Bosch CP4 High-Pressure Fuel Injection Pump Failure Lawsuit?

Bosch CP4 high-pressure fuel injection pumps are used in newer and more fuel-efficient diesel engines installed on vehicles made by Ford, General Motors, Chevrolet, and Dodge. The CP4 pump was introduced as a cost-saving measure, but instead of saving consumers money the pump reportedly fails prematurely. This can result in costly repairs.

When a CP4 pump fails, it may not only destroy the injectors, but it can leave metal shavings in your fuel lines — which would require you to replace the entire system — and can even crack the gear and throw it through the engine’s front timing, according to Diesel Tech Magazine.

The worst part about this issue is that auto dealerships are generally not covering this expensive defect under warranties. Most warranties exclude fuel contamination, and once a CP4 injector pump fails the metal shrapnel it sends throughout the engine and fuel system is considered contamination. Fixing this can cost consumers between $10,000 to $15,000.


Own a Ford F-150?

Have you had to replace your vehicle’s lug nuts due to warping or swelling?

According to the class-action lawsuit, a defect in lug nut design on Ford cars and trucks is causing owners to pay for replacements when their vehicle’s lug nuts expand and deform. The defect renders the lug nuts useless and unable to fit into a lug nut wrench. As a result, owners cannot change their tires, a crucial problem during an emergency or flat tire. Drivers also report that when getting their Ford serviced, mechanics often cannot remove the tires due to the swollen lug nuts. This leaves consumers to pay for replacement lug nuts due to Ford’s defect.

A class-action was initiated by the law firm, Hagens Berman LLC , who believes that consumers have the right to replacement costs of lug nuts that contain a defect  and to reimbursement for towing and repair costs associated with the inability to remove the defective lug nuts. The class-action contents that consumers shouldn’t have to suffer for Ford’s errors in choosing materials that at best cost consumers more in repairs, and at worst lead to an emergency situation, rendering them stranded with no way to remove a faulty tire.

Chevy Silverado Class Action Lawsuit  

Do/Did You Own A 2011-2016 Chevy Silverado Duramax Diesel 2500HD or 3500HD?

General Motors has intentionally sold Chevy Silverado Duramax Diesel 2500HD and 3500HD vehicles with emissions-cheating devices that mask the vehicle’s release of illegally high levels of NOx. The use of these “defeat devices” means consumers paid a $5,000 premium for a diesel car that is, in fact, emitting illegal levels of deadly NOx emissions.

Affected Silverado Duramax diesels exceed by two to five-fold the Federal and California NOx emissions limits and cost an estimated $5,000 more than their gasoline equivalent.

Hagens Berman believes that consumers have the right to reimbursement for the premium price they paid for what they thought was a powerful, efficient and emissions-compliant option.

Simply put, thousands of consumers did not receive what they paid for, and purchased their Silverado under what we believe is false information.
