LOS ANGELES (AP) — The owner of four Southern California car dealerships is suing Mitsubishi Motors North America and its credit arm because it allegedly forced them to stock more vehicles than they could sell, costing them millions in extra finance charges.

NBC reports the suits filed last and earlier this year by Abbas Ahmadi in state court involved dealerships in Cerritos, Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa and Victorville and allegations including breach of contract, unfair business practices and unjust enrichment. He demands a jury trial.

Ahmadi says Mitsubishi set sales goals of 500,000 cars nationwide by 2005 and required dealerships to up their inventory and infrastructure, and increased finance charges.

Mitsubishi Motors North America said in a statement that the underlying claims are "entirely without merit" and it's "aggressively defending" itself.
