L.H. Poppenheimer (plaintiff) bought a motor home manufactured by General Motors Corporation (General Motors) (defendant) from Bluff City Motor Home, Inc. (Bluff City) (defendant). The warranty for the motor home stated that, for a period of 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever occurred first, General Motors would repair any defective or malfunctioning part of the motor home. The warranty also stated that it only covered repairs and replacements that were necessary due to defects in material or workmanship. Poppenheimer sued General Motors and Bluff City for breach of warranty. The trial court held that the statute of limitations began to run on the date of tender of delivery of the motor home and found that the suit was therefore barred by the statute of limitations. The trial court entered summary judgment in favor of General Motors and Bluff City. Poppenheimer appealed.
