I got word last wednesday that the judge had preliminarily signed off on the settlement agreement. This means that those letters/emails advising people of the class action settlement will be going out over the next few months. I also believe that this means the final approval of the settlement won't happen for another 4 months.
DISCAIMER: I am not a lawyer. This is my best understanding of the proposed settlement. I have this information because we were intimately involved with the class action lawsuit. Please do not ask me for advice. Any advice I have, I will post in this thread.
Vehicles covered: Pretty much all 2003-2007 non-ambulance Ford vehicles sold or leased in the USA and equipped with a 6.0-liter PowerStroke diesel engine that received one or more Warranty Repairs to a fuel injector; the EGR valve; the EGR cooler; the oil cooler; and/or the turbocharger.
What this means to you: Basically, if you had any of these items replaced during the warranty period, and then had to replace them again out of your own pocket-book, outside of the factory warranty period, but within 6 years or 135,000 miles, you probably will qualify for a partial refund of the costs incurred as follows;
EGR cooler replacement $475
Oil cooler replacement $525
Both EGR cooler and oil cooler $825
Fuel Injectors; 1 $375, 2 $500, 3 $625, 4 $750, 5 $875, 6 $1000, 7 $1125, 8 $1250
Advice: Have/save all receipts
