Ford Brake Failures

Ford F-150, Expedition, and Lincoln Navigator Pickup Truck Brake Failure Litigation

Note: Reports now indicate the same brake failure defect is appearing in Ford Expedition 2013-2020 models and Lincoln Navigator 2013-2020 models

Lieff Cabraser represents Ford truck owners in litigation over reports that hundreds of 2013-2018 Ford F-150 pickup trucks are experiencing sudden brake failures. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received over 200 complaints from Ford F-150 drivers who say the trucks’ brakes suddenly fail without warning during driving. Drivers say the brake pedals suddenly push all the way to the floor without stopping the vehicles, and many have described the problem as a complete and total brake failure that can happen repeatedly.

Here are all the Ford models currently under investigation for similar brake defects:

  • Ford F-150 2013-2018
  • Ford Expedition 2013-2020
  • Lincoln Navigator 2013-2020

Drivers say the F-150 brakes can suffer total failure after as few as 26,000 miles on the road; this is the issue most-complained about by 2013-2018 F-150 drivers, and repairs can cost as much as $1,800. NHTSA received complaints from F-150 owners and drivers in 38 U.S. states.

We have successfully litigated and settled hundreds of class action lawsuits in federal and state courts, including dozens of cases requiring manufacturers to remedy dangerous vehicle safety defects as well as extending warranties, and refunding to consumers the costs of repairing or replacing the defective components. Working with co-counsel, we have achieved judgments and settlements that have recovered more than $4.7 billion in these cases.
