The judge ruled any claims against Ford for damages to Mustangs before the 2005 model year are false because Ford could not have had any knowledge that galvanic corrosion of aluminum hoods would occur in the 2000-04 models. Those cars did not have aluminum hoods but had hoods made of sheet molded compound.
A federal judge says that a class action suit claiming corrosion on aluminum body panels has reduced the value of millions of cars and trucks made by Ford should proceed with depositions being taken this year.
Court documents don't go into much detail, but the plaintiffs say their claims in this matter pending against Ford Motor Co. (Defendant) have been resolved to the satisfaction of Plaintiffs and Defendant.
A Ford Explorer hood rust recall allegedly should have been ordered long ago, or so says a plaintiff who filed a proposed class action lawsuit about aluminum hoods.
