Proposed Class Action Settlement - Ford's Defective Intake Manifolds

According to the Notice of Proposed Settlement Of Class Action and
Settlement Fairness Hearing received by probably millions of people recently, Ford has agreed to reimburse Class Members who have previously paid to replace a composite intake manifold on a Class Vehicle. The catch is that the replacement must have occurred within the first seven years of vehicle operation.Ē (View at notice at
It has been noted on several websites that the manifolds tend to fail at around 100,000+ miles. While, fleet cars and polices vehicles could reach this mileage within seven years, many insurers estimate that the average driverís yearly mileage is around 12,000 miles. Itís evident then that many of the Ford manifolds might not fail until perhaps more than nine years after the initial operation of the vehicle. Our manifold failed after 7 years and 6 months. How convenient for Ford!
Many people have received this notice, but may not be aware that they may not able to benefit from this proposed settlement. You have to read the notice very carefully to fully understand the proposed settlement. I am sure that many who receive the notice will believe that they are covered by the proposed settlement simply because their cars fall within the class years. Please pass this information on so that if anyone wishes to opt out and pursue other action they will have the opportunity to do this before the September 27, 2005 deadline. If they do not opt out they will be precluded from bringing a claim against Ford.
