CAMDEN, N.J. (Legal Newsline) – An Audi owner in New Jersey alleges he and a proposed class paid more than $1,000 for defective replacement brakes that squeal.
Donald F. Brown Jr., on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Aug. 20 in the New Jersey Superior Court Law Division against AUDI AG and AUDI of America LLC citing implied warranty of merchantability, breach of implied contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff owns an Audi Q7 automobile and had replacement brakes installed at an Audi dealership in New Jersey. He alleges the replacement brakes frequently make a squealing noise when appealed. The plaintiff claims despite informing the defendants of the defect, they allegedly refused to repair or replace them and considers brake noise acceptable.
The plaintiff also claims he and the class were induced to pay approximately $1,700 for the defective, replacement brakes.
The plaintiff holds AUDI AG and AUDI of America LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to disclose the existence of brake defect to plaintiff and the class at the time of sale.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive relief, award of treble and punitive damages, attorneys' fees, costs, and grant such other and further legal and equitable relief as the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Stephen P. DeNittis of DeNittis Osefchen Prince PC in Marlton, New Jersey.
