A resident of the capital filed a lawsuit against one of the centers controlled by Avtotor. The man got a new Kia Optima back in 2016, having paid over 1.8 million rubles for it, the car was accompanied by a guarantee for 5 years or 150 thousand km. As a result, in two years the owner dashed off 80 thousand km, the transport often broke down, in total he spent more than three months on repairs. When there were problems with the engine, a resident of Moscow refused to take the foreign car back and demanded to return the money to him. At the same time, the seller abandoned the relevant claim, against which the client went to court, demanding not only the return of funds, but also the payment of compensation, a fine and other expenses.
During the proceedings it was established that Ellada Intertrade should be the defendant. It was there that the claims regarding the models coming to the market from the Korean manufacturer were accepted. According to the decision of the higher authorities, the plaintiff must be paid 2.07 million rubles. In addition, another 30 thousand are provided as compensation for moral damage. At the same time, the man received a refusal regarding a forfeit and a consumer fine. This is due to the fact that the Muscovite did not apply to the manufacturer as part of a pre-trial claim.
