On April 26, 2019, a criminal investigation was launched by the Department of Justice into Ford’s emission certification process. Baron & Budd is now investigating whether Ford used the claims of fuel efficiency to sell its vehicles, and whether Ford deceived consumers by misrepresenting the factors used in its vehicle certification testing to get better results.


Baron & Budd has a dedicated history of protecting the rights of people in the arena of auto safety. The law firm represented vehicle owners in the Volkswagen emission fraud lawsuit. In the Volkswagen lawsuit, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that Volkswagen installed software that allowed vehicles to “cheat” emissions tests. Not only did the EPA allege Volkswagen misled consumers into thinking they were buying vehicles that would not harm the environment, it also alleged the automaker knowingly installed equipment to evade clean air standards. Baron & Budd helped secure a class action settlement in the Volkswagen emission lawsuit of approximately $14 billion.

The law firm also filed the first Takata Airbag Lawsuit, which resulted in a class action settlement of approximately $1.5 billion. It has also represented vehicle owners in the General Motors faulty ignition recall litigation and in litigation surrounding defects with VW, Nissan, BMW and Ford vehicles.


If you bought or leased a 2019 model year Ford Ranger, you may qualify to take legal action. Please contact the national law firm of Baron & Budd to learn more. Baron & Budd has the experience, support staff and resources to seek the most compensation for your damages.
