HOUSTON — A Houston dealership is facing a fraud claim filed by a couple claiming the mileage on the warranty of their used Audi was misrepresented when they purchased the car, which they can no longer drive.

Steven and Abigail Parker filed a complaint Feb. 13 in the Harris County District Court against Mac Haik Chevrolet LTD doing business as Mac Haik Chevrolet and Houston Mac Haik Automotive LLC alleging fraud and violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. 

The Parkers purchased a 2013 Audi A6 from Mac Haik Chevrolet on Jan. 30, 2017 which appeared to have 71,790 miles on it at the time of purchase. They also purchased an extended warranty for $3,500. They allege in mid-2018 that the car began to experience mechanical problems and they could no longer drive it. The Parkers claim the defendant "misrepresented" the car's miles on the warranty as 7,179 and defrauded them out of the warranty. 

The Parkers seek monetary relief of less than $100,000, interest and all other just relief. They are represented by Randy Wooten of Randy L. Wooten PC in Houston.
