UPDATE – April 21, 2017 – Settlement of 2.0L Emissions Claims
On December 19, 2016 Class Counsel and VW announced an agreement, subject to court approval, to resolve Canadian consumer claims related to the 2.0L TDI emissions matter for approximately 105,000 affected VW and Audi vehicles across Canada. The settlement provides for cash payments to eligible owners and lessees, many of whom have choices that may include vehicle buybacks, trade-in, emissions modification (if approved by regulators) and early lease termination. On April 21, 2017 the 2.0L settlement was approved by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice as being fair, reasonable and in the best interests of the class.
