Ford Defective Diesel Engine Class Action Lawsuit Settlement

This is a settlement for the Ford Motor Co. and Magna International lawsuit.

- by

Detroit, MI: A proposed settlement has been reached in a Ford defective engine class action lawsuit pending against Ford Motor Company.

You may be a member of a proposed Settlement Class and entitled to reimbursement for certain engine-related repair costs and deductibles if you:

1. purchased or leased a model year 2003_2007 non-ambulance Ford vehicle in the United States equipped with a 6.0-liter PowerStroke diesel engine; and
2. the vehicle received one or more repairs covered by Ford_s New Vehicle Limited Warranty during its first five years in service or 100,000 miles, whichever came first, to a fuel injector; the EGR valve; the EGR cooler; the oil cooler; or the turbocharger; and
3. you had not, as of November 1, 2012, filed (and not voluntarily dismissed without prejudice) an individual lawsuit based on that engine;

If the Court approves the proposed Settlement, Ford will provide Class Members a means of obtaining reimbursement for certain engine-related repair costs and deductibles. All persons (or entities) who agree to accept these benefits will be barred from pursuing individual lawsuits against Ford and others based on the 6.0-liter engines in these vehicles.

Background: On April 13, 2011, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation created MDL No. 2223, In re: Navistar 6.0L Diesel Engine Products Liability Litigation, and transferred seven lawsuits involving similar claims to the Court for pretrial proceedings. Thirty-two additional lawsuits have since been transferred to the Court. The plaintiffs contend that the 6.0-liter diesel engine installed primarily in 2003 - 2007 heavy-duty Ford trucks and vans contains defects that result in poor performance and expensive repair bills. Plaintiffs assert a variety of legal claims against Ford based on the engine' design, the marketing of the vehicles, and Ford' repair practices. Plaintiffs seek to pursue their lawsuits (the "Litigation") as a class action on behalf of other owners and lessees of model year 2003_2007 non-ambulance Ford vehicles equipped with a 6.0 liter diesel engine (the "Class").

I have a 2013 Ford Taurus SHO and have experienced similar issues to those described in the case above. From the very beginning, my car would stop while I was driving (sometimes at 90 mph). The car would accelerate on its own, die and not start at all (having to be towed) and it's had several recalls. Now in it's 4th year, we're being told that the car is experiencing low engine problems and needs to be replaced (a whopping $9K.). We've already paid out thousands to repair our vehicle and feel that we've been duped by Ford. I'd love to find out what my options are in getting my money back from Ford Motor Company in a product liability suit or something similar.

Would love to know if there is a class action lawsuit regarding the 6.0 diesel engine. My 2004 F250 had 143,348 and I had to replace the motor ($12,893.16) have had several more repairs done to it for a total of $18,032.55. That is just from 2015-2017. Ford knew there were problems, they should have recalled every vehicle and replaced all motors. If there has been a class action lawsuit filed, I have never been notified and my mailing address hasn't changed.

We purchased a 2006 F350 along with an expensive extended warranty which expired at 60,000 miles. The engine totally blew at 61,800 miles. Unrepairable damage. Having a new engine put in at a cost of over $10,000. What kind of a diesel engine only gets 61,800 miles on it; especially one that has it's oil changed and serviced along with a new fuel filter replaced every 5000 miles? Oil changes cost $400. When we pressured the dealer, they just threw their hands up and said "too bad". Ford and Navistar knew that they had a problem and continued to put this engine in these trucks. This is criminal behavior! It looks like the payout on this class action suit is around $800 per owner......big deal, when a new engine is costing us over $10,000! Now we own two Ford trucks and just waiting for the next one to blow. Ford should make this right with their customers!

I purchased this 2005 F250 18,months ago with 40k on it.In July of 2017 with 70K the high pressure oil pump went out and i was out $4000.00 to have it repaired. four weeks later the thing started idling rough and blowing black smoke. had it towed into a shop and they tell me the engine is blown and it will cost me $16,000 to replace it plus a $2700.00 for there service plus towing.
Now I don't know what to do with it .
. What a load of crap .I had just paid this thing off and was planning to pull my boat to Montana for a fishing trip.
From what I have read Ford knew that this motor was SHIT and continued to sell it. to non informed consumers.
I pray that all of who have suffered financially and emotionally are well compensated.

I bought a 2007 limo bus in 2008 which was brand new. The bus has a 6.0 liter power stroke diesel motor. I have had all kinds of problems. Bus breaking down several times. Right now the bus has 40,065
miles on it. I have a limo service and I had to take it out of service in December 2016. I can't even sell it, because everyone knows about the motor. The bus smokes real bad. I had it repaired last year in the fall
2016 and spent over $800.00 on the repair, but it still did not last long. The bus only did a very few trips, then it started smoking again and broke down in December. I have been in the limousine business for 30 years and I have always bought Fords and Lincolns, hundreds of them. in the past 30 years.
I just found out about the bad motor about 7 months ago. None of the Ford dealers would tells us anything. I just can't believe Ford would do this to their long time customers. I even had a $500,000 Ford credit set up by Ford at one time. I will never buy a Ford product again.

I have over $50,000 in out of pocket repairs, plus what was covered under the warranty on my 2005 F450 and I have every receipt. Would love to join and help get some of the money back for everyone who is in a similar situation.

I was notified, did what was asked, and received nothing. Same house, same address. My records have not changed since I bought the truck and received nothing. Would appreciate the money owed. If there is anything that can be done would be appreciated. I have spent a lot of money over the years nursing this 2006 F250.

I own a f 450 2008, ford has surely let a lot of people down ,my truck has 68000 miles and dealer maintained, complete motor failure at this mileage and ford will do nothing. this is a night mare truck provided by a non responsible company, ford is well aware of the problems but still will not take responsibility , I was told by a rep. that not using this truck all the time may cause failure in the motor, what a joke, must be fords bull crap form for their employees to recite. unlike vw who have gone far and wide to keep their customers happy, Ford should study vw and at least learn how to be descent to people. beware Ford motor company

I bought a 2008 F350 with 6.4 diesel. Regular maintenance. All recalls performed. Not abused or modified. At most stress, pulled a 3 horse aluminum trailer. At 90,000 bearing has spun with no prior warning, no cross fluid contamination and oil healthy, requiring motor replacement. Now I see this is a common problem, even admitted by the service department in 3 dealerships. I would like to be included if there is any recourse. This is ridiculous that a motor cannot last 100,000 miles with required maintenance. AND that I am out $10,000 of value for buying their junk.

How can I find out if it is still possible to collect under this class action lawsuit? The lawyers listed here won't tell me anything. Have all issues with this diesel engine been corrected to everyone's satisfaction?

looked at a 6.0 f350 yesterday at a used car lot, im convinced that the 6.0 engine is not the way to go unless you want to spend big bucks on repairs. i need a heavier duty truck so i can carry a camper. i have a f150 with ecoboost now. wish ford would have put the ecoboost engine in a f250 truck, good combo, would have gvw and power.

I have a 2006 Ford F350 King Ranch diesel 6l that I purchased in 2007 with 24,000 miles. Since then I have spent a lot of money on various things such as the EGR, thermostat, power steering pump, injector, etc. Currently it has a cracked head and is parked in front of my house. I have tried to contact the attorney on this page but they say they cannot represent me. They won't say why. I am afraid their may be a statue of limitations on the class action suit. Can anyone help me?

bought a 2007 f-250 WITH A 6.0 DIESEL in 2008 with 11,000 miles on it.
just turned over 40,000 miles when the engine blew.
Had excellent care, used very little and always garage kept. looking at a 16,500 repair bill. I feel like ford should stand good for the entire bill.

We purchased our Ford 2004 F-250 in 2009. It was in beautiful condition and our dream truck for our 5th wheel and retirement. So far we had to have engine work because a bolt fell out of the engine ($2,000+); the engine caught fire and had to be replaced ($12,200); it blew the high pressure oil pump ($2,200+); then over heated and had to have parts replaced ($980); then failed because of the over-heating and now needs another new engine. We have spent all of our retirement funds on this truck with nothing to show for it.

I bought my 2005 F-250 Lariat in May of 2008. It had approximately 65,000 kilometres on it .At 88,000 the EGR cooler went and I had it replaced under warranty . No problem. Then at 124,000km the EGR cooler went again causing a hydraulic lock in the engine and I had to replace the engine. The bill for that was in excess of $14,000.00. Ford would have no part of compensating for even part of the cost.After months of trying to get some sort of good will from Ford I had to bight the bullet. What a shame to have to go through an ordeal like this after almost a year of having the truck of my dreams in the shop.I also had an extended warranty which would have no part of it either because EGR is considered part of the emission system. Very disappointed

My 2011 Ford F250 power stroke engine went out Sunday September 18th, 2016 t has 1000000 miles. We were told there was a cylinder misfire, damaged glow plug circuit. The cost of the repair is $11300.00 our extended warranty ran out the 10th of August 2016. This seems to be a common problem with this model. If this was a known problem then the truck should have been recalled.

We have a 2003 F250 which received all service at the Ford dealer. No one ever informed us of the defective engine. We are liw mileage users but at 100,000 miles this year, engine has failed with thousands wanted for repairs. Correspondence with Ford provided no assistance due to out of warranty. Very concerning that they received compensation for defective engine but consumers are left paying for repairs themselves. Have owned Fords for years but ni more. Paid over $40,000 for this truck in 2003. Never another Ford. It is in excellent shape bidy wise but having to trade it in on a new vehicle. Ford should have repaired or replaced the vehicle with a prorated cost for new non-defective model. Very bad business model for consumer!

I bought a 2006 F350 diesel new from a local dealership and have had issues for years, even though I checked for recalls etc. I have countless records of repairs prior to the 100,000 mile limit (I also purchased extended warranty), and I was never informed about the lawsuit. Now I am faced with replacing the EGR again! What is the dealerships role in this?! I saw the deadline for filing was 2013, what is my recourse if any?
