Welcome to the Official Website for the Volkswagen Fuel Economy Settlement.
A federal court has granted preliminary approval of a class action settlement resolving claims that certain Audi, Bentley, Porsche, and Volkswagen gasoline-powered vehicles sold or leased in the United States are equipped with software that may cause them to emit more carbon dioxide (CO2) and obtain worse fuel economy on the road than in testing conditions. The total amount of potential compensation to the Class through this Settlement is approximately $96.5 million, and any money that is not claimed by Class Members will be directed to environmental remediation efforts approved by the Court.
You are included in this Settlement if you own or lease a Class Vehicle (listed below) as of August 30, 2019, or previously owned or leased a Class Vehicle before that date. The Settlement is designed to compensate Class members for driving vehicles for which the actual, on-road fuel economy is up to 1 MPG less than was originally represented. The revised fuel economy ratings for the Class Vehicles is available at www.fueleconomy.gov. Differences between the original and revised fuel economy ratings among the Class Vehicles resulted in different compensation amounts for each make, model, and model year. Class members’ compensation is also based on the number of months that they owned or leased the Class Vehicle. The Class Vehicles are listed below.
You may also check your Vehicle Identification Number(VIN) to see if it is a qualifying Class Vehicle here.
