Owners and lessees of certain 2010 – 2018 Ford vehicles have reported damage to their electrical and engine wiring caused by rodents. Around 2010, Ford started using a soy-based “eco-friendly” coating on its car wiring. However, rodents are reportedly attracted to this wiring and frequently chew through it, resulting in hundreds of dollars in repairs for drivers who are denied warranty coverage.
This problem results in costly repairs and poses a safety hazard. Specifically, owners and lessees have reported that coolant lines have been eaten through, causing their vehicles to smoke while driving, and displays have malfunctioned, including the fuel gauge, anti-lock brakes, four-wheel drive, and the check engine light. Other systems have also reportedly failed, including the headlights, warning sensors, and the air conditioner. This faulty wiring coating may also diminish a car’s resale value.
Levi & Korsinsky, LLP is investigating potential claims against Ford for marketing and selling vehicles equipped with allegedly defective wiring that may cause safety issues and expensive repairs.
If you purchased or leased a Ford vehicle and you have had issues with animals damaging your electrical or engine wiring, please contact Rosemary M. Rivas or Quentin A. Roberts for more information.
