What Is Hino Motors This Settlement About

A $237.5 Million Settlement class action lawsuit has been settled with Hino Motors, Ltd. Plaintiffs allege that the company took part in schemes to manipulate emissions test results for certain Hino-branded trucks in the United States, which Plaintiffs allege harmed purchasers and lessees of the Settlement Class Trucks.

How Do I Know If I Qualify?

To qualify for a payout from the Hino Motors class action settlement you must have been a person or entity that purchased or leased a Settlement Class Truck, through October 30, 2023. You can check whether your Truck is included in the Settlement Class on the VIN Lookup page by entering your Vehicle Identification Number (“VIN”).

Settlement Class Trucks include any on-road vehicles equipped and that were originally sold or leased in the United States with a Hino engine model from the year 2010 through and including 2019.

How Much Can I Get Paid?

From the Settlement fund you can expect to be paid compensation that will be equally divided between all Class Members who submitted a valid timely claim form. The expected payout range is approximately from $1,500 to $15,000 per Settlement Class Truck, depending on the volume of claims submitted by legitimate claimants.

The Hino Settlement additionally includes a robust extended warranty that covers the following:

• The repair or replacement of specific emission system parts,
• Diagnostic test fees, if the testing leads to necessary repairs,
• Warranty for new parts if there are government required or recommended emissions repairs or recalls,
• Repairs involving qualified Hino trucks as part of the Settlement, at any point in the next three years.

How Do I File a Claim and Get Paid?

You must timely submit a valid claim by June 15, 2024 to receive a settlement payment. If you received a Postcard or Email Notice and provided your Unique ID from that notice, you will not need to provide any documentation in order to submit your claim.

If you do not have a Unique ID, or if the Settlement Administrator is unable to verify the information in your claim, you may be asked to provide additional documentation. This supporting documentation could include items such as the vehicle title, registration, purchase agreement, lease agreement, insurance records, or any other documentation that displays both your name and the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) may be requested to show your ownership or lease of the vehicle.
