The Blue Oval can't catch a break these days. Either that or they're extremely negligent. Plaintiffs in Canada certainly are leaning on the negligent side. IA class action suit has been filed by a Canadian law firm stating that between 300,000-400,000 Ford vehicles sold in Canada may have defective door latches that cause the doors to open in side impact and rollover crashes. While that certainly is a serious problem Ford says they investigated the problem and are sure the door latches are up to code. Vehicles involved include 1997-2000 Ford F-150 and F-250 Super Light Duty pickups and Expedition SUV, and the Lincoln Blackwood pickup and Navigator SUV. An American lawsuit is also expected. Start lining up to join the class action suit if you feel wronged. And expect a long legal battle.
