LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — Two customers have filed a class action lawsuit against Kia Motors, alleging breach of warranty, fraud and unfair trade practices.
Christopher Stanczak of California and Rose Creps of Maine filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Aug. 8 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Kia Motors America Inc. and Does 1 through 10, alleging they manufactured and sold vehicles that have defective engines.

They are represented by attorneys Richard D. McCune and David C. Wright of McCune Wright Arevalo LLP in Ontario, California, and by Joseph G. Sauder of McCune Wright Arevalo in Berwyn, Pennsylvania.
