Ford gets dinged again for Bridgestone debacle, lawyers make out like bandits
The discounts are worth $500 if applied to a new Explorer, and $300 if applied to any other Ford, Lincoln or Mercury product. The discounts would cost the Dearborn-based automaker about $400 million if every plaintiff went out and bought a brand new Explorer within the next year, though we bet Ford's counting on that scenario being highly unlikely. The lawyers that fought the class-action lawsuit, however, will receive $25 million from Ford for their trouble. We bet none of them will go out and buy a new Explorer with that money.
