Indiana Consumer Law Group/The Law Office of Robert E. Duff announces a jury verdict in favor of the firm’s client, Heather N. Kesling. Ms. Kesling purchased an inexpensive car for $2098 from Hubler Auto Outlet and subsequently found out that it was unsafe to drive. The evidence at trial showed the vehicle had been driven less than 44 miles before it was permanently put in storage.
An expert testified for Ms. Kesling, and he told the jury that in his opinion the car was dangerous to drive because it could catch on fire, have a catastrophic loss of steering control or lose all power while driving on the interstate. He also said these defects would have been obvious to any mechanic who looked at the car. Another witness confirmed the dangerousness of the car’s defects.
