GALVESTON — A Galveston man is suing a manufacturer of recreational vehicles, alleging the defendant sold him a defective vehicle.
Harvey Grief filed a lawsuit Aug. 11 in Galveston County District Court against Thor Industries Inc. alleging violation of the Magnuson-Moss WarrantyAct.
According to the complaint, on March 13, 2015, Grief purchased a new 2014 Thor Motor Coach Tuscany from Camping World RV Sales for more than $295.000. When delivered, the suit says, the vehicle was defective in materials and workmanship, with such defects being discovered within the warranty periods.
The lawsuit states these defects have substantially impaired the vehicle's use, value and safety. The suit says Grief has suffered damages, diminution in value of the vehicle, out-of-pocket expenses, inconvenience, loss of wages and mental anguish.
The plaintiff alleges Thor Industries defectively manufactured the Tuscany, failed to repair the vehicle to bring it into conformity with warranties and refused to buy it back.
Grief seeks a trial by jury, damages for loss of use of the vehicle, diminution in value of its value and economic losses, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest, attorney fees, court costs and all other relief the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Richard C. Dalton of Mandeville.
