HOUSTON — A Texas couple is suing Nissan, alleging breach of implied and express warranties.
Craig Benton Grissom and Christa Grissom filed a lawsuit Nov. 3 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Nissan North America Inc., alleging violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
According to the complaint, on June 6, 2014, the Grissoms paid $45,076 to purchase a new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder from Fred Haas Nissan for personal use. When delivered, the suit says, the Pathfinder was defective in materials and workmanship, and the defects substantially impaired the vehicle's use, value and safety.
The plaintiffs allege Nissan North America failed to perform the repair work in a good and workmanlike manner, failed to repair the vehicle to bring it into conformity with its warranties and failed and refused to buy back the defective vehicle.
The Bentons seeks trial by jury, damages of at least $75,000, rescission of the sale of the Pathfinder and returning the purchase price, pre- and post-judgment interest, litigation expenses and all other equitable relief. They are represented by attorney Richard C. Dalton of Mandeville, Louisiana.
