Default Investigation of Dex-Cool; potential class-action lawsuit

Wow... I just found this link on Google. Is this new, or have people known about this for a while? Perhaps we can all get a little reimbursement out of this deal.

We have known about the Dex Cool debate for a long time... I personally have no fear of using Dex Cool in any of my cars...

DexCool was the answer to 100 000 mile first tune ups, because its such a long lasting product, that is why a lot of cars with 100 000 mile first tune ups have hard *** hell Micheline tires, platinum tipped spark plugs and high quality plug wires.

Never has to be changed for a long time.

Its well known that DexCool works best in all aluminum engine applications but its not as desirable in cast iron/aluminum engines.

Maintain it...simple.

DexCool is fine otherwise.

And to add onto Johns mention of the 100K tuneup. Hahahahahaha don't let it go that long. Dex cool, plat tipped or iridiium plugs...

It still needs to be changed and maintained. 100K is not an answer
