PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia woman alleges General Motors violated federal and state laws when it sold her an automobile she claims was rife with serious mechanical problems and defects.
Audrey J. Luczak filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on May 18 versus General Motors, LLC c/o CSC of Wilmington, Del.
Per the litigation, on Aug. 13, 2015, Luczak purchased a new 2015 GMC Acadia, manufactured and warranted by the defendant, and both purchased and registered in Pennsylvania. The price of the vehicle was in excess of $42,451.00, including registration charges, document fees, sales tax, finance and bank charges, but excluding other collateral charges not specified yet defined by the Lemon Law.
In consideration of the vehicle’s purchase, GM issued Luczak several written warranties, including a three-year/36,000-mile warranty delivered at the time of sale, but Luczak argues GM undertook three documented unsuccessful repair attempts in connection with the warranty.
Through these attempts, Luczak said unsuccessful repairs were made to the starting motor. According to the suit, the vehicle continues to exhibit “defects and nonconformities which substantially impair its use, value and/or safety.”
For alleged violation of the Lemon Law, Magnuson-Moss (FTC) Warranty Improvement Act, breach of warranty, violation of Pennsylvania’s Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law (UTPCPL) and revocation of acceptance of contract, the plaintiff is seeking separate damages in an amount equal to the purchase price of the subject vehicle, plus all collateral charges and attorney fees not in excess of $50,000.
The plaintiff is represented by Michael Power of Power & Associates, in Glen Mills.
