Customers allege GM Silverado contains defects

By Noddy A. Fernandez | Sep 12, 2018

ORLANDO — Two customers are suing General Motors, alleging breach of an implied warranty.

Jose Cotto Diaz and Liz Rosario Velez filed a complaint Sept. 4 in Orange County Circuit Court against General Motors LLC, alleging violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

According to the complaint, on May 28, 2017, Diaz and Velez purchased a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado for $53,621.25. The suit says after the plaintiffs took possession of the vehicle Sept. 25, 2017, the GM Silverado experienced various defects that substantially impaired its use, value and safety. 

Despite the plaintiffs' delivering the Silverado to GM through its authorized dealership network on numerous occasions, the lawsuit states, the vehicle has failed to be adequately repaired, breaching the manufacturer's warranty. 

The plaintiffs allege General Motors has failed to comply with its written warranty by failing to adequately repair the defects within a reasonable time.

Diaz and Velez seek trial by jury, judgment for diminution in value of the vehicle, incidental and consequential damages of more than $15,000, attorney fees and all other just and appropriate relief. They are represented by attorney Brent Wikgren of Krohn & Moss Ltd. in Chicago.
