Ford Settles Class Action Over Navistar Diesels

This could be interesting....

http://www.rvbusiness.com/2013/10/ford- ... r-diesels/

Text copied and pasted below:

Ford Motor Co. has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit over claims that it sold defective diesel engines in its 2003-07 Super Duty pickups and E-series vans.
Automotive News reported that the now discontinued diesel 6-liter V-8, manufactured by Ford’s former diesel engine supplier, Navistar International, had myriad problems with the fuel system, turbochargers and other major components.
According to the settlement, any U.S. purchaser and lessee of any 2003-07 Ford vehicle equipped with a 6-liter Power Stroke diesel engine is covered if the vehicle’s exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) cooler and EGR valve, oil cooler, fuel injectors, or turbocharger was repaired, replaced or adjusted prior to 135,000 miles or six years.
Each component is given a reimbursement limit. In addition, according to the settlement, if a class member paid a $100 deductible more than once for repairs under the five-year/100,000-mile engine warranty, Ford will reimburse $50 each for the second through fifth deductible paid, up to a limit of $200 for four deductible payments.
The settlement resolves dozens of class-action lawsuits against the company and entitles owners to be able to claim between $50 and $825 in reimbursement for post-warranty repairs to their engine and engine components.

Wow... Really surprised to see zero responses and no comments.

As I read it - it's reimbursement for money spent to repair the ill-fated 6.0...

Thought it might be helpful - I guess not.

The settlement covers '03-'07s.

Mine's an '08. So I should be fine.

Re: Ford Settles Class Action Over Navistar Diesels

For me it's the hoops I'll have to jump through. All of my repairs were mainly paid for by Ford. Sure I was out a few hundred here and there. Now if they want to refund my 2,200 dollar extended warranty that would be another story. I doubt they will refund my wire harness issue I just had...or will they? The repair was not done by Ford and the engine warranty is long gone.

I'll give it a try. Be nice to get something for the failed high-pressure oil line, and oil cooler. Both may squeak in under the six-year limit.

Had my repairs done by a non-Ford repair shop. No reimbursement for me. Guess I was supposed to go back to the company that created the situation in the first place and have them replace the bad parts with more bad parts?

What about the low mileage units out there that are yet to break? Guess I am out of luck also..
