Morganford Auto Sales alleged to have failed to perform inspections on vehicle prior to sale

By Lhalie Castillo | Aug 10, 2018

ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis auto dealership is alleged to have misrepresented the quality and condition of a vehicle.

James Trousdale, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on July 24 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Morganford Auto Sales LLC alleging violation of the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 10, he purchased a 1997 Saturn SW2 from defendant for $1,000 and that the vehicle was represented as being in good condition and free of defects. He alleges the defendant failed to disclose that it failed to perform both a Missouri safety and emissions inspection, which he later paid for.

The suit states on June 29, the vehicle's brakes failed and that the failure caused him to collide with another vehicle.

The plaintiff holds Morganford Auto Sales LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to perform a Missouri safety inspection and emission inspection in the 60 days prior to the sale, failed to provide the plaintiff with a safety inspection certificate and misrepresented the quality and condition of a vehicle.

The plaintiff seeks an order certifying the proposed safety inspection class and appointing plaintiff and his counsel as representatives, award for damages, plus interest, costs and attorney's fees and all further relief as the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Bryan E. Brody and Alexander J. Cornwell of Brody & Cornwell in St. Louis.
