A Louisiana resident, Phremo Coleman, filed a lawsuit against Ford Motor Company claiming that the manufacturer failed to correct defects of a brand new Lincoln MKX. The lawsuit was filed October 3 for breach of warranty.
According to the claim, Coleman purchased the 2012 Lincoln MKX for $48,398 in April of the same year and was issued a warranty. Shortly after the purchase, the vehicle experienced defects including a defective transmission, noisy breaks, an oil leak, squeaking and rattling body trim, a power steering fluid leak and inoperative exterior lights. Through authorized sellers and service dealers, Coleman gave the defendant many opportunities to fix such issues, but it has failed to do so.
Coleman revoked acceptance of the vehicle on writing July 22, according to the lawsuit, but Ford refused the demand. Represented by Krohn & Moss attorneys Andrew Ross and John D. Barker, Coleman seeks actual damages in the amount equal to the purchase price of the vehicle, and the incurred costs of repair, attorney fees and interest.
