Join the Ford Emissions claim

Have you purchased or leased a diesel Ford vehicle with emissions-cheating software?

If so, Join the Claim to get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Ford is accused of selling cars fitted with emissions-reducing devices. These so-called “defeat devices” manipulated emissions tests, making it seem like affected vehicles were more environmentally friendly than they actually were. Ford tried to argue that the software used in its vehicles was not illegal, but the European Court of Justice disagreed.

People who drove the affected Ford vehicles may have suffered inflated fuel and maintenance costs. The affected cars are also likely to be worth less than the drivers paid for them.

Hundreds of thousands of Ford owners may be entitled to compensation, with potential claims amounting to thousands of pounds each.

Latest updates on the Ford emissions scandal

  • 2015

    The global ‘dieselgate’ scandal started when US investigators discovered Volkswagen Group had been selling cars with illegal emissions-cheating software. British researchers then found that other car manufacturers, including Ford, were emitting toxic fumes way above the legal limits.

  • 2020

    Ford remained adamant that it did not use illegal defeat devices in its vehicles. However, Ford did use ‘thermal window’ software. To ensure the “safe operation of the vehicle”, such software switches off a car’s emissions purification system in extreme temperatures or altitudes.

    In 2020, the European Court of Justice ruled that ‘thermal window’ software did constitute a defeat device and was only permissible when protecting against sudden and extraordinary damage.

  • 2023

    The UK High Court ruled that Ford would face legal action over its role in the emissions scandal when it granted a Group Litigation Order (GLO).

    A GLO permits people who have experienced a common issue to have their cases managed collectively.

We’ll provide more updates on the Ford emissions scandal as they occur.

Ford emissions FAQs

Ford is facing legal action for fitting several of its diesel models with emissions-reducing software. As well as the potential impact on the environment and human health, this scandal resulted in significant financial losses to owners of these vehicles, due to:

  • high fuel bills
  • excessive maintenance costs
  • cars that were worth less than the drivers paid for them.

Ford diesel vehicles manufactured between 2009 and 2020 could be affected by this scandal.

Ford drivers may have experienced higher fuel bills and maintenance costs than was promised. The affected cars are likely to be worth less than drivers paid for them. We believe these drivers deserve compensation for the possible harm and injustice experienced.

If you have owned or leased a diesel Ford vehicle manufactured between 2009 and 2020, you could have a NO-WIN, NO- FEE compensation claim.
