Duramax class action suit

"General Motors Co. has been hit with a class-action lawsuit alleging it equipped 2011-2016 GMC and Chevrolet diesel trucks with 6.6-liter Duramax engines that are not compatible with American diesel fuel."

What surprises me is that I had associated this issue with the Powerstroke more than the Duramax. The base issue seems to be common knowledge here.

They(the plaintiffs) are not going to win that lawsuit. While I agree that GM should have added a filtered lift pump on their trucks and are very stupid for not doing so, the basis of the plaintiff's argument is just not valid because many other makes (like my BMW) used the CP4 without these issues. If they want to sue someone, then they should sue the EPA for forcing a stricter NOx requirements than needed which is why GM had to move to the CP4 pump in the first place.

I rule this case in favor of the Plaintiff.

Everyone who purchased one of the listed vehicles gets a coupon good for 5% off a 25% overpriced oil change at Mr Goodwrench.

Exploding saddle gas tanks on GM pickups lawsuit. I received a $500 COOPIN to buy any GM vehicle. Funny part was my truck was a Diesel. I did use the COOPIN to help my daughter buy a car. Also used my racked up points on my GM card at that time.

While I'm not a proponent of frivolous lawsuits. I do think GM , FOrd and others should be held accountable for the fragile fuel systems designed into these trucks.
The owner should not be caught/liable with a 10k-12K bill when the fuel pump grenades.
Simply put the systems should have been designed with more protection and more tolerance. This issue is not the consumer's fault. Getting a $12K fuel system bill should not be part of the ownership experience. These are known issues and not due to the negligence of the owners. Ford needs to be held accountable as well.
Unfortunately class action is the only way to get the manufactures attention.
Quite frankly the class action process needs to be applied to a few known issues within the RV industry as well

Its not the car companies its the government that requires removal of certain additives. They did the same several years back when they removed/lowered the zinc in motor oils and cam shafts were being wiped out mostly in older vehicle.
