Built Ford tough? Not according to a recent lawsuit.
Last week, 20 Ford Motor Co. customers filed suit against the automaker, claiming that the company has been selling defective vehicles for a decade. The suit says that more than 30 Ford model vehicles built between 2002 and 2010 equipped with electronic throttle control systems did not have the proper reliable safety measures in place, including a brake override system. As a result, plaintiffs claim, the vehicles had a higher risk of unintended acceleration.
