A couple who bought a new car from Ray Brandt Nissan in Gretna are claiming the vehicle had severe defects that they were not made aware of.
Arthur Laurent and Hailey Laurent filed suit against Ray Brandt Nissan Inc. in the 24th Judicial District Court on March 30.
The Laurents allege they purchased a 2012 Nissan Maxima from Ray Brandt Nissan on Oct. 19, 2012 for $39,247.91. The plaintiffs contend that shortly after taking possession of the car they began to notice numerous defects in the vehicle’s electrical components, back-up camera, air conditioning and radio. The couple stated they took the vehicle in for repairs six times from August 2013 to January 2015. The plaintiff claim the last time they took the vehicle in for repairs the defendants were unable to fix it and that it is still suffering from the same defects.
The Laurents allege that if they had known the defects existed, they would not have purchased the vehicle.
The defendant is accused of breach of warranty and violation of the Louisiana Lemon Law.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought by the plaintiffs, reported Kyle Barnett, louisianarecord.com.
