I have registered to try to get a class action lawsuit started against GM for these fuel injector/pump problems. More complaints are needed to get it started. If interested, register at bigclassaction.com. Thanks

Man you have got to be kidding me. Everyone is so f**king sue happy. Everyone is out to make that dollar without having to work for it. There are two things that piss me off more than anything in the world, illegal immigrants who want medical care and to have babies so they can stay here and STUPID MORONIC people who will sue of anything. Grow up and get a life.


I THINK YOU SHOULD BE BANNED FOR POSTING THIS!!!!

Go over to the gm-diesel webpage and get together with those folks that want to help line the lawyers pockets as that is all they are good for. Class action lawsuits just make these trucks more expensive in the long run and won't help $hit. Do you really think ALL of the tens of thousands of DMAX owners post on these pages?? People only post when they have a problem. Do you think because 30 or 40 or whatever people post they have or had injector problems mean it is that way for the rest of us?? All we have is speculation from some people that this is a problem, but we never seem to be able to get the full story.


What is next, a class action lawsuit for the wimpy tie rods??? That seems to be more of a safety issue then the injectors...How 'bout a class action lawsuit against Uni for the "holes" people have found in them...what not every has the problem with tie rods and Uni's?? Well not everyone has problems with the injectors. I am sure I will get flamed, but this is getting out of control. A law had to be passed so people couldn't sue the fast food industry for the fat kids. I agree with GMC, people are getting WAY to sue happy. I'm stepping off my soap box now...

Nothing like pissin' off the people you are gonna need help from. Many of the problems actually stem from dealers that don't know squat about our trucks. I'm not defending GM, (don't even get me started on mirrors), but frivolous lawsuits only cost us more in the long run, i.e. look at the medical profession...Doctors can't practice because malpractice Ins. cost so much. I agree, the injectors are a concern for me too(I have an '01), but I don't want to give a billion dollars to some lawyer and then still have injector problems. No thanks. I think your intentions are good, but a bit misguided.

The only ones who benefit from "class action lawsuits" are the Lawyers, you may get a couple dollars in 5 or 10 years, after its all over, if (and thats a BIG if) your lucky. I was involved in a class action law suit at one time I received $10.00 from a millions of dollar suit. The firm that handled the suit received a few million.... Who won that one?? The poor people didn't.

My experience is that there are only three reasons that any carmaker will extend the warranty on something past the normal amount for all drivers. (or do a recall).


1. The EPA makes them do it (emissions issue).


2. The NHTSA makes them do it (safety issue). (for example, snapping tailgate cable investigation just initiated).


3. Threat of a class action lawsuit.


My wife's Ford Windstart blew a head gasket at 89,950 miles; Luckily I had received a letter from Ford saying that they had extended the warranty to 90k miles the day before it went; I looked around the web and found an article on the web - they responded because they were threatened with a class action lawsuit.


If you want to get GM to do something about the injectors - i.e. extend the warranty period to 200k miles for everyone; Then you have to pursue either #1 or #3. They ain't gonna do it out of the goodness of their hearts...

I've got a solution to lawsuits. Shoot every third lawyer that graduates from law school. That might slow down the number of people entering law school. We have so many lawyers out there that need to work that we constantly have the goofy lawsuits over the silliest things. Bottom line is few other thant the lawyers make any money and in the long run they cost us all.

In theory, the lawsuit idea is great. In reality, it sucks.


If the lawsuit forced GM to provide FREE injectors and labor for the life of the vehicle or something like that, it would be great. However, the end result would probably be something similar to the last one that I was automatically a part of.


I had a Mercedes ML430. The end result was a $30 coupon towards your next service. That's less than 10% off my next small service interval !!! I ended up not even using the certificate since I sold the vehicle (too many problems).

Actually there aren't alot of jobs in law these days. And if you do land one many don't pay very well. A friend graduated with a law degree about 10 years ago and is going back to school.

I haven't had any injector problems but if or when I do the LAST thing I will do is call a lawyer!! Jack, just sell your truck and buy a D, F or T and move on with your life.

I retact my first statement!!! After reading Jacks problems, he has a gripe, but I do not think Class Action is the answer. He needs a good Lawyer, not an Ambulance Chaser!!!!!!
