Navistar Lawsuit Investigation Involving Maxxforce EGR Diesel Engines
Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating class action claims raised in a Navistar lawsuit that the company’s Maxxforce EGR diesel engine may have been sold to consumers in a defective and unreasonably dangerous condition in model years 2008-2013.
Recent claims coming to the attention of Audet & Partners, LLP suggest that Navistar trucks sold in these model years were equipped with the Maxxforce EGR diesel engine that may have contributed to a dangerous tendency for these models to break down, leading to unreasonably dangerous conditions for drivers of the vehicles in addition to bystanders. Further alleged by those purchasing Navistar trucks with the Maxxforce EGR engine is that the vehicles experienced repeated failures within the warranty period of the vehicles. These failures allegedly have led to significant expenses incurred by truck owners and lessees.
Moreover, some owners and/or lessees have alleged that upon bringing these alleged defects to the attention of Navistar, the company did little more than replace the Maxxforce engines with other engine models that may have been equally defective or even more prone to failure. Information coming to the attention of Audet & Partners, LLP suggest that the following models may be involved in the Navistar lawsuit:
- • International Prostar;
- • International Lonestar;
- • International Paystar;
- • International Workstar; and
- • International Loadstar which often serve heavy use vehicles including garbage trucks and airplane refueling trucks.
