ORLANDO — A customer is suing the manufacturer of Jeep Wrangler, alleging breach of a written warranty.
Carlos J. Orozco filed a complaint Dec. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against FCA US LLC , alleging violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, on April 24, 2017, leased a new 2017 Jeep Wrangler manufactured and distributed by defendant for $33,000. Orozco says shortly after taking possession of the Wrangler, he experienced various defects that substantially impaired the use, value, and/or safety of the vehicle.
Despite delivering the Wrangler through its authorized dealership on numerous occasions, the suit says, the vehicle remains defective and has failed to conform as promised through its written warranties.
The plaintiff alleges FCA US has failed to repair or replace defective parts, or take other remedial action free of charge in the event that the Wrangler failed to meet the specifications set forth in the manufacturer's warranty.
Orozco seeks trial by jury, incidental and consequential damages, diminution in value of the vehicle, attorney fees and all other just and appropriate relief. He is represented by attorney Brent Wikgren of Krohn & Moss, Ltd. in Chicago.
