Thezi Mabuza, the NCC`s current commissioner, confirmed on Sunday that the settlement agreement was „limited to 56 Ford Kuga owners whose cars caught fire and, in addition, to any other right to quantifiable financial loss.” Earlier this year, the Commission announced that it was submitting documents to the National Consumer Court and instructed its lawyers to prepare documents. During this process, the FMCSA addressed the Commission, which began negotiations. The CPA authorises the Commission to negotiate and conclude commitments and to award contracts. The incumbent Commissioner stated, „I can confirm that the Commission and the FMCSA have entered into a settlement agreement that will be submitted to the court and ordered in court.” The fine and settlement agreement took into account the millions of R335s Ford spent on three recalls of the model. The National Consumer Commission („NCC”) has entered into a settlement agreement with the Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa (FMCSA) by imposing a fine of R35M pursuant to Section 112 of the Consumer Protection Act. That`s what happened after Ford admitted to violating the Consumer Protection Act (CPA). This follows complaints about the Kuga 1.6L Eco-Boost, which burned either during the ride or while parking. The Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa has agreed to pay a fine of R35 million and offer three compensation options to the 56 Owners of EcoBoost Ford Kuga whose vehicles caught fire, in agreement with the National Consumer Commission (NCC). .
These consumers can take legal action against Ford with respect to the CPA through an alternative dispute resolution service under the law or justify damages in court. Mabuza said the NCC understood that the argument of claims for damages in court could be costly and so it was agreed that attorney Terry Motau would provide the alternative dispute resolution services.
