CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT WITH VW/AUDI
We have been litigating what has now been preliminarily certified as a class action lawsuit against Volkswagen and Audi as a result of damage caused by water infiltration in the interiors of numerous Volkswagen and Audi vehicles, model years 1997 to 2009. Due to the defects, water enters the vehicles and causes damage to vehicle components and the interior.
As a result of the lawsuit, VW and Audi implemented “Service Actions” in 2007 and 2008, providing vehicle modifications and repairs, as well as reimbursement for expenses resulting from the drainage problems. These Service Actions provide relief for certain Volkswagen Passat vehicles and certain Audi A4 and A6 vehicles.
In addition, pursuant to a settlement reached and preliminarily approved, relief has been obtained in the form of: (1) implementation of a Service Action for the benefit of owners and lessees of certain Golf/GTI, Jetta, Jetta Wagon and New Beetle vehicles to modify their sunroof drain systems, (2) reimbursements to owners and lessees of certain Volkswagen and Audi vehicles, and (3) enhanced maintenance recommendations to customers and dealers in order
to prevent clogging of sunroof and plenum drain systems.
