DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boynton Beach man who purchased a GMC Sierra for $96,000 from Delray Buick GMC is now suing General Motors after the vehicle died.

Edward Traylor of Casa Lona Boulevard purchased the new 2020 Sierra 2500 on December 31st, 2019. As he started to drive it, according to the suit, the vehicle sustained “defective engine, transmission and/or electrical system as evidenced by a hard shift, a clunk when slowing down, a shutter around shift point, a hard shift after the shutter, an inactive diesel exhaust fluid system, and more.”

The vehicle was serviced at least three times, but the suit claims that GM authorized repair centers were unable to fix the problem. GM has not been able to solve the problem.

“Plaintiff justifiably lost confidence in the 2500’s safety and/or reliability and said defects have substantially impaired the value of the 2500,” according to the suit which was just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. “(The) defects could not have reasonably been discovered by Plaintiff prior to Plaintiff’s acceptance of the 2500.”

Taylor is now suing for a replacement 2500, or a complete refund — in addition to attorney fees. He is represented by Natalia Singh of Krohn and Moss.
