC, alleging the vehicle manufacturer obtained profit through unfair or deceptive trade or commerce.
According to the complaint, on April 20, 2016, the Purvises purchased from Titusville Chrysler a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan for $36,878.25. The suit says the Purvises have suffered loss of monies and/or property as a result of purchasing a defective vehicle and further injury from Titusville Chrysler's ineffective attempts to remedy the various defects shortly after the plaintiffs' possession of the Dodge Grand Caravan.
The plaintiffs allege FCA US induced the Purvises to purchase its defective Dodge Grand Caravan, failed to adequately repair the defects on the vehicle, and impaired the use, value and/or safety of the vehicle.
The Purvises seek trial by jury, incidental and consequential damages of more than $15,000, attorney fees, witness fees, court costs and all further relief the court deems just. They are represented by attorney Brent Wikgren of Krohn & Moss Ltd. in Chicago.
