Ford will pay at least $30 million in a proposed settlement over a class-action lawsuit related to failing transmissions in its Fiesta and Focus vehicles.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the lawsuit represents nearly 2 million owners and former owners of the cars.

The newspaper cited court documents.

Ford did not respond to a request for comment.

The case was filed in 2012.

The cars involved had bad dual-clutch transmissions.

Final approval for the settlement is expected during a hearing on Feb. 28.
