Ottawa, Ontario – The Consumers’ Association of Canada has announced the details of a proposed settlement of 17 class actions that in 2006 alleged that nylon intake manifold gaskets installed in certain GM vehicles were defective. The action covers certain 1995 to 2004 model-year vehicles.
A proposed certification and settlement approval hearing will take place in October in Toronto.
The settlement provides anywhere from a maximum of $50 to $400 per person, an amount equal to the eligible repair expense, depending on when the repair was performed. The settlement provides that fees and disbursements of class counsel across the country are $2,816,000, including taxes, for work up to August 28, 2008, and $131,250 for further work after that date.
