GRETNA – A couple is suing a local new car dealer after the engine and transmission of a Chevrolet Corvette they bought allegedly failed shortly after purchase and they were not offered a proper replacement.

Mite Meggs Jr. and Corrine Meggs filed suit against Lesson Chevrolet Company Inc. and General Motors LLC in the 24th Judicial District Court on Sept. 26.

The Meggses allege that on Oct. 3, 2013 they bought a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette from Lesson Chevrolet Company for $56,135. The plaintiffs contend that over six months after purchasing the car, it began shaking and making bad sounds and they brought it into the dealership with an engine problem at which time they were told the car would need a new engine and transmission. The Meggses assert they made a deal with the defendants in which they would receive a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette that had a different engine to ensure a similar situation would not reoccur and because all of the 2014 car models at the dealership had the same engine which they did not trust. However, the plaintiffs claim that when they received the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette model it was more costly due to different features and in fact had the same engine as the car they had before.
