A Louisiana resident is suing over claims a brand new Lincoln MKX experienced defects the manufacturer failed to correct.
Phremo Coleman filed a lawsuit Oct. 3 in Jefferson County District Court against Ford Motor Company, citing breach of warranty.
According to the complaint, Coleman purchased a 2012 Ford Lincoln MKX from a seller for $48,398 on April 5, 2012, when Ford's written warranty was issued, but Coleman shortly thereafter experienced defects including a defective transmission, squeaking and rattling body trim, noisy brakes, an oil leak, inoperative exterior lights and a power steering fluid leak.
The complaint states Coleman gave the defendant, through authorized sellers and service dealers, ample opportunities to fix the defects, but it has failed to do so.
The lawsuit states Coleman revoked acceptance of the vehicle in writing July 22, but Ford refused the demand. Ford is accused of breach of written warranty and breach of implied warranty.
Coleman seeks actual damages in an amount equal to the purchase price of the vehicle and incurred costs of repair, attorney fees and interest.
Coleman is represented by attorneys Andrew Ross and John D. Barker of Krohn and Moss in Chicago.
