Sonja R. v. Ford Motor Company

Los Angeles County

We represented Sonja R. with respect to the problems she encountered after leasing a 2015 Ford Edge.  She had high hopes that the vehicle would give her years of reliable service, but was disappointed when as early as 5,000 miles after leasing the Edge she already started experiencing serious engine issues.  Her vehicle would stall, jolt, and shudder when accelerating. Sonja tried to resolve the issues herself with Ford, but her efforts were rebuffed. After our attorneys stepped in to assist, Sonja was able to achieve a substantial settlement against Ford Motor Company that included the return of all of her lease payments, and a civil penalty equal to roughly two times what she paid to lease the vehicle.  Of course, our friends in Detroit also paid for all of her attorney’s fees and costs.
