Ford Navistar Diesel Engine Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
Claim Forms for the Ford diesel engine class action settlement are now available at the Settlement Administrator website. If you purchased or leased a 2003-2007 Ford vehicle equipped with a 6.0-liter PowerStroke diesel engine, you may be eligible to claim between $50 and $825 from the class action settlement.
The Ford diesel engine settlement resolves dozens of class action lawsuits, consolidated as In re: Navistar 6.0L Diesel Engine Products Liability Litigation, that claim the PowerStroke diesel engines installed in heavy-duty Ford trucks and vans are defective and plagued with problems.
Ford denies the allegations but agreed to reimburse consumers through a class action settlement fund to resolve the litigation.
The settlement covers 2003-2007 non-ambulance Ford vehicles sold or leased in the United States and equipped with a 6.0-liter PowerStroke diesel engine. To be eligible to participate in the class action settlement, your vehicle must have received a repair, replacement, or adjustment during Ford’s 5-year/100,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty to one of the following engine components:
- Exhaust Gas Recirculation (“EGR”) Cooler
- Oil Cooler
- Fuel Injector(s)
- EGR Valve
Class Members that submit a valid Claim Form will receive one of the following benefits if the class action lawsuit settlement is approved:
Reimbursement for Post-Warranty Repairs to Certain Engine Components. If the Class Vehicle required repair to the EGR cooler, oil cooler, EGR valve, turbocharger, or a fuel injector after the original five-year/100,000-mile warranty expired -- but before six years or 135,000 miles (whichever comes first) -- Ford will reimburse the Settlement Class Member repair expenses up to the limits specified below, provided the Class Vehicle previously received a repair to that same component that was covered by Ford’s original warranty.
Reimbursement of Deductibles. If a Settlement 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 only way to receive a reimbursement through the Ford diesel engine class action settlement is to submit a valid Claim Form postmarked no later than December 31, 2013. Claim Forms can be downloaded online at www.DieselSettlement.com.
The case is In re: Navistar Diesel Engine Products Liability Litigation, Case No. 11-cv-2496, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.
