Hilliard Martinez Gonzales LLP: Florida Truck Owners Sue Over ‘Time Bomb’ In Engine

November 06, 2018

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Nov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Bob Hilliard, who recently filed a class action for Texas diesel truck owners, has now filed a 2nd class action lawsuit—this time on behalf of Florida diesel truck owners against the German-based company Bosch as well as US truck manufacturers for defective CP4 fuel injection pumps that disintegrate and destroy the truck's engine. Hilliard states, "Florida truck owners were cheated out of what they thought they were getting. Just like Texas truck owners. Without a healthy working CP4 your truck is slowly dying, just like heart failure in a person, sooner or later the heart stops and the body dies. We have clients who are seeing damage and failure early in the life of the truck. The reason? Every single CP4 is starved of lubrication and results in metal rubbing against metal in a highly pressurized environment, without lubrication--as a result the CP4 starts to shed tiny pieces of metal shards almost immediately, sometimes as early as mile one. By a hundred thousand miles, all truck owners see the costly results. Their engines self-destruct, the CP4 disintegrates and sends thousands of metal shards into the fuel injection system and every part of the engine—resulting in $8,000-$20,000 worth of repairs.
