Ford the Latest Automaker Accused of Cheating

Another lawsuit over diesel emissions was filed Wednesday in federal court in Detroit. "Ford not only cheated emissions in these trucks, but cheated consumers as well, playing up promises it couldn't keep".

Ford Motor Co. installed software that enabled its F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks to cheat at passing federal emissions tests, according to a lawsuit by truck owners filed on Wednesday, a claim the No. 2 USA automaker described as "baseless". BMW, Mercedes-Benz, General Motors and Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles have all faced similar litigation over diesel emissions.

"The vehicle's own on-board diagnostic software indicates emission control system to be operating as Ford intended, even though its real world performance grossly exceeds the standard", attorney Steve Berman of Hagens Berman said in the complaint.

"All Ford vehicles, including those with diesel engines, comply with all US EPA and CARB emissions regulations", Daniel Barbosa, a spokesman for Ford, said in an emailed statement cited by Bloomberg.

"The lawsuit said the trucks at issue represent a profitable and key part of the Dearborn automaker's offerings, noting that it charges about "$8,400 for diesel-equipped vehicles over comparable gasoline Super Duty trucks". How much more? According to a report from the Detroit Free Press, the suit alleges 500,000 Super Duty trucks manufactured from 2011 through 2017 can emit up to 50 times more pollutants than allowed.

Bosch is also accused of developing software that enabled Ford to adjust fuel levels, exhaust gas re-circulation, air pressure and urea injection rates while being tested for emissions by regulators including the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board.

The director said of Gal, "She knew the great importance of this character and what she could mean to the world if well done". The Israeli actress appeared in reprisals of the Fast and Furious, but none of them were banned in Lebanon.

In a statement Wednesday, Bosch said allegations against the company "remain the subject of investigations and civil litigation" and it takes allegations of diesel software manipulation "very seriously".

Bosch noted the "sensitive legal nature of these matters" in its response to a request for comment. The auto show's media preview starts Sunday.
