Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus Class Action Settlement Reached – Now what?

Lemon Law vs Class Action, Ford Focus, Ford Fiesta

So you bought a 2012-2016 Ford Fiesta or Ford Focus, what now? If you are reading this blog post, chances are your Fiesta or Focus has experienced the same shuddering, hesitating, jerking, lack of power, failure to shift, failure to start, grinding, activation of the “CHECK ENGINE” warning light, activation of the “TRANSMISSION OVERHEAT” warning light, or activation of the “TRANSMISSION MALFUNCTION” warning light that is happening with every Fiesta and Focus manufactured between 2011 and 2017. The most important thing for you to do is take the vehicle to a Ford dealership for a transmission system repair as often as necessary and you need to keep a copy of every single piece of paperwork the Ford dealership gives to you.
