HOUSTON — A Rolls Royce owner is suing a Houston vehicle restoration company, alleging his vehicle was not restored as advertised.
Kenneth E. Lehrer filed a complaint March 18 in Harris County District Court against Post Oak Motors LLC, alleging violation of the Deceptive Trade Practices Act and the Consumer Protection Act, and negligence.
The suit says between 2000 nd 2007 Leher took his 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III to Post Oak Motors for restoration. The plaintiff says he spent at least $70,000 with the defendant but the car was not restored property.
Lehrer says he gave the defendant an additional $60,000 to repair the parts of the vehicle that had not been fixed.
On March 29, 2017, the suit says, Lehrer took the Rolls Royce to European Autoworks, and was told that the original repairs were not certified despite representations Post Oak Motors had made to the contrary. The plaintiff said he will need to spend an additional $65,000 to fix the restorations that Post Oak Motors failed to make.
Lehrer seeks reasonable and necessary costs of repair, out-of-pocket expenditures, loss of value, attorney fees, court costs as well as all other just relief. He is represented by attorney Benjamin R. Roberts of Benjamin Robert Law PLLC in Houston.
