The issues related to the 6.0L Power Stroke Diesel engine have long been in the news. Consumers are enraged over the poor quality of the diesel engine in Super Duty Trucks and Excursions.
Manufactured by Navistar, these defective engines have been used in Ford trucks from 2003 to 2007.
Ford owners have been arguing that the 6.0L diesel engine is faulty since it first came out. The engine continued to be manufacturer for another 4 years, at a rate of 275,000 diesel pickup trucks yearly. During this time, Ford advertised the high quality of the engine, leading to the Super Duty Truck becoming one of the best selling Ford vehicles.
Problems with the diesel engine are said to include damaged injectors, necessary turbocharger replacements, decreased resale value, and frequent breakdowns.
A class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Ford Super Duty Truck or Excursion owners. Handling the suit is a firm known as Strom Law LLC is located in Columbia, South Carolina. Strom Law is reviewing claims by Ford owners who purchased a vehicle with the 6.0L diesel engine. Attorneys at Strom invite Ford owners to contact them for a free legal consultation.
Ford owners have also created a Facebook Page to help unite supporters of the cause.
Joining the Lawsuit: We found a law firm called Goldwater that was gathering information for the lawsuit. Over the past year[updated January 29th, 2013], it seems that the Goldwater lawyer has fizzled, because the website has been taken down.
We have been told that PISCITELLI LAW FIRM is now doing the class action law suit. Their information is below. We were told that currently 18 people are apart of the class action law suit.
PISCITELLI LAW FIRM is no longer taking on clients. They do not have any additional information on open cases against Ford.
Strom Law firm that was mentioned above might still be taking on cases. Their contact information is:
