Mustang Intake Manifold

I took my car in for an oil change and I just found out that my 2000 Mustang
Gt with 70,000 miles on it has a cracked intake manifold. Research shows
that this is a common problem and that Ford has been doing everything that
they can to not have a recall. The original one was made of "composite"
material (plastic?). The Dealer wants $600.00 just for the manifold itself
which I am told is made of cast iron.

If you own a Mustang or Ford product with a 4.6 liter engine be forewarned.
A $ 2000.00 problem lies ahead. I have emailed an attorney about a class
action lawsuit.

Re: Mustang Intake Manifold

Just go to advanced auto parts, they have a cast iron manifold thats $150.
Not like you have a warranty to worry about anymore, why stick with OEM
parts.

Re: Mustang Intake Manifold

My Ford dealer charged me $140 for the revised intake manifold. Labor was
only $200. $2k problem? You're getting rammed in the ass if you are serious.

Class action lawsuit judgement scenerio #1: You lose. Your attorney
$wins$.

Class action lawsuit judgement scenerio #2: You win. Your attorney
$wins$.
Everybody in your lawsuit gets a few bucks off on their next visit to
Ford to
have some major work done.

Class action lawsuit judgement scenerio #3: You win. Your attorney
$wins$.
Ford mails you a coupon for a rebate on your next Ford vehicle
purchase. Why
not money to fix your 2000 Mustang? Because the year is now 2015 and
you've long sold/wrecked/forgotten about your 2000 Mustang.

Moral: The only people who really win in a class action lawsuit are the
lawyers for both sides. As some previous posters said, there are
factory and aftermarket fixes for this, well under the $2K that you
stated.
Besides, does everything on your human body work as well as it did when
the year was 2000? Who are you gonna sue for that???

Sounds like you need to be a little more thorough with your research.

They've had a safety recall out for the intake manifolds of 2000 Mustang
GTs since late 2000. See <http://www.alldata.com/TSB/19/001949C9.html>.
