This is a proposed consumer class action against Ford Motor Company and Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited (collectively “Ford”). This class action alleges that the EcoBoost Engine in certain Ford and Lincoln vehicles were designed by Ford with a dangerous defect, thereby potentially causing a lethal hazard.
Specifically, it is alleged that the EcoBoost Engine in certain model year 2013-2019 Ford and Lincoln vehicles (“Class Vehicles”) have an inherent design defect which makes them predisposed to leak coolant, including allowing the coolant to seep into the engine cylinder, which causes overheating and cylinder head cracking, and can cause the engine to misfire, suddenly stall, or even catch fire while driving.
The alleged affected Class Vehicles are the:
- 2013-2019 Ford Escape,
- 2013-2019 Ford Fusion;
- 2014-2015 Ford Fiesta ST;
- 2013-2015 Ford Transit Connect;
- 2015-2018 Ford Edge;
- 2016-2019 Lincoln MKC; and
- 2016-2019 Lincoln MKZ
which contained EcoBoost Engines.

- All persons or entities anywhere in Canada apart from the Province of Québec, who are or were past owners or lessees of the Class Vehicles listed above, and their estates, executors, successors or assigns.
