Nederland residents Larry and Kathleen Delcambre have filed suit against Toyota Motor Sales, alleging they were sold a lemon.

The suit was filed April 25 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Sept. 18, 2010, the couple purchased a 2011 Toyota Camry manufactured and warranted by the defendant for $23,299.

Since that time, the plaintiffs claim the vehicle has experienced transmission problems, engine whining and knocking.

The defendant's ineffective repair attempts prompted the plaintiffs to make several requests for a refund, which have been denied, the suit states.

The plaintiffs allege the defendant violated the Deceptive Trade Practices Act by manufacturing and distributing a defective vehicle.

They are suing for more than $60,000 in damages, plus all court costs.

Frisco attorney Brad Riffe represents them.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. A192-361
