The goal of this settlement is to resolve multiple lawsuits in a consolidated format for the purposes of providing a fair settlement to owners and lessees of the affected 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine vehicles.

    I have filled out everything ! I have faxed in all my proof of purchase that you asked for. Never ever ever have heard back from you. I even had an appointment locally in November 2016 at my dealer to have repair begin. Then I never heard from Volkswagen again ! What is going on with my car and this lawsuit ?????????? Contact me……….. .I’ve contacted you enough, come on this is so unfair

    ADMIN – Hi Justin,

    This is not the proper forum for this escalation. We are not the class action administrators.

  2. LR says:

    There should be another class action lawsuit against the late payments and ‘top-off checks.’ I had received my settlement and Audi short-payed my lender, so I have an outstanding balance. It has been 3 months and Audi still hasn’t paid the difference, but they told me “the check’s in the mail” so now my account is past due and it’s impacting my credit.
    I would like to be compensated for damages to my credit and wasting my time on the phone 10 times to ask why the check hasn’t arrived to the lender.
    If there’s another suit, I’m in.
    Lies on top of lies! shame shame
