Ken Grody Ford Carlsbad Named in Lemon Law and Fraud Lawsuit
The Vachon Law Firm announces the November 18, 2011 filing of the lawsuit Martin v. Vince Dixon Ford, Inc. (San Diego County Superior Court Case No. 37-2011-00059905). In this lawsuit, the plaintiff Charles Martin is suing Vince Dixon Ford, Inc. (a Carlsbad, California dealership that does business under the name “Ken Grody Ford Carlsbad”) alleging a failure to disclose a used vehicle’s rental history and violation of the California lemon law.
More specifically, the complaint in the Martin v. Vince Dixon Ford, Inc. lawsuit alleges that in October, 2010 Mr. Martin purchased a used 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee from Ken Grody Ford Carlsbad, and that Ken Grody Ford Carlsbad knew that the vehicle had previously been registered as a rental vehicle but nonetheless failed to disclose this fact to Mr. Martin in order to negotiate a higher purchase price.
The lawsuit further alleges that within one week of its purchase the Jeep Grand Cherokee manifested a defect that causes the vehicle to stall and the “check engine” light to illuminate. The complaint alleges that the existence of these defects amounts to a breach of the implied warranty of merchantability.
Note: The California Superior Court has not made any determinations regarding the merits of the Martin v. Vince Dixon Ford, Inc. lawsuit.
