New Jersey & Pennsylvania Ford Lemon Law Attorney

Although Ford Motor Company has made a concerted effort to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of its vehicles in recent years, a variety of models continue to be plagued by defects that have led to numerous recalls and lawsuits. If you have purchased or leased a Ford vehicle that has been in for multiple repairs while under warranty, you may have a lemon on your hands.

At Timothy Abeel & Associates, P.C., our experienced Lemon Law attorneys have a proven track record of pursuing successful claims for all types of Ford models, including the Focus, Fusion, Fiesta, Edge, Escape, Mustang as well as the F-150, F-250, and F-350 trucks.  We are well versed in state Lemon Laws in New York and Pennsylvania as well as federal warranty law and can help you obtain significant compensation.

Over our many years of practice we have handled a wide range of problems for Ford owners and lessees including engine failures, transmission problems, leaking oil and fluids, excessive noise, and many others.

Ford Settles Fiesta/Focus Class Action Lawsuit

Ford Motor Co. recently settled a class action lawsuit involving 2011-2016 Ford Fiestas and 2012-2016 Ford Focuses. The automaker has agreed to provide substantial cash payments and other benefits to owners and lessees of about 1.5 million of these vehicles which had to be repaired for allegedly malfunctioning Dual Clutch/PowerShift Transmissions. The defect caused the vehicles to slip, buck, kick or jerk while accelerating.

Some vehicles required multiple software and hardware repairs to correct the problem, and because of backlogs, some owners experienced extended delays lasting weeks or months. Under the settlement, members of the class will receive cash payouts based on the number of repairs or the option to receive a significant discount toward the purchase of a new Ford vehicle.

Ford Recalls

In addition to the recently announced class action settlement, Ford has issued numerous technical service bulletins and recalls:

  • In May 2017, the automaker issued two recalls covering 3,000 trucks and SUVs in North America. The first recall covers about 2,195 2017 F-150, Super Duty Pickup and Ford Explorer SUVs in the U.S. The vehicles may have improperly welded driver seat back frames that may not adequately restrain occupants in an accident. Ford is also recalling about 551 trucks fitted with aftermarket chrome exterior handles that may unlatch during a side impact. The affected trucks are 2015-17 Ford F-150s and 2017 F-250s to F-550s.
  • In March 2017, Ford announced the recall of 360,000 vehicles including the 2010-2105 Escape SUV, Fiesta and Fusion. All of these vehicles were equipped with Ford 1.6 liter EcoBoost engines that have been the source of numerous defects over the years. The vehicles are being recalled due to overheating caused by poor coolant circulation that may have resulted in 29 engine fires.
  • In April 2016, Ford announced the recall of 261,890 vehicles for a spate of problems including transmission, suspension and tire defects. Of these, 184,000 models of the 2011-2012 Ford F-150, 2012 Expedition, Mustang and Lincoln navigator were recalled for transmission defects that may suddenly downshift to first gear, causing the rear tires to slide or lockup. Additionally, 75,364 2014-1025 Explorer and Police Interceptor models were called for improperly welded rear-suspension links.
