This consumer class action alleges that Model Year 2018-2020 Ford F-150 trucks equipped with a 5.0L engine suffer from a defect which causes the vehicles to consume excessive amounts of motor oil. The complaint alleges that, among other things, the defect causes excessive wear on the engine, increased emissions, increased maintenance and motor oil costs, as well as posing a safety risk of engine failure.
The complaint alleges that Ford has known of the defect for years and, nonetheless, failed to provide an adequate fix while continuing to sell vehicles that possess the defect. The complaint further alleges that Ford has taken actions to conceal the defect, such as replacing the dip sticks in the engines to mask the consumption and reprogramming the software in the vehicle to relax the threshold for the oil warning light to illuminate. This litigation seeks to compel Ford to complete proper repairs for thousands of 2018-2020 Ford F-150 vehicles equipped with 5.0L engines.
