1. Ford Powershift Dual Clutch Transmission
A preliminary settlement has been reached in the Ford transmission class action. We provide a Free Consultation to discuss the class action, remedies, and rights. Here is what the Court notice says,
1. Ford Transmission Hearing
“Ford Motor Company (“Ford”) has agreed to a proposed Settlement (“Settlement”) to resolve the three cases referenced above, relating to alleged problems with the PowerShift Dual-Clutch Automatic (DPS6) Transmission (“PowerShift Transmission”) in certain Ford vehicles. By agreeing to settle, Ford does not admit any wrongdoing. The proposed Settlement will not become final unless and until it is approved by the Court following a Fairness Hearing to be held on October 2, 2017, at 10:00 a.m.
2. Ford Focus and Fiesta Ownership and Membership in the Class
You are a member of a proposed Settlement Class (“Class Member”) if you are a past or current owner or lessee of a 2012-2016 Ford Focus or a 2011-2016 Ford Fiesta equipped with a PowerShift Transmission (“Class Vehicle”). Owners or lessees with pending lawsuits against Ford based on alleged problems with the PowerShift Transmission in Class Vehicles are automatically excluded from participating in the Settlement, but if they dismiss their lawsuits before final judgment, they can choose to become class members by opting in to the Settlement. Other exclusions apply, as discussed below in the “Understanding The Settlement” section.
You must decide now whether you want to be part of the proposed Settlement or whether you would like to exclude yourself from the proposed Settlement and preserve your right to sue Ford individually for problems with your PowerShift Transmission. If you decide to be part of the proposed Settlement, and if the Court approves the proposed Settlement, you will be entitled to the benefits described below. However, you will give up any right you may have, now or in the future, to sue Ford based on problems with your PowerShift Transmission (except that you will retain your right to sue for personal injury or damage to property other than the Class Vehicle itself that you claim were caused by defects in the Powershift Transmission). If you decide to exclude yourself from the Settlement, you will not be entitled to the benefits of the Settlement, but you will retain your right to sue Ford individually for problems you have with your PowerShift Transmission.”
