Case Overview

FeganScott is launching investigations into Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) on behalf of owners and lessees of 2021 Ford Expedition, 2021 Lincoln Navigator, 2013-2019 Ford Escape, 2013-2018 Ford C-Max, 2013-2016 Ford Fusion, 2013-2021 Ford Transit Connect, and 2015-2018 Ford Edge vehicles relating to safety defects placing consumers at risk of injury or death.

One of the potential defects, found in 2021 Ford Expeditions and 2021 Lincoln Navigators, can lead to spontaneous engine compartment fires. Ford informed the National Highway Transit Safety Administration (NHTSA) that fires can start while vehicles are in operation or parked with the engine off.

Ford has issued a recall for these vehicles, but FeganScott urges drivers to take caution. In its NHTSA filings, Ford disclosed 16 instances in which the Ford vehicles named in the recall have caught fire.

The firm is also investigating a second safety-related recall of 2013-2019 Ford Escape, 2013-2018 Ford C-Max, 2013-2016 Ford Fusion, 2013-2021 Ford Transit Connect, and 2015-2018 Ford Edge vehicles. This defect concerns issues with a transmission cable that can detach, resulting in the vehicle rolling away without warning which can result in crashes and serious injury.

Owners and lessees of the vehicles in question are urged to contact FeganScott at Ford@feganscott.com to learn more about their rights under the law.
