2005 Lincoln Town Car
Possibly looking to follow in the footsteps of the $1.1 billion class-action settlement paid by Toyota for unintended acceleration claims, a group of 20 consumers represented by New York-based law firm Grant & Eisenhofer has filed suit against Ford, according to a Reuters report. The plaintiffs allege the automaker failed to install sufficient safety systems in its vehicles equipped with electronic throttles, including the 2004-2010 F-Series trucks, the 2005-2009 Lincoln Town Car, and the 2002-2005 Mercury Cougar.

Summary
