Only Six More Weeks to Register Claims for Cash Reimbursements Related To

General Motors/Dex-Cool Class Action Settlement




Girard Gibbs LLP is Co-Lead Counsel in Claims Against World’s Largest Automaker



SAN FRANCISCO – The October 27, 2008 deadline to submit claims in connection with a nationwide class action settlement involving General Motors’ Dex-Cool engine coolant is now only six weeks away. Girard Gibbs LLP (www.girardgibbs.com), one of the nation’s leading firms in prosecuting class actions involving consumer fraud, and Shughart Thomson & Kilroy, P.C., specializing in complex business litigation, announced today that qualifying GM vehicle owners or lessees who paid for Dex-Cool related repairs must act quickly to collect cash reimbursements from GM.



Under the settlement, current and former owners and lessees of certain 1995-2004 model year GM vehicles with 3.1-liter, 3.4-liter, 3.8-liter or 4.3-liter engines are eligible to receive reimbursement for Dex-Cool related engine repairs that occurred within seven years or 150,000 miles (whichever is earlier) of original vehicle purchase; these repairs include intake manifold gasket replacements, cooling system flushes and heater core repairs.



Consumers are eligible for up to $400 per repair made within the first five years of the vehicle’s life, up to $100 per repair made in the sixth year, and up to $50 per repair made in the seventh year. Those who paid for multiple covered repairs may be eligible to receive multiple cash reimbursements. In addition, those vehicle owners or lessees who had more expensive repairs as a result of internal coolant leaks are entitled to cash reimbursement from GM of up to $800.



To make a claim, you must have paid for a covered repair by May 30, 2008, and you must submit a claim by October 27, 2008. To find out more information about the settlement, visit www.dexcoolsettlement.com or www.GirardGibbs.com.

In my humble opinion this lawsuit should extend beyond the 7year/150K warrenty. I am going to work on a Cutlass tomorrow that is getting it's 3rd Lower Intake Gasket in the 10 years since it was built. The car only has 12?K on it and for it to need three in this time is not right. Chevy won't help the owner, well let me repharse that they will not do this for free or even a discount, but will more than happy to charge full price. These engines have a problem and so far the problem is not solved.
