A: You can certainly add any legitimate claim to a lawsuit. However, even in Small Claims Court, you will find that Ford or the dealership will be represented by an attorney. You, therefore will be at a disadvantage. You MAY be able to find an attorney to represent you on a Flat fee basis, but not necessarily. Consider your options carefully. Good luck.
