Ford Spark Plug

Class Action Lawsuit Against Ford Motor Company

Summary of the Pending Case: On March 10, 2010, SFMS, along with co-counsel, filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, on behalf of various named plaintiffs and a proposed nationwide class of consumers, against Ford Motor Company ("Ford" or "Defendant"). 
 
On June 28, 2010, SFMS and co-counsel filed a First Amended Complaint. On June 15, 2011, SFMS and co-counsel filed a Second Amended Complaint ("SAC") which alleges that 2004-2008 F-150 trucks, 2005-2008 F-Super Duty trucks (e.g. F-250s and F-350s), 2005-2008 Expeditions, 2005-2008 Mustangs, 2006-2008 Explorers ("Covered Vehicles" or "Vehicles") were defectively manufactured by Ford. Specifically, the SAC alleges that the Vehicles are defective because the spark plugs frequently break during the replacement process, which results in owners and lessees, among other things, incurring significant time and expense (ranging from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars) to replace the spark plugs. 
 
The SAC seeks recovery on behalf of the nationwide class under the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act and on behalf of the subclasses under the consumer protection acts of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin and also asserts claims for breach of implied warranty and negligent design.

Status of Pending Case:

On June 15, 2011, Plaintiffs filed a Second Amended Complaint. Ford filed its Answer on July 15, 2011 and Plaintiffs are moving forward with discovery. Additional actions against Ford were filed in California and Florida. On February 8, 2012, the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation transferred all cases to the Northern District of Ohio and assigned to the Honorable Benita Y. Pearson.
