When majority of people think of a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, they think about a track-ready beast that creates 526 horse power, takes no prisoners and screams America whenever you burn rubber. However a group of owners and their lawyers have conflict with the first part of that thought. As per the law firms Hagens Berman and Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, the track-ready Mustangs have a major overheating issue.
A lawsuit submitted on March 22, 2017 at the U.S. District Court for the southern district of Florida mentioned the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is at danger of having its transmission and rear differential overheat in just 15 minutes. Because the car was advertised as a track-ready muscle cars and truck with years of racing heritage engrained into its DNA, both law office are submitting a class action lawsuit versus Ford for fraud and violation of service warranty claims. The complainants are reporting Ford refused to repair their cars and advised them to look for repairs by themselves.
Steve Berman, managing partner at Hagens Berman stated they believe that Ford caused purchasers with its ‘track-ready’ marketing, when in fact it knew that this defect would eventually disallow these Mustangs from ever being the hotrod customers paid for.
Owners paid at least $59,970 for this track-ready Mustang. The base Mustang opts for $25,185, roughly half of the Shelby GT350’s cost.
