Notice of proposed certification and settlement approval hearing



    GM intake manifold gasket class action

    WATERLOO, ON, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Crawford Class Action Services reports a
proposed class action settlement has been reached between the plaintiffs and
GM relating to seventeen (17) class actions that were commenced across Canada
in 2006. The lawsuits alleged that the nylon intake manifold gaskets installed
in certain General Motors Corporation and General Motors of Canada Limited
("GM") vehicles were defective. The proposed Settlement does not constitute
any admission of liability by GM who denies the allegations.
    The Ontario Superior Court of Justice will decide whether it will certify
the class action for settlement purposes and approve the Settlement, including
class counsel fees, at a hearing on October 14, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. eastern
daylight savings time at 361 University Avenue, Toronto.
