According to lawsuit, Elliot Sokoloff of Wellington purchased the used but certified 2017 Jaguar F Pace for $36,843, but immediately suffered problems that the dealership couldn’t fix.

Among them: “Defective engine, transmission and/or electrical system as evidenced by a metal noise, an illumination of the coolant light, a coolant leak, a coolant bleed line leak from the radiator, an illumination of the check engine light, an inoperable ECO start/stop, an abnormal noise coming from the pulleys, a damaged engine accessory drive belt, the engine running rough and a no-start condition.

The suit also claims the Jaguar Pace included “defective wheels as evidenced by a loose tie rods ends and excessive movement; defective body/trim and or electrical system as evidenced by an inoperable SIM card and an inoperable live date application; and any additional defects in the subject vehicle as reflected in the repair documents gendered by the Defendant’s authorized dealer network and in Defendant’s internal repair records for the subject vehicle.”

Attorneys allege that Land Rover “was unable and/or failed to adequately repair the defects in the Pace as provided by the Manufacturer’s warranty after being afforded a reasonable opportunity to cure.”

The suit seeks in excess of $30,000 which is the statutory minimum for filing in circuit court. Mr. Sokoloff is represented by Chicago attorney Ryan Patrick of Krohn and Moss, LTD.
