Kansas Receiving $300,000 From Ford Settlement

Dec 23, 2002 | Wichita Business Journal

Kansas will receive $300,000 as part of a settlement with Ford Motor Co. involving alleged deceptive trade practices.

The money comes from a $51.5 million settlement with all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands involving alleged deceptive trade practices connected with the advertising and sales of Ford SUVs.

Mark Ohlemeier, a spokesman for Kansas Attorney General Carla Stovall, said Monday that the settlement includes $30 million from Ford to create a nationwide public service consumer education campaign on SUV safety.

The lawsuit alleged that Ford failed to disclose a known safety risk concerning tire failures with certain Firestone ATX and Wilderness AT tires that came as standard equipment on some Ford SUVs.

It also alleged that Ford's advertising misled consumers about the safe use of Ford SUVs and that the company's advertising falsely implied that certain after-market tires sold through Ford's "Around the Wheel" program were the same tires as those that came equipped on Ford SUVs.

Ford denied any wrongdoing. Ford has spent about $2 billion to replace tires in the 53 jurisdictions.
