Texas Consumer Claims Smith AutoPlex Sold Him A Lemon

Southeast Texas Record 12/4/07

John Read and his lawyer will spend Wednesday morning attempting to convince Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th Judicial District, that Mike Smith Autoplex sold him a "lemon."

The bench trial is slated to begin Dec. 5.

Citing the Texas Lemon Law, Read filed a deceptive trade practices suit against Mike Smith Autoplex and General Motors on May 10, 2007. He claimed the 2006 Buick he purchased for $21, 397.89 was rusted out underneath.

The Texas Lemon Law is a state law that helps consumers who have repeated problems getting new or leased vehicles properly repaired.

Before the suit was filed, Read claims Mike Smith Autoplex allegedly refused to properly repair or replace the vehicle. Read's lawyer then sent a letter to the dealership threatening legal action unless he received a refund but the company refused to budge.

In turn, GM also filed an answer in response to Read's claims denying any wrongdoing.

Read will ask Sanderson to award him actual damages, plus additional monetary relief for mental anguish and lawyer fees.

Background
According to Read's original petition, on Sept. 26, 2006, he purchased a 2006 Buick from Mike Smith. Copies of the sales agreement and certificate of title are attached to the suit.

"Defendants represented to plaintiff that such vehicle was new, safe, dependable and fit for the purpose for which it was marketed and sold," the suit said. Because of the representations, plaintiff purchased the…automobile for the total cash delivered price of $21, 397.89. Additionally, Plaintiff purchased after-market accessories for such vehicle at a total cost of at least $189.00."

When Read went to have the window tint installed on his "new" car, he was shown by the mechanic that the "vehicle was rusting out underneath," the suit said, adding that the mechanic advised him to get something done about the problem quickly or the vehicle would begin experiencing additional problems and become unsafe.

"When plaintiff returned the vehicle to Mike Smith's dealership, the…defendant's mechanic changed some bolts and told plaintiff there was nothing more he could do to repair the vehicle," the suit said.

"It immediately became clear to plaintiff that, in truth and in fact, defendants' representations concerning the condition of the vehicle were false, misleading and deceptive in that the vehicle was seriously defective and not fit for the purpose for which it was intended.

"More specifically, plaintiff would show that the vehicle, although sold as 'new' was most likely either used or floodwater damaged. The vehicle is unsafe and a danger to operate on the public streets and roadways."

Their silicon technology is called Rolex Syloxi (more here). The rolex replica sale ramifications for Tudor using an in-house made movement with a long power reserve and silicon parts may very well hint cartier replica sale as to the Rolex might be doing in their sport watches in 2015 or the years into the future. There is a modern design to the Tudor North Flag that we like. It is as if they combined the modern feel of the Tudor Pelagos with the retro military feel of the Tudor Ranger (welcomed in the hands on cartier replica uk the switch). While none of the design components of the Tudor North Flag are inherently original, it is a nice design curation louis vuitton replica sale by Tudor. We don't have all the tech specs yet, but the case is 40mm wide in steel. The North Flag name fake rolex sale is part of a North Person of polish lineage theme and making it through in cold temperatures... probably a good idea for those who have had to live New york or otherwise on the north east shoreline of the US this winter.

A great many people like to possess a property on the grounds that the advance you pay to the bank is identical to the rental you are paying, however one's money related capacity will have a major impact in the choice to purchase or to lease a house. www.usacheckcashingstore.com/san-diego
