Ford can pursue lawsuit after Explorers wound up in China

Automotive News reports that Ford has been allowed by a court in California to pursue a fleet customer which it alleges fraudulently purchased vehicles for use in the US, then exported them to China. Its fraud secured for it an $823,000 discount. The defendant's president apparently admitted exporting some or all the cars (Explorers) to China, but argues that the export prohibition in the sale agreement is an illegal restraint of trade. Good luck with that one, but Ford might be heading for problems with the Chinese authorities, which are already showing a lot of interest in the price of imported cars. Indeed, as we reported not long ago, parallel imports are being actively encouraged by the Chinese government.
