HOUSTON – A Houston consumer alleges a Ford vehicle he purchased has transmission issues that are still occurring after repair attempts.
David Novick filed a complaint on Oct. 5 in the Harris County District Court against Ford Motor Co. alleging that the car manufacturer violated the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 4, 2014, he purchased a 2014 Ford Focus from Tomball Ford for approximately $20,000. Since purchase, he alleges he has encountered excessive defects with the vehicle and suffered loss of use of the vehicle, costs of repair and out-of-pocket expenses.
The plaintiff holds Ford Motor Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to repair the vehicle in a good and workmanlike manner and failed to correct the defects within a reasonable time.
The plaintiff seeks actual, statutory and exemplary damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees, costs and such other lawful and equitable relief. He is represented by Craig M. Patrick of Patrick Law Firm PC in Dallas.
