Three Mustang Mach-E owners have filed a federal lawsuit against Ford Motor Company, claiming the automaker was aware of a design flaw that causes its electric cars to lose power while moving. Even though these owners were made aware of the recall for the Mach-E, the complaint claims that it is unclear whether Ford has a “real solution to the battery/overheating issue.”

According to the lawsuit, Ford should have informed the plaintiffs and other customers about the flaws at the time of purchase since they might have thought twice about completing the transaction.

Aashish Desai of the Desai Law Firm in Costa Mesa, California, is working with the owners and believes that there is a massive case against Ford, especially since heavy recalls are not enough. The lawsuit was filed a few days ago on July 1 in U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of California.

Customers are seeking compensation from Ford for its “wrongful conduct” that resulted in their vehicles’ diminished value, and they also want their vehicles completely fixed.

Desai estimates the overall value of the lawsuit at $5 million, not counting interest or fees, and seeks to take the case class action.
