Final claims deadline approaches for Volkswagen (VW) settlement

Consumer Action Alert: Heads Up for VW 2.0-Liter Diesel Owners and Lessees to File Claims

The Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” litigation settlement of more than $15 billion, announced in June 2016, is quickly approaching the deadline for 2.0-liter diesel owners and lessees to file claims and receive their benefits. This will ensure that these vehicles either are removed from the road or receive an approved emissions modification.

According to the latest report from the court-appointed claims supervisor, Volkswagen has met its obligation to remove from sale or modify at least 85 percent of the 2.0-liter vehicles, both federally and in the state of California, or risk additional penalties. However, about 15 percent of these vehicles have not been repaired or removed from the market—and the final deadline for owners and lessees to file their claims is fast approaching.
