Cy-Fair residents allege new Kia is a lemon
A Cy-Fair company is suing after, it says, the Kia Sorento it purchased is a lemon.
Cy-Fair residents Luis and Claudia Rincon filed a lawsuit on Sept. 19 in the Harris County District Court against Kia Motors America, citing breach of warranties.
The Rincons say that on May 4, 2010, they purchased a 2011 Kia Sorento with a five-year or 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty for $24,237.94 from Joe Myers Mazda. According to the brief, the Rincons, shortly after taking possession of the car, discovered its numerous defects, including, among many other things, a defective transmission, a defective engine, and a defective electrical system.
The suit alleges that Kia Motors is unable or unwilling to repair the car.
The Rincons are seeking actual damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. They are being represented in the case by Chicago attorney Robert Kiddie.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2011-55643.
