If you thought your automaker would never steer you wrong - think again. Ford Motor Company issued a recall recently for 1.4 million vehicles due to a risk of steering wheel detachment, according to the Wall Street Journal. The recall affects the 2014-2018 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ midsize cars in North America. If you own a vehicle covered in this recall, it is important to understand your rights as a consumer and how to replace the defective steering wheel.

FCA has a severe problem with the 2015 and 2016 Ram EcoDiesel 1500 trucks, and it goes way beyond the current class action for emissions cheating. My clients have been into dealerships with their Ram EcoDiesel 1500 trucks in limp mode or severe loss of power, check engine light on and the service electronic throttle control error message. This would be bad enough as a one-time issue, but these trucks have been in the shop in 3, 4 or more times for the exact same problem.
The devastating floods from Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida are expected to result in approximately 500,000 cars declared a total loss due to flood damage. A vehicle declared a total loss by insurance should be disclosed to any potential buyer as a salvage title due to flood damage. The problem is that many cars with a salvage title will be taken to other states and, through creative paperwork or contacts in the DMV, the salvage brand won't appear on the title after the car is transferred out of state. Another way that a flood vehicle can end up for sale without a salvage title is if the insurance company sells the vehicle directly without taking title, or if a car dealership sells a flooded car directly because it didn't have insurance for flooded cars.
