I swear this place gets bigger all the time. I've never noticed an Articles section. I really should get out of this sub-forum more. If the mods see fit to kill this dupe, so be it.

The end result will be more scrutiny of weight loss programs and more difficulty in post factory programming abilities.
No one wins this crap, not even the environment since everything done decreases real world mileage and hence in the big picture creates more net emissions.
Liberals don't use logic, only emotions. Hence most of our problems in the World.
I'm sure you're right. "Let us sue Ford for you. Look what happened to VW. They got to drive those vehicles for quite a while and
in the end owners had them bought back for crazy good money. Trust us."
I don't understand the mind set of tattle tailing to the gov't. All these over reaches are mind blowingly un-American, and on top of that, citizens run
to the gov't to snitch. We should be applauding efforts to skirt any overbearing regulations.
Right again. but muh environment! but muh feels!
While my truck is nowhere near affected by this, our VW TDI was. Hopefully this doesn't gain any traction because it was a mess for us. We thought that 48 mpg from a diesel was great, but enviros let us know we were wrong by approving a 30 mpg power robbing program fix.
Shame. Did y'all do the update or stick to the original tune?
Let the facts play out but right off the bat this seems more about BOSCH than Ford. Seems pretty simple to disprove, roll out 10 random PowerStrokes and test them.
There's some plausible deniability for Ford, but I bet they will try to say Ford should be aware of what its' contractors are doing with parts installed on their motors.
This is a junk lawsuit. The lawsuit specifically says real world emissions. These trucks are not tested for the EPA under real world. They have a specific test in a controlled environment. I bet just about every car in "real world" is higher levels then the controlled environment.
****, it even says Ford's programming is fine and it isn't a cheat device like VW.
I really despise attorneys.
It may be junk, but that won't stop them. Remember when the Brady campaign talked some of the victim's from the Aurora shooting into suing Lucky Gunner for selling guns and ammo to that orange haired fruit?
There's a law that specifically
protects against that. Didn't matter, they sued, lost, and the Brady campaign disappeared and left the family holding the bag for a few $100k worth of legal bills.
Lawyers. Throw it all at the wall, we'll see what sticks.
