A class-action lawsuit
was filed against Ford for allegedly falsely advertising its 2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang. The complaint, which was originally filed in 2017 and amended in 2018, alleges that the company markets the Mustang as being “Track-Ready” (i.e., suitable for driving on race tracks) when, according to plaintiffs, the vehicle is not fit to drive on race tracks because the car overheats prematurely causing it to go into Limp Mode at drastically reduced speed and power. (Tershakovec et al v. Ford Motor Co.
, Case No. 17-cv-21087, S. D. FL.)
