A class-action lawsuit was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Miami, Florida against the Ford Motor Co. by a small group of disgruntled Shelby GT350 Mustang owners who say their 2016 high-performance cars overheat and lose power on the track.
The iconic limited-edition vehicles were allegedly marketed to consumers who bought them for their enhanced performance needed for track enthusiasts.
The 71-page lawsuit argues that their vehicles are equipped with faulty transmissions and rear differentials that may overheat in just 15 minutes and precluding owners from using them on racetracks.
Ford reportedly fixed the same issue for owners of the 2017 vehicles, but not for the 2016 consumers and now four owners of the $57,000 2016 Shelby GT350 Mustangs have banned together in the class-action claim. The Florida law firm representing the owners’ claims the damages could reach $228 million.
Meanwhile as many as 4,000 of these high-performance vehicles may be affected by the same problems and could qualify under the class-action lawsuit or a separate California Lemon Law claim or federal Lemon lawsuit.
