What is the Ford Explorer Class Action About? 

The Ford Explorer Class Action alleges that model year 2016 and 2017 Ford Explorers in the United States may have a defect causing exhaust fumes to enter the passenger compartment. A class action lawsuit was filed against Ford, titled Suresh Persad, Daniel G. Wright, and Robert S. Drummond v. Ford Motor Company, and it is currently pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. While Ford denies wrongdoing, they have agreed to settle the lawsuit. Owners or lessees of these vehicles may be eligible for benefits under the settlement, including reimbursement for certain post-warranty repair costs. The class includes all entities and individuals in the United States who currently or previously owned or leased one of these Ford Explorers, excluding Police Interceptor Utility models.

How Much Money Can I Get? 

The Ford Explorer Class Action Settlement provides various compensation options depending on the specific circumstances of your vehicle and repair costs:

  1. Up to $400 reimbursement for the inspection and sealing of gaps in the passenger compartment.
