USA: class action for disappointed Shelby Mustang owners

Consumer law firm Hagens Berman is putting together a class action for disappointed customers for Ford's Shelby GT350 Mustang (2016 model), which far from being the exciting track car that Ford advertised is said to suffer from overheating problems. Sustained high-speed driving (which is what a track car is supposed to be for) is more than the transmission and diff can cope with, and the car goes into "limp mode" to prevent damage. Limping is, I guess, the antithesis of what you buy a track car for.

The problem can also arise when the cars are driven on the road. It stems, the law firm contends, from the absence of coolers for those parts of the drive train. Base and Tech models are affected.

Hagens Berman's page about the claim is here.
