Toyota lemon suit slated for June trial
A June trial has been slated in a suit filed by Nederland residents Larry and Kathleen Delcambre, who sued Toyota Motor Sales alleging they were sold a lemon.
As previously reported, the suit was filed April 25 in Jefferson County District Court.
Court records show that on Oct. 24 a discovery control plan order was entered in the case, slating the litigation for a June 2013 trial.
The lawsuit alleges that 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
