PHILADELPHIA – In a recently-filed lawsuit, two litigants alleges Fiat Chrysler Automobiles disregarded state and federal commercial laws, when it sold them a new Chrysler vehicle with operating flaws which were not repaired after three separate attempts on the dealer’s part.
Kristin Hacker and Holly Tallone of Lansdale filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 14 versus FCA US, LLC c/o CT Corporation of Harrisburg.
In 2015, the plaintiffs bought a new 2015 Chrysler Renegade at Fred Beans, manufactured and warranted by the defendant, and both purchased and registered in Pennsylvania. The price of the vehicle was in excess of $20,000, including registration charges, document fees, sales tax, finance and bank charges, but excluding other collateral charges not specified yet defined by the Lemon Law.
Hacker and Tallone mutually claim they were provided a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty for the Renegade, but became aware that the vehicle had unspecified non-conformities. The plaintiffs added the defendant’s authorized dealer had made three repair attempts to comply with its warranty and correct the non-conformities, but to no avail.
For counts of alleged violation of the Pennsylvania Lemon Law, Magnuson-Moss 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 plaintiffs are seeking damages up to three times the purchase price of the subject vehicle, collateral charges, attorney’s fees and court costs, with a total cost not in excess of $50,000.
The plaintiffs are represented by Michael Power of Power & Associates, in Glen Mills.
