Ford Faces Lemon Law Class Action Lawsuit

San Francisco, CA A class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased or leased a Ford vehicle in California and were charged for excessive damage and/or wear and tear when returning the vehicle pursuant to California’s Lemon Law.

The lawsuit, entitled Sansoe et al., v. Ford Motor Company, Case No. 3:13-cv-05043-PJH, seeks to cease Ford’s business practice of charging California vehicle owners and lessees, or requiring them to pay third parties, for excessive damage and/or wear and tear to lemon vehicles.

Under California’s Lemon Law, when a car manufacturer repurchases or replaces a vehicle, it is prohibited from taking a deduction for use of the vehicle other than that specified in a statutory mileage formula. A car manufacturer violates the Lemon Law by charging an owner or lessee any amount for use of the vehicle other than the mileage formula. Plaintiffs are represented by Kaiser Gornick LLP.
