After a series of PowerShift class-actions and years of complaints, a lawsuit settlement is on the horizon. The settlement, once approved by a federal judge, will include about 1.5 million model year 2011-2016 Ford Fiesta and 2012-2016 Ford Focus cars with automatic transmissions that caused Ford to issue two customer satisfaction programs.

The full settlement details are complex, but will provide owners with options such as cash payments, reimbursements, or credits towards the purchase of a new car with a arbitration-monitored buyback from Ford.

Replacement clutches should come with a 2-year warranty.

The case being settled was filed in California back in 2015. Similar lawsuits were filed in Illinois and Texas as recently as earlier this month.
