What happens to those who have cars covered under the settlement (1997/2000 MY vehicles) that HAVE NOT had their manifold crack yet?

Just hope that they crack within the extended warranty period.

So I guess the correct route would be to be dishonest and say I replaced mine on both affected cars. I am assuming the '97 manifold could go any day now, on a good day you can smell a faint hint of coolant.

Interesting info found onlin at flamingford.com

"Another reason that we oppose the settlement is that we have reason to believe that Ford treated at least one of its fleet customers far better than what it now offers to its civilian customers. On August 27, 2002, we had a conversation with Sgt. Larry Jowdy, who was at that time the supervisor of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's fleet department. Jowdy told us that he had approximately 2000 Crown Victorias, saw the Ford factory representative two to three times a week, and that they had replaced their plastic manifolds before they failed (the equivalent of a "recall"). This is not the 'equal treatment' that we believe the court has in mind."

Are we really getting the same deal as fleet owners ?????

thats the trouble with the internet... you can post anything ...

if i had a customer who bought 2,000 cars from me... lets see.... i see that as about a $38,000,000 annual customer at 19K per vehicle minimum.... more like $40million plus... I would paint those cars easter egg blue for free if he threatened me...

that is just totally BS ...

a seven year warranty is more than a fair settlement... ford is doing much better on this than GM who does not even acknowledge its an issue

LOL .. great , I have 4 months left ... Unless they consider the Month as well ,,, In that case I have up until Sept. 06 ... How long do the plastic intakes usually last before cracking?




Mine cracked at 146,000 miles, thankfully as I was pulling into my parking lot.

Well, it's the 7th of October, and the site wasn't updated with any settlement information. Has anyone heard anything about the law suit today, or if they made a settlement?

UPDATE:

according to the lawsuit website the settlement was approved at the October 7th hearing, BUT it does not become final until 30 days afterward to allow time for appeals. They advise to check the site after November 9th for more details.

So, I guess they give Ford 30 days to renig on the deal, but it doesn't sound like they will...it just draws the process out a bit further.
