#137 of 139 How to recover costs? Lawsuit?
Apr 13, 2001 (1:48 pm)
My 95 Neon Sport had head gasket failure years ago, but not long after my standard warranty expired. Just my luck.
Has anybody who had head gasket work done after warranty been able to get any money back from Chrysler? What is the procedure?
Also, I saw only one mention on this forum about a potential class action law suit. If it exists, does anybody have details?

You can try, but it's generally best to seek reimbursement up front, or soon after the repair is done.
Class-action lawsuits are meaningless to the individual consumer - they invariably result in miniscule payouts to member of the class (and big-league ones to the attorneys who represent the class).

I had this problem on my 97 a few months ago, at around 75,000 miles(in other words, well after warranty). Dealer replaced it for $100 and acknowledged that it was a fairly routine problem. Just make sure you take the problem to a reputable dealer and let them know you are aware of this.
