----------------------------------------

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Navistar, Inc., Navistar Canada Inc., and Navistar International, Inc. on behalf of all residents in Canada who own or lease a vehicle equipped with a 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 Navistar MaxxForce Advanced EGR diesel engine.

The class action involves the serious and pervasive design defect with the MaxxForce Advanced EGR diesel engine powering the Navistar vehicles causing them to not function as required and as represented on a consistent and reliable basis, even after repeated warranty repairs and replacements.

These repeated warranty repairs and replacements failed to repair or correct the Advanced EGRs' defects resulting in damages, including diminished value of the vehicles powered by MaxxForce Engines, the costs to re-power the vehicles with diesel engines that are compliant with the EPA Emission Standards and out of pocket expenses resulting from breakdowns.

Examples of the engine failures caused by the defect include:

- Repeated instances of check engine lights illuminating;
- Engine derating;
- Exhaust leaks;
- Cooling failures;
- Bearing and belt failures;
- EGR sensor failure;
- EGR valve failure;
- EGR cooler failure;
- EGR system failure;
- A/C blower and compressor failures;
- Hose/connector clogging and failure;
- DPF clogging;
- Cooling system failure; and
- Other issues that prevented the vehicles from functioning as warranted and represented.

The class action lawsuit identifies the group of affected persons as:
