2013 – 2019 Ford Escape Fusion Edge MKC & MKZ Coolant Leak and Engine Overheating Defects

On October 19, 2021, U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley of the Eastern District of California issued an order appointing Lieff Cabraser Nashville Managing Partner Mark P. Chalos as Interim Co-Lead Class Counsel in the federal litigation over widespread consumer complaints of engine overheating allegedly caused by an internal engine coolant leak in 1.5L and 2.0L Ford Ecoboost engines in the following vehicles:

2013-2019 Ford Escape
2013-2019 Ford Fusion
2015-2018 Ford Edge
2017-2019 Lincoln MKC
2017-2019 Lincoln MKZ

Consumers claim the engines in their Ford vehicles overheat due to an internal coolant / antifreeze leak that allows coolant to enter into the cylinders of the engine. In many cases, the defect is alleged to have caused total engine failure and to require replacement of the engine block.
