A New Jersey Court deemed a Ford Fiesta a lemon because of persistent stalling and hesitation problems. Townsend v. Ford (2014).
“Dan Yurowski, field service engineer, testified for Ford Motor Company. He has 14 years experience with complicated repairs. He also trains service technicians at Ford Dealerships and testifies in Lemon Law cases. On March 18, 2014, he replaced the clutch in petitioner’s vehicle. It was leaking oil around the seal. When the seal failed, it impacted the clutch as it was wet. This would cause a hesitation feeling. During final repair attempt, he was told about the car bucking and hesitating. He conducted a 15-mile road test and was unable to verify the complaints.
