Consumer Commission could fine Ford 10% of turnover over flaming Kugas
'This is about a critical safety matter, with people's lives potentially in danger. We want to get to the bottom of this'
Carmaker Ford is being investigated by the National Consumer Commission for allegedly contravening the National Consumer Act — and could be fined 10% of its an nual turnover. The company — and its dealerships — will face a Consumer Tribunal hearing that could levy a fine that experts say could be in the billions. The company's revenue from its Middle East and Africa region was $4-billion in 2015.
