Ford to stand trial for company's hybrid commericals
Judge Orders Ford to Stand Trial for Limited Number of Hybrid Fraud Claims
July 26, 2017
A New York judge tossed most of the false advertising claims in a recent class-action suit against Ford, but retained those claims that related to the company’s “Hybrid Games” commercials.
The dismissals in the suit pertaining to Ford’s Fusion and C-Max hybrid vehicles were granted on the basis that Ford’s advertisements contained the phrase “actual mileage may vary.” But Judge Kenneth Karas allowed that the “Hybrid Games” advertisements contained a potentially misleading statement about the vehicles’ fuel efficiency. The ad series, the judge ruled, referred directly to “real-world driving conditions.”
Of the 18 cases submitted in the class action suit, only four now remain.
The case is ongoing in New York court.
