In October 2019, the law firms of Siskinds LLP, Sotos LLP, Mackenzie Lake Lawyers LLP and Robins Appleby LLP (collectively “Class Counsel”) commenced a proposed class proceeding in British Columbia alleging that Ford Motor Company and Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited (collectively, “Ford”) misrepresented the fuel efficiency of the following vehicles:

  • the 2019 and 2020 model year Ford Ranger; and
  • the 2018, 2019, and 2020 model year Ford F-150.

Class Counsel are of the opinion that the proposed Ford Fuel Economy class proceeding is no longer viable, and the representative plaintiff no longer wishes to pursue the claim against Ford. On that basis, counsel filed a Consent Order with the Supreme Court of British Columbia to dismiss the proceedings without costs to any party. The Order was granted by the Court on January 19, 2024. A copy of the Order can be viewed by clicking here.

Under class proceedings legislation, any limitation period for bringing a claim regarding the subject matter of the class proceeding is paused for the duration of the class proceeding.

The discontinuance of the class proceedings regarding this matter means the limitation period has recommenced. The limitation period for bringing a claim recommenced on January 19, 2024. On the expiry of the limitation period, your right to sue may be extinguished. If you wish to pursue a court claim regarding Ford fuel economy, you should commence your claim before the applicable limitation period expires. Limitation periods vary across Canada. As such, you should seek legal advice from a local lawyer.
