Grand Island Suit Over "Lemon" Ambulance Moved to Federal Court

Posted: Updated:

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — A lawsuit filed by the city of Grand Island against an Oshkosh, Wis., ambulance manufacturer has been moved to federal court in Omaha.

The city sued Oshkosh Corp. and its subsidiary, Pierce Manufacturing Inc., in 2011, saying an ambulance it bought from the defendants is a lemon that spent more time in the shop that transporting patients.

The city paid nearly $206,000 for the ambulance that was delivered in September 2009. City officials say within two weeks, it was in the shop for electrical and other problems. It then went back 18 more times until it was taken out of commission on April 17, 2012.

The city is seeking the cost of the ambulance, plus interest, $6,000 for the cost of a replacement rental and attorneys' fees.
