Ford Diesel Truck Emission Scandal Heats Up
In 2015 Volkswagen was found to have been selling “clean” diesel vehicles that we not clean but were, in fact, significantly worse for the environment. It appears we may now be adding Ford Motor Company (Ford) to the growing list of major vehicle manufacturers who have grossly deceived consumers about their supposed environmentally-friendly vehicles.
Ford makes the number one selling truck in the United States, the Ford F-Series. It is the Ford F-Series which is now the subject of scrutiny as a result of a lawsuit filed by drivers alleging Ford’s F-250 and F-350 Super Duty diesel pickup trucks are emitting at least 50 times the legal limit of pollutants into the air. The lawsuit contains dozens of allegations against Ford including racketeering, violations of state consumer laws and false advertising. The Ford F-Series trucks, marketed as “the cleanest super diesel ever”, were sold between 2011 and 2017 at a cost of nearly $10,000 more than the gasoline-powered equivalent.
Ford spokesman Daniel Barbosa, issued a statement on January 10, 2018 strongly denying the allegations and vowing to defend Ford “against these baseless claims.”
Here at Consumer Law Experts, we have a big problem when the little guy gets pushed around by the big guy. That’s why we represent consumers against large car manufacturers like Ford when they deceive consumers as they are alleged to have done in this case. When the news first came out about the Volkswagen emission scandal we were flooded with calls for weeks. We ultimately represented hundreds of California Volkswagen TDI owners in individual lawsuits against Volkswagen. We’re pleased to report that we had tremendous success in recovering millions of dollars in settlements and vehicle buybacks for our Volkswagen TDI clients.
Consumer Law Experts is keeping a close eye on this matter with Ford’s F-Series Diesel Trucks. Should it come to light that Ford indeed perpetrated as suspected then you can rest assured that we will fight hard for consumers rights and strive to get our clients paid for the damage Ford may have done.
Are you a Ford owner? Even if you don’t own one of these Ford F-Series Diesel Trucks suspected of the emissions issue, you may have a Ford Fusion, Ford Escape, Ford Explorer, Ford Mustang, Ford Edge or some other Ford vehicle that is eligible to file a Lemon Law claim.
Every year Consumer Law Experts helps thousands of consumers recover millions of dollars from the major manufacturers who sell defective or non-conforming vehicles.

The part is we can represent you for no out of pocket cost, you will never get a bill for your attorney’s fees, but rather we use state and federal lemon laws to demand the manufacturers to pay your attorney’s fees and costs!
