TYLER--A Texas couple is suing a Tyler auto dealership, alleging a vehicle they purchased displayed numerous problems almost immediately, violating the warranty.

Dan Stout and Olivia Stout filed a lawsuit Oct. 22 in the Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Heartland Recreational Vehicles and Tyler RV Center.

According to the complaint, on June 4, 2014, the Souts purchased a new 2013 Elkridge RV from the defendants for $35,104.22. When delivered and while still under warranty, the suit says, the RV was defective with water leaks, plus electrical, propane and air conditioning defects.

Even though the plaintiffs notified the defendants of the problems, and demanded a rescission of the sale of the vehicle, no repairs were made and the defendants refused to buy back the RV, the lawsuit says.

The Stouts seek to rescind the sale of the RV, as well as damages, past and future economic losses, trial by jury, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by attorney Richard C. Dalton of Mandeville, La.

Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas Case number 6:15-cv-00916.
