Ford Defective Diesel Engine Class Action Lawsuit Settlement

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

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’s design, the marketing of the vehicles, and Ford’s 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”).

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?
