You can always opt out of the class and sue GM yourself - but there's no free lunch. Either you fight GM individually and hire counsel to represent you (and you probably will recover more) or you simply participate in the class (and get less). Courts are becoming more sensitive to the issue of attorneys fees to class counsel and have rejected some recent class settlements where the amounts seemed unfair. As such, you're better off in the class.

What happens if the class “wins” but you don’t like the settlement amount?

Can you use that verdict with your own attorney to short circuit the process and minimize legal fees?

The net is if each Z06 owner doesn’t receive sufficient compensation to “fix” the car, then it’s really not a fair settlement.

If you think that each member of the class is going to get enough money to "fix" the car, I have a great bridge in London I would like to sell you. Again, maybe on a large settlement each owner might get $8 and change.

I paid Gspeed to fix the cooling on my 2015 Z06 and my 2017 Z06, I doubt I will get anything close to what it cost me, but better then nothing I guess.

What do shops charge to fix the overheating issue? Price range?


Also got an email from Berman Hagen with the update for the lawsuit, says we are winning.

So then i can get my expenses covered ?
Did my own solution, found this front in east Germany, think it looks OEM and i love it.
I took oil cooler out of main water, and send oil through 200 F thermostat to driver side setrab cooler, then across to another setrab cooler in passenger side and return to engine.
Main radiator swapped out for Dewitt, so 20-30 % better cooling.
stock SC swapped out for TVS2300 Magnuson.
IC cooler circuit, removed stock tank, Weapon X tank up high, Bosch pump, water through driver side setrab cooler, then across to passenger side setrab cooler, then through stock IC cooler and then into TVS2300
glycol/water swapped out to straight water + water wetter

So now i hope my oil temp is south of 260F, water south of 216F and IC south of 140F, fingers crossed

Probably not, class action suit you get very little.

I like the front it's nice!

That front is great! As to when you get your expenses, you probably won't and all that has happened in the suit is that GM's motion to dismiss was denied in part and granted in part. The case must now proceed through discovery, settlement discussions, pretrial, and trial if no settlement occurs. Resolution could take at least another year. Here's a nice article on class action case duration: https://margarianlaw.com/class-action-lawsuit-duration/

Default Cooling on our Nurburgring car.

We never saw over 194° water temperature LOL temperature was roughly 220

No issues on any of those 13 mile long laps

Having just bought a '19 Z06 M7, it seems to me that it's running hot just in normal driving conditions. I hope that this is relevant in this thread - but I'm seeing 217-225 oil and water temps as a norm with every day driving, no track (car only has 750 miles on it). Is this normal? My '17 GS ra under 195 regularly, granted no supercharger, but do Z06's run normally between 217-225 or do I have a problem?

My 2015 Z stock just cruising averages around 200-210 on 80-90 degree outside ambient temp. Only time I've seen 220+ was when canyon carving at approximately 90 outside ambient temps.

For both oil and water

The OEM thermostat opens at 212dF iirc, so the temps you’re seeing are normal. At least for the C7s.

What temp for oil is considered too hot and you should pull over?

What temp is considered overheating for the Z06 on track?
