The Settlement concerns the model year 2013-2017 Audi, Bentley, Porsche and Volkswagen gasoline-powered vehicles listed below that were originally sold or leased in Canada (the “Eligible Vehicles”). It is a resolution of consumer class actions alleging that the Eligible Vehicles are equipped with software that sometimes optimizes fuel consumption and CO2 emissions during testing but not under normal driving conditions.

The Settlement has been approved by the Ontario and Quebec Courts on January 6, 2021.

You may be a Class Member included in the Settlement if:

1. You (whether an individual or entity) are a resident in Canada or the United States; AND

2.    On or before October 5, 2020, one of the following applies: 

The Settlement provides compensation to Class Members for additional fuel costs. The compensation received by Class Members would be paid out of the funds remaining from the $4,950,000 Settlement proceeds after deducting the court-approved legal fees and disbursements (including taxes) of Class Counsel, the costs of administering and distributing the Settlement, and amounts owing to Ontario’s Class Proceedings Fund.

Compensation from the Settlement will be paid out to Class Members proportionately based on the number of participating Class Members up to the amount of the Maximum Per Vehicle Payments, which can be viewed here. The Maximum Per Vehicle Payments provide compensation for additional fuel costs covering 96 months from the Eligible Vehicles’ in-service date. Because of the proportionate distribution, it is not possible to estimate the individual payments to Class Members until all of the claims have been received and reviewed.
