Ford customer demands Expedition, Lincoln Aviator engine fire risk

Three owners of the 2021 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator 2021 vehicles have filed a national class action lawsuit against Ford Motor Co., claiming the Dearborn automaker failed to disclose to customers a defect that caused a spontaneous fire in the engine compartment and no repairs were made.

Ford has reported to federal safety regulators 16 under-the-hood fires and one burn, the lawsuit says.

These vehicles, according to the complaint filed Tuesday in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan “that are damaged are dangerous and prone to fire, including while driving, when parked but (started), and when parked and (turned off) Later, even though Ford knows or should have known the fire risk before launching the vehicle, Ford did nothing to warn owners and renters until recently.”
