Ford Faces Defective Engine Class Action Lawsuit

Los Angeles, CA: A defective automotive class action lawsuit has been filed against Ford Motor Co, alleging the truck manufacturer knowingly sold vehicles with defective 6.0-liter diesel engines in 2002.

According to the lawsuit:

Ford knew about issues regarding the 6.0L Engine prior to the engine' launch.
The concerns remained throughout Ford' production and sale of the 6.0L Engine.
Ford did not have a "definitive repair action"for the issues.
Most, if not all of these concerns had a "common cause."
Ford ultimately adopted a band-aid approach to reduce its "warranty spend,"without addressing the "common causes"of the problems.

The Ford engine class action lawsuit states that the Ford 6.0L Engines had unprecedented repair rates, accounted for approximately 80% of all of Ford' warranty spending on engines, and as a result, caused Ford to assemble a team of some 70 engineers to help Ford' supplier in identifying and resolving problems.

"Ultimately, Ford sued its engine supplier, Navistar, for $493 million for what it termed 'exceptionally high repair rates and warranty costs due to quality problems attributable to Navistar,' including 'design flaws,'"the class action lawsuit states.

The lawsuit seeks to represent all Californiaresidents and entities who currently own or lease (or previously owned or leased) a vehicle with a Ford 6.0L diesel engine. The lawsuit seeks the following:

Out-of-pocket damages for engine repair/service
Deductibles paid when repairs were covered by warranty
Towing charges incurred from having incapacitated vehicles towed in for repair
Lost profits from the inability to use vehicles when the engine failed, the vehicle being stored at a Ford dealership awaiting repair, or the vehicle being insufficiently reliable to be put into service
Cost to overhaul or replace the defective 6.0L Engines
Diminution in value of the vehicles due to the defect
Decreased trade-in or selling value

I had a Ford Fiesta 2012 with transmission defects in the clutches that were repaired on 3 separate occasions & then a module replaced, about a month after that, I was in a store, the car was in park & the keys were in my hand, & the car rolled on its own out of the parking lot & broadsides a plumbing truck, which totaled my car.

I purchased a 2004 F250 super duty Lariat. The first thing it blew turbo 1st day on the hwy. It has had numerous egr's,head gaskets injectors and many more items. The company refused to take truck back. I ordered this truck with all bells and whistles leather, back seat had been a problem ever since i got it. It now sits in drive way needing work again. Injectors. I really thought this would be my last truck so i got everything i could. I will never buy another Ford anything.

I purchase a new 2010 Ford F250 and at 142,000 miles I had a catastrophic engine failure. The engine is a V8 Non Diesel. Since purchasing my vehicle from Ford I've taken meticulous care of my vehicle and have the records to prove it. This engine failure left me only one alternative and that was purchase a new engine. Is there anyone out there that has had the same problem ?

my 2006 ford 6.0 diesel I leased, in 2009 I bought out the lease because I was over to many miles .I thought this is ok because I want to own my truck when I retire . I am still paying on it . in 2014 I put out 1300.00 because of the egr system, this year 2016 some pin gave way in the oil system ground up by the pump gears and metal shaving was sent thru the entire engine . I had to purchase a new engine at the cost of 17000.00 I am 65 years old that money was going to help me when I could no longer work , I have no pension . I need help to get some of this money back.

In the last 4 years I have put around 9 thousand dollars in my 2006 F-250 6.0 diesel truck. I'm serious.. I will not buy another Ford.. I can't believe they get away with this.. I am very disappointed..

Bought a 2006 f250 6.0 turbo diesel in may of 2014 from a used dealership, I have truck in shop now for the third time for the same problem as the first and have more problems with engine as well than first time. I am now hitting 10,000 in repair bills and haven't owned truck for little over a year, the truck is only worth 18,000 and is not yet paid off..... any help would be forever appreciated this has greatly crippled me financially and i don't know what to do.

We bought our Ford F250 6.0L new in 2003 from dealer. It has only 115,000 miles. Just after the 100,000 warrenty we had two different large repairs. Just in the last month we had to have it towed and had more work, $1000, then in again, turbo, $1100, and now, at the garage again, not running, repair would need to be a new engine installed 14,000 or more just for the engine. A rebuild on this engine only a little less and Mechanic, who has done many of these, does not trust it.
This truck was to last us and be our last truck. It is used daily for work and we have horses that we need to be able to haul as well (California wildfires). we are not in a position to write this off and purchase another truck. Any recourse at this point?
