Ford Escape (model years 2020-2021) driver doors may fail due to defective spot welds during manufacturing. Sauder Schelkopf is conducting a class action investigation on the issue.
Sauder Schelkopf is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against Ford related to allegations that the spot welds in Ford Escape driver doors may crack and break (model years 2020-2021). It has been alleged that owners of the 2020-2021 Ford Escape often hear a popping sound when opening the driver side door, followed by issues closing and opening the door. It has been further alleged that Ford requires owners to pay out of pocket for the necessary structural repairs if they are outside warranty coverage, and that repairs are typically between $2,000 and $3,000. According to a document issued by Ford, replacement of the door assembly and door check arm is the appropriate repair for the issue.
