Lemon Law Ford

Driving a Ford Is Great, Until It’s Not.

The California Lemon Law Works to Protect Your Investment … and Safety.

When it comes to owning a new or CPO car, you want one that you know is safe and will last. That’s why so many of your fellow Californians have opted to get behind the wheel of a Ford.

From passenger cars to rugged trucks, Ford is recognized for its quality, design, value, and efficiency in its line of vehicles. But even among the most faithful of cars, a lemon can sometimes slip in. Those who unwittingly purchased one know the frustrations that come along with it. Persistent engine problems … endless electrical glitches … unrelenting transmission headaches are just a few of the complaints.

If your warrantied Ford exhibits recurring defects, you could benefit greatly — financially and with peace of mind — by calling the law offices of Strategic Legal Practices. We can help turn your potential lemon into a refund, a replacement car or lucrative cash compensation.

Here are 5 common Ford problems (and symptoms) serious enough to warrant a California Lemon Law claim.

  1. Electrical Glitches — faulty sensors, malfunctioning infotainment systems, power window failures, recurrent battery drain, power steering defects, A/C and ventilation issues, rear door child locks not operating properly
  2. Transmission Troubles — rough shifting, slipping gears, roll pin problems, jerking, full transmission failure
  3. Engine Problems — misfires, excessive oil consumption, reduced fuel efficiency, fire risks, spark plug issues, fluid leaks, defective engine block heater
  4. Suspension and Steering Complications — poor handling, vibrations, uneven tire wear, safety hazards, pulling to one side
  5. Brake System Failures — premature wear, brake fluid leaks, squealing or grinding noises, ABS malfunctions

How the California Lemon Law Protects Your Ford.

The Lemon Law in California states that your vehicle must have “nonconformities,” which are defined as any defect or malfunction that is covered by the original factory warranty. If any of these problematic “nonconformities” affect your car’s use, safety or value — even after a number of repair attempts have been made — you may be eligible to file a claim.

As one of California’s premier Lemon Law litigators, the expert attorneys at Strategic Legal Practices will work with you and fight for you to get a buyback, a replacement vehicle, a refund or a cash settlement that includes all costs you may have incurred.

Know your rights when it comes to a faulty Ford.

You’ve shelled out good money for your new or CPO vehicle, and as long as it’s under warranty, you expect smooth driving. But by the number or recalls, class-action suits, and Lemon Law claims filed against Ford, you know that’s not always the case. For example:

  • One of the largest of recalls covered nearly 1.3 million 2013-2018 Fusions. Safety regulators for the company stated that the front brake hoses could rupture and leak brake fluid. That could increase brake pedal travel and make stopping distances longer.
  • class action lawsuit was filed claiming that Ford sold certain 2007-2020 vehicles with defective water pumps that could suffer a sudden internal breakdown, leading to a “catastrophic” engine failure. The claim also states that the manufacturer knew of the faulty water pumps for more than a decade, but rather than fixing or disclosing the issue, continued to sell affect vehicles while not having the issue covered under its warranty.
  • Ford currently holds the title of one of the biggest lemons of all time with the 1971 Pinto. It had a history of catching fire even in the slightest of rear-end collisions. After a number of Lemon Law cases, and consumer fatalities, a major lawsuit resulted in the manufacturer discontinuing the model.

These are just three examples of the legal actions Ford has faced. Among the most commonly reported models are the Explorer, Focus, Escape, Mustang, Expedition, Fiesta, Ranger, Escort, F-150, but the truth is that any model with recurring problems could be a lemon. Even yours.
