Ford faces lawsuit alleging carbon monoxide leak in police Explorers
The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
Jason Levine, executive director of the center, told Automotive News that Ford’s response to complaints was “insulting to consumers.” Ford has “continued to insist that it’s not an issue and that the problems happening with the Interceptors were solely about after-market adjustments,” Levine said. “The Explorer and Interceptor are essentially the same vehicle, and no one’s putting after-market police gear on their Explorer and yet they’re having the exact same problem.”
The six plaintiffs claimed they suffered headaches, nausea, foggy thinking or flu-like symptoms from driving the vehicles and one “suffered permanent neurological damage which has prevented him from continuing his job as a Washington state patrol trooper.”
