EPAS Lawsuit Shot Down

Power steering is one of those things you don’t think about until it’s gone. And owners of Ford cars with electronic power assisted steering (EPAS) are thinking about it all the damn time, if you catch my drift.

But it’s been a tough year for an EPAS lawsuit that claimed the system is defective. After a promising start, it was denied class-action certification and then dismissed by a judge entirely.

Womp, womp.

The lawsuit didn’t even cover all the models or years affected by this problem. And now that it’s going away, the complaints seem to be picking up as more cars exit their warranty period (because life is fun like that).

And oh, by the way, an out-of-warranty repair costs about $2,000.
