Focus and Fiesta Transmission Class Action Suit May Stall Your Rights

May 19, 2017 By: LemonLaw Category: class action suit, ford fiesta, ford focus

A Ford Focus and Fiesta class action suit is coming down the pike which will offer some modest relief to drivers for the issues they have experienced with their problematic vehicles.  However it might not be the best route for you to take, especially if you have been back to the shop repeatedly to address these concerns. Being that you will have to opt out of the Focus and Fiesta transmission class action suit once you receive the notice, this information below can provide some additional understanding on what you need to do in your particular situation.

This may not be the first blog post you have read regarding the problematic transmission in 2011-2015 Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta vehicles.  Our previous blog entry on the Focus and Fiesta transmission has yielded hundreds of complaints from all over the Country, and our facebook posts have also garnered a tremendous amount of response.  We have been talking about this topic quite a bit—appearing on TV newscasts and in newspapers—and 1 800 LEMON LAW has so far successfully resolved over 2,000 cases with this issue, with our clients receiving anywhere from thousands of dollars in compensation while continuing to own the car,  to complete refunds of their entire purchase price As many of you experience, your car’s transmission is prone to bucking and lunging, requiring drivers like you to return to the Ford dealership repeatedly for TCM and PCM updates, new clutches and in certain situations, entirely new transmissions.

A Focus and Fiesta transmission class action suit is in motion offering relief to ALL Focus and Fiesta drivers with this transmission.  Class action suits are often beneficial because they address a common problem and offer a common solution for everyone in the class. There are however certain situations, specifically when the car is in the shop repeatedly for the same issue, where an individual can achieve a much better result by opting out of the class and filing on their own.  In this particular suit, you have to opt out if you want to hold on to your individual rights to pursue a case in court.   Therefore, it is imperative that you explore your rights NOW and determine if the class action settlement is the right remedy for you and your situation.

If you have been back to Ford dealer repeatedly to address your transmission problem, please send us an email or call us at 1 800 LEMON LAW (1 800 536 6652) to discuss your rights and whether there would be a benefit to opting out of the suit.  It’s important to note that if you file an individual suit, win or lose, there is absolutely no cost for your representation.  All we ask when we accept a case is that you provide the necessary documentation, specifically the sales or lease agreement, your registration card, and your repair invoices or a copy of the repair history.  If you prevail, Federal and/or State Law require the manufacturer of your lemon to pay attorney fees and legal costs IN ADDITION TO your recovery.  In the rare case where we do not prevail, there is absolutely no cost to you of any kind.

If you have any questions surrounding the Focus and Fiesta transmission class action, feel free to reach out and we will be glad to either answer your question or find someone who can.

    I purchased a 2014 Ford Focus Titanium hatchback in January of this year. (2017). It only had 11000 miles on it. It now has 22000 miles and has been the worst car I have ever owned. It shudders, lurches, hesitates at low speeds, and jumps forward when moving slowly, in traffic. It stays in first fear a freakishly long time when emerging onto a level road, from a hill.
    I have had the clutch replaced which helped initially to a small degree but after a month, it has begun hesitating. jerking, and lurching again.I took it back to Ford again and they told me that tested the transmission out and nothing was wrong with it, which is false. The dealership is protecting Ford and trying to have me believe it is how I drive the car. Really? I have sent all my documents from purchase contract, extended warranty, (which I was advised to purchase), receipts for rental cars while the lemon is in the shop, and repair orders, to CapMotors in Texas. They are organizing and keeping files for customers who have been impacted.
    Ford has contacted me within the 10 day period between filing for arbitration and being assigned an arbitrator. They said my car did not qualify for repurchase at this time, but that I could go ahead with arbitratuon. I will be assigned an arbitrator next week. The car is currently experiencing starting issues so that is another problem that has emerged. This has been a nightmare and all I want is to get rid of this albatross. No dealership will take this mess on tradei-in, and I would not sell it to anyone as I have ethics. Most people research cars online and this car is a pariah in the media aft ner all the publicity. Ford needs to do the right thing and buy back these trainwrecks.
