Ford will have ten days upon receiving your Notice of Intent to Arbitrate to respond. Ford may offer to provide a buyback directly. (Absent unusual circumstances, you should accept the buyback offer.) After ten days, if you do not receive a buyback offer (or reject the offer), you can proceed to the arbitration program, which is akin to a mini-trial. The program is administered by CAP-Motors, an independent entity vetted by us and Ford, and a neutral arbitrator will review your claims and make a determination as to whether you qualify for a buyback.
As a rule of thumb, we suggest that all current and former owner/lessees of a 2011-2014 Ford Focus or Fiesta who qualify for a buyback submit a notice of intent to arbitrate by November 4, 2020 (which requires sending a Notice of Intent to Arbitrate by October 25, 2020). Current or former owners/lessees of 2015-2016 Class Vehicles should submit a Notice of Intent to Arbitrate at least 10 days before your deadline to file your request to arbitrate, which is 6 years of the date of delivery to the first retail owner. Whether to file for the buyback program should be reviewed first with class counsel.

The House approved the creation of a cash-for-clunkers program with the 298 to 119 passage of the CARS Act (\"Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save Act\", H.R. 1550). The House bill, sponsored by Rep. Betty Sutton (D-Ohio), allowed consumers to trade-in vehicles with a combined fuel economy of 18 or less for new, more efficient vehicles. In the Senate, Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan), and Sam Brownback (R-Kansas) sponsored a bill very similar to the House's.
To ensure that vehicles traded-in under \"cash for clunkers\" will not be resold by dealers, the program outlines a procedure for destructively disabling the engine (and thus also precluding the possibility that any mechanical engine components might be salvaged to be used in the repair of any other vehicles): the motor oil is drained and replaced with a sodium silicate solution, then the engine is started and run until the solution, becoming glass-like when heated, causes engine internal bearings to abrade and ultimately seize. In addition, the salvage or scrap facility which acquires the vehicle cannot sell the engine, cylinder heads or a \"rolling chassis\" from the scrap vehicle. The salvage or scrap facility can sell any other component (including the transmission and axles) from the scrap vehicle separately and may dismantle and warehouse the parts. The \"hull\" of the vehicle must be crushed within 180 days. Cut off or unbolted front-end assemblies may be saved and sold at a later date, as well as the \"top and back\" of pickup cabs.
The lawsuit represents nearly 2 million people who own or formerly owned a 2011-2016 Ford Fiesta or 2012-2016 Ford Focus. In addition to the $30 million in cash reimbursement, there will be an easier process for people to get compensated and a buyback program for defective vehicles, according to the Associated Press.
This article focused on some issues you should expect when buying the 2014 and 2012 Ford Focuses. Still, apart from these models, the Focus has amassed a reputation for being the prototypical do-it-all car, and rightfully so.
Over the last year, as the high-profile case has been argued in court, Ford opened up a voluntary buyback program. The company disclosed in court documents in 2019 that Ford spent $47 million buying back 2,666 vehicles.
Nearly 2 million owners and former owners stand to be affected by the settlement, which also includes a minimum $30 million in cash payments from Ford to customers that are separate from the buyback program. At least 1.5 million of the vehicles remain on the road today, according to U.S. vehicle registration data.
