Seems to me that they are a little late on that. Sure they had a flaw but its a 10+ year old motor. If that's the case then we should all start suing for everything that goes wrong once the vehicle warranty is up......

$500 for an engine block? Is this for a lawnmower? Wow. If I shoot one of those lawyers, will I have to pay $2.12 fine (cost, ID sales tax included, of a slice of Costco pizza) and time served? Sign me up.

How about the 87 billion PMD/FSD that we later 6.5 drivers (94+) have purchased at ~$300 each after the damn thing either: won't start, or goes "Toyota" in the elementary school parking lot. Fukken Stanadyne should be bankrupted and all the executives wire brushed, then dipped in saltwater.

Rubbed with steel wool.

Then dipped in sulfuric acid.

Then healed with hemlock.

Then shot.

Then burned.

Then sent to live in Detroit.

Then sent to live in DC.

. . . Baltimore.

. . . Juarez. The end.

they should all be locked up in a prison full of 300 lb negro faggots with tabasco in a vasoline jar.

however 500 bucks is a joke. the liars/lawyers get rich and the victyims get boo-foo'ed.... :fu:

i have received several calls in the past 24 hrs since the post card arrived. one, an 80 year old man who was forced to park his 99 since the 53 in his rig was a victim had no choice. it happens that his son who had an EARLY 01 with a 53 cracked at 101k and was lucky peterson worked with him a little but cummins, who did not legally have to do a thing worked with him big time.

the old man with the 99 had 125k on his and his is parked until 'something' happens....... :td:

class action.... victims are victimized again and the lawyers get their rocks off and get paid for it.......

as far as the vp issues which suck,,,,,,,,, and the 6.5 pump issues,,,,,,, and even the 6.0 issues......... well,,,,,, the 53 issues are an attrociaty. you buy one of these cummins , at least as far as the engines minus the pump [except for the p7100 12v pumps] and you expect them to be a million mile engine such as the 12v were. this shit is unaceptable...... :wall:

something may get done but if it does the consumer will still be boo-foo'ed :gay2::td:

· If you purchased or leased in the United States, its territories, or possessions a 1998-2001 model year Chrysler Dodge Ram truck, model 2500 or 3500, originally equipped with a Cummins ISB 5.9 liter, diesel engine built using a “pattern 53” engine block, you may be entitled to benefits under a proposed class action settlement.

· Settlement benefits include reimbursement of the cost of repairing or replacing an engine block covered under the settlement (up to, but not exceeding, $500).

I've got a problem with this... Even a used block is going for about $1,500 bucks then you have to pay a mechanic to repmove and rebuild you engine into the new block. What there is like 16 hours of labor to do this and re-install the new block. $500 bucks is not even enough to even buy a block let alone repair it. If I had a 53 block I would got to the court and demand that the y pay for everything block, labor, misc parts, etc!
