Navistar MaxxForce EGR Diesel Engines

Issue: Alleged defect in engine emissions system
Result: Settlement valued at $135 million

On January 3, 2020, Judge Joan B. Gottschall of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois issued an Order granting final approval to the proposed $135 million settlement of multidistrict litigation brought on behalf of plaintiff truck owners and lessees alleging that Navistar, Inc. and Navistar International, Inc. sold or leased 2011-2014 model year vehicles equipped with certain MaxxForce 11- or 13-liter diesel engines equipped with a defective EGR emissions system. Judge Gottschall ruled that the proposed class action settlement which had been submitted to the Court on May 28, 2019, was fair, reasonable, and adequate in addressing plaintiffs’ claims. Owners and lessees of the affected trucks had until May 11, 2020 to file their settlement claims at the official website.

The $135 million settlement provided class members with up to $2,500 per truck or up to $10,000 rebate off a new truck depending on months of ownership or lease, or the option to seek up to $15,000 per truck in out-of-pocket damages caused by the alleged defect.
