What's This Settlement About?

This settlement alleges that certain Mercedes vehicles were equipped with emission control systems that caused the Subject Vehicles to emit more nitrogen oxides (“NOx”) than consumers reasonably expected, and more NOx than was permitted under federal and state clean air laws. Plaintiffs also claim that the Defendants intentionally misled consumers about the qualities and characteristics of the Subject Vehicles.

On July 12, 2021, the Court granted Final Approval of the Mercedes Class Action Settlement and the Bosch Class Action Settlement.

How Do I Qualify?

You are automatically included in the Class Action Settlements if you qualify as a Class Member and do not exclude yourself by “opting out” from the Class. The Class is composed of all current and former owners or lessees of Subject Vehicles who:

• On or before September 14, 2020 owned or leased and Registered a Subject Vehicle; or:

• After September 14, 2020 begin owning or leasing and Register a Subject Vehicle for which an AEM has not been installed.

The Class includes automobile dealers and resellers who meet either of the above qualifications for Class membership (including registration of the Subject Vehicle).

If you purchased or leased and Registered a Subject Vehicle in the United States, you may be a Class Member and eligible for a cash payment even if you no longer own or lease the Subject Vehicle. If you own or lease a Registered Subject Vehicle, to receive a payment under the Class Action Settlements, you must complete your AEM installation and submit a Valid Claim by October 1, 2022. You can continue to drive your vehicle without an AEM until you schedule an AEM appointment, but you will not be eligible to submit a claim for a Current Owner/Lessee Payment or Post-Announcement Owner/Lessee Payment until the AEM is installed in your vehicle.

How Much Can I Get?

If you are a current owner or lessee of a Registered Subject Vehicle and have not opted out of the Class, you can receive a payment up to $3,515.
