ACCC takes on Ford over Powershift

Wheels (Australia) - - Redlind -

The Aus­tralian Com­pe­ti­tion and Con­sumer Com­mis­sion (ACCC) last month launched le­gal pro­ceed­ings against Ford Aus­tralia over the Powershift trans­mis­sion scan­dal, al­leg­ing Ford “en­gaged in un­con­scionable and mislead­ing or de­cep­tive con­duct, and made false or mislead­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tions in its re­sponse to cus­tomer com­plaints”. Ford has re­futed the ACCC’S al­le­ga­tions and has vowed to chal­lenge them. “As each of these is­sues has been iden­ti­fied, the Ford team has in­ves­ti­gated and worked with cus­tomers to im­ple­ment so­lu­tions,” Ford said in a press state­ment.
