Sunrise Ford Settlement
$175,000 in Fines Paid by Sunrise Ford
On January 20, 2005 Sunrise Ford began installing a non-exempted aftermarket device known as the “Fuel Maximizer” into new 2005 through 2007 model year light- and medium-duty motor vehicles. This was done before the equitable or legal title of the vehicles had been transferred to an ultimate purchaser. By installing the non-exempted aftermarket part, Sunrise Ford transformed each motor vehicle from a California certified to a non-California certified configuration. Sunrise Ford settled the violations in April 2009 for $175,000.
