GALVESTON—A Galveston County woman is suing a Lexus dealer, alleging she was sold a vehicle that did not include features the dealer said it did.
Carol Zendeh Del filed a complaint Feb. 25 in Galveston County District Court against Fred Forshey and McCall-TL Inc., doing business as Lexus of Clear Lake, alleging negligent misrepresentation and economical damages as well as common law fraud.

The suit says Forshey also alleged that there were safety features on the car that did not exits.
Zendeh Del seeks trial by jury, damages between $100,000 and $200,000, attorney fees and court costs. She is represented by attorney Jonathan Zendeh Del of Zendeh Del & Associates PLLC in Galveston.
