BATON ROUGE, La. — A Louisiana couple is suing multiple companies, alleging sale of a defective vehicle.

Layton Wayne Thibodeaux, Jr. and Angela Lynn Thibodeaux filed a lawsuit June 27 in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana against Forest River, and U.S. Bank, alleging violation of the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act.

According to the complaint, on Sept. 11, 2014, Layton and Angela Thibodeaux bought a new 2015 Forest River Forester from Southern RV. However, the suit says, the vehicle was defective in materials and workmanship within the warranty periods. The defects substantially impaired the Forester’s use, value and safety, the lawsuit states.
