Sounds like Ford covering up a blunder... IMHO the problem should have been fixed in 1995/1996 when the first composite coolant crossover was used. I cannot believe it took Ford 7-8 years to release the revised intake design!

Glock will give you a new receiver if it ever cracks on you. Maybe Ford should subcontract the intake production to Glock... LEOs can now have Glock parts in their car as well as in their sidearm

Does anybody know how to look up the sell date from the VIN, or any other way for that matter? I figure I could do a carfax report to find when it was first registered. I was hoping to do it for free. I spent a while searching google with no luck.

Figures, somebody didn't like the settlement offer, and filed and appeal. My guess is that it was somebdoy who paid more than the $735 out of pocket to get their manifold replaced, and wasn't satified with just getting $735 back. Or it could have been someone who just missed the 7 year cutoff, and wanted it replaced anyway. Who knows, just means it could be a looooooooooong time before we hear anything now.

On October 7, 2005 at 10:00 a.m., the United States District Court held a final fairness hearing on the Proposed Settlement. At the hearing, the Court determined that the Settlement is fair, adequate and reasonable, and entered a final order approving the Settlement. However, one class member has filed an appeal challenging the judgment. The Settlement will not become final, and the reimbursement program will not begin, until after the class member's appeal is resolved. We can not predict when the appeal will be resolved. Please check the website periodically for information about the effective date of the Settlement.

I think that Ford could make this whole thing go away quickly if they agree to reimburse all customers who suffered the loss, regardless of when it happened. Then no one would have a valid complaint and this ordeal wouldn't have to drag on any longer. Just a thought.

What, and succumb to honesty, integrity, and common sense? The nerve...

it can go ahead and drag on another year. fine with me.

i would rather the final say so be more towards fairness towards the customers then a hasty wash your hands, give everyone a check and screw the people who also should have been considered

ford should average what the 4.6L engines typical lifespan is and cover the warranty for a good portion of it. not a mere 7 piddly years.

my lawnmower will last longer then this
