CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Ford and Navistar on behalf of individuals who currently own or lease or have previously owned or leased a Ford vehicle equipped with Navistar’s 6.0 Litre diesel engine, (commonly referred to as the Power Stroke V8 Turbo diesel engine) for the model years 2003 through 2007.
The class action involves allegations made by the plaintiffs of serious and pervasive design defects with the engines powering the Ford vehicles which were designed and manufactured by Navistar that are alleged by the plaintiffs to render the engines and vehicles themselves unmerchantable and unsuitable for use.
Such problems are alleged to include:
- Loss of engine power
- Blown head gasket
- Warped/disfigured head bolts
- Oil cooler failure
- Engine Gas Recirculation (EGR) cooler failure
- Coolant entering the engine’s ventilation system
The trucks involved are:
• 2003-2007 Ford F250 Super Duty
• 2003-2007 Ford F350 Super Duty
• 2003-2007 Ford Excursion
During the warranty period (60,000 kilometres or 3 years and 100,000 kilometres or 5 years), the plaintiffs alleged Ford would refuse to authorize necessary major engine repairs or engine replacements, instead only authorizing cheaper services (like injector replacements) knowing that they would merely serve as a temporary measure until the warranty expired.
Ford has denied the claims and allegations made in the proceedings and denied any liability. The settlement does not constitute an admission of liability by Ford, or evidence against Ford, or evidence of the truth of any of the allegations made in the proceedings.
