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”).

Bought 04 f350 dually 6.0. Egr delete. Head bolts had to be replaced ( arp studs) now fuel tank is delaminating. Ending up putting thousands into this truck to keep it running. Things happen , however ford should make it right with upgraded parts. Been a ford fan my whole life. Wont own another after this.

bought a 2006 F350 which has 580,000km and $185,000 in maintenance and repairs - the latest long block seems ok the first 50,000 km - first and last diesel I ever buy - very unreliable transportation until new engine installed.

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.

2004 Ford 1 Tonne Dually Diesel. I had to replace the motor to the tune of $14747.43 in September 2010. I replaced the injectors in June 2010 for $1418.73. 2014 I had to replace all 8 injectors again to the tune of $3959.40.
#5 & #7 Fuel Injectors failed in December 2015 and the cost for that was $1275.00.

I would like to know if I qualify!!!

I had a 2007 6.0 litre diesel ford,got 140,000 kms on it.Then the injector tip broke off and scared the motor.I took the truck to the ford dealer ship and they said warranty doesn't cover it.I phoned ford of Canada too on the matter and they said that it wasn't cover under warranty.They(Ford) wanted $18000.00 for installing a new motor.I said forget it.
I haven't drove a ford since.

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?
