Class Action Involving the 2000 and 2001 Ford Focus Settled for Cash Refunds

This is a settlement for the Ford Motor Co. and Magna International lawsuit.

- by

On July 28, 2008, Judge Victoria Chaney of the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County, granted final approval of the settlement of the Class Action providing reimbursement to California owners and lessees of the 2000 and 2001 Ford Focus for front brake repairs.

Under the settlement, Ford is making full reimbursement -- in cash -- for qualifying repairs and claims. This ruling clears the way for reimbursement checks to be issued to Class members who submit valid claims by September 16, 2008.

I owned a 2001 ford focus that spontaneously caught fire in 2010. I contacted the company several times in the days and months after the incident. I informed the company that there was a recall on the vehicle that directly affected the engine and its ability to catch fire. Ford asked me for the fire and police department reports. ( which I sent along with photos). As so much time has passed every once in a while I will send an email just to keep my complaint alive. Is there anything I can do or is it to late?
