Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of owners and lessees of Ford Escape vehicles. These vehicles may suffer from a design defect in which the throttle body causes the vehicles to either stall in motion or suddenly surge forward when accelerating from a stop. This may pose a serious safety risk to vehicle occupants, other motorists and pedestrians. As the problem was initially intermittent, the drivers continued to operate their vehicles in this condition, eventually progressing to the point of keeping one foot on the brake while stopped and the other on the gas pedal to keep the vehicle running. Some owners and lessees may have been required to undergo costly repairs of the throttle body and related items due to this potential design defect.
