Final Notice of Certification and Settlement Approval



    GM intake manifold gasket class action

    WATERLOO, ON, Oct. 31 /CNW/ - Crawford Class Action Services reports a
class action settlement has been approved by the Ontario Superior Court of
Justice and the Quebec Superior Court relating to seventeen (17) class actions
that were commenced across Canada in 2006 against GM alleging that the nylon
intake manifold gaskets installed in certain General Motors Corporation and
General Motors of Canada Limited ("GM") vehicles were defective. The
Settlement provides for reimbursement to class members for certain repairs,
provided claims are made by April 30, 2009. The Settlement does not constitute
any admission of liability by GM who denies the allegations.
    The class action was certified for settlement purposes and the Settlement
approved by Orders of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and the Quebec
Superior Court.
