GM Dexcool Intake Manifold lawsuit settlement
The problems with certain GM engines and the intake manifold deteriorating prematurely may have a court resolution for you if you have paid anything out of warranty for repairs. I was on the Law firm's mailing list and today received an email, which stated the same as this web page:
We are pleased to announce that we have reached a tentative nationwide settlement with General Motors...
You will have the option to be included in the settlement if you incurred out-of-pocket expenses for any of the following repairs:
1. A replacement of the lower intake gasket, made within 7 years or 150,000 miles of the date of initial delivery for 1995-2003.5 Model Year vehicles with 3.1-liter V6 and 3.4-liter V6 engines, where OEM lower intake manifold gasket was a nylon/silicone gasket, and the vehicle was equipped with Dex-Cool coolant.
2. A coolant sealability repair (including, but not limited to, throttle body gasket, upper intake manifold gasket, lower intake manifold gasket, etc.), made within 7 years or 150,000 miles of the date of initial delivery for 1995-2004 Model Year 3.8-liter V6 engines (RPO L36), where the vehicle was equipped with Dex-Cool coolant.
3. A Dex-Cool sludge repair, made within 7 years or 150,000 miles for 1995-2000 Model Year S/T light trucks and sport utility vehicles with 4.3-liter V6 engines and equipped with Dex-Cool coolant.
The settlement will require you to provide proof that you owned or leased the vehicle at the time of the repair and that you paid for an included repair. If you do not have a receipt, ask the auto repair shop that did the work to provide you with one.
The terms of the proposed settlement are confidential while we work to finalize the settlement papers for court approval. If the court preliminarily approves the settlement, the parties will publish, mail, and email a notice that describes the terms of the settlement and your legal rights. We hope to obtain court approval and get notice out by February 2008. At that time, we will be able to answer inquiries regarding the specifics of the settlement and how to file a claim. In the meantime, you should retain all receipts you have for repairs to your vehicle

This is great news. There is a similar class action going on in Canada, the website is »www.gmcanadianclassaction.ca/news.html . I haven't checked it in a while, but looks like there was some news posted late last month which indicates the earliest we will hear on anything new is sometime in February 2008. Hopefully this decision will get the Canadian settlement done soon.
I paid $1115 to replace the lower intake manifold gasket on my 2000 Impala - what amounted to be half of my share of the inheritance money from my grandfather's estate. Not what I wanted to do with the money, but maybe I'll get a couple of bucks of it back.
Because of this debacle, I now refuse to buy GM.

The motion was scheduled for a hearing before Justice Cullity of the Ontario Superior Court in December 2007. To allow discussions between the parties, however, counsel have agreed to postpone the motion to the week of February 18, 2008. If the discussions are productive the litigation may be resolved; if not, the hearing will proceed.
