Anyone else get an email asking if they want to opt out of a class action lawsuit against MB for emissions on the 2.1 diesel?

What's going on?

"Good day,

A Court authorized this notice – you are not being sued.

If you own, owned, lease, or leased one of the listed vehicles, a class action may affect your rights.

Please read the attached Legal Notice for more details.

Sincerely,

The Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC Class Action Administrator

... the suit is for the benefit of Canadian Sprinter (and other MB) owners:

http://www.mercedesbluetecclassaction.ca/court-documents.html

You are included in this lawsuit if you are in Canada and own, owned, lease or leased
one of the BlueTEC Vehicles: ML320, ML350, GL320, E320, E250, S350, R320, R350,
E Class, GL Class, ML Class, R Class, S Class, GLK Class, GLE Class and Sprinter of
any and all model years.
Unlike the usual US class-actions, here you're being allowed to exclude yourself *before* the trial or any settlements are reached.

There is/was a similar to class action for the USA but a judge tossed it out. Money talks and bullschit walks. I would join if lived in Canada.

So, this suit alleges that MB used emissions defeat devices to fake emissions tests (like VW). This may or may not be proven true.

It would be a lot more interesting if it alleged something like a violation of the "implied warranty of fitness for purpose" due to emissions systems that (a) don't work reliably and (b) unreasonably diminishes the usability of the vehicle for its intended purpose.

What I'm curious about is how likely is there to be a settlement and what that may be.

If there were a settlement how likely would it be similar to the VW one I wonder.

Anybody investigate this further, I have a high mileage 2014 2.1 litre and don't want to sell it just incase there is a settlement.

Just got a note from attorney leading the class action case and there is an additional settlement from Bosch.... This is on top of the MB settlement....

Last week, Judge Dennis M. Cavanaugh preliminarily approved a settlement reached between a class of consumers and Bosch, the German engineering company that supplied emissions software to Mercedes that enabled cheating on diesel emissions tests in select Mercedes-Benz vehicles. While a dollar amount was not disclosed, Judge Cavanaugh’s ruling states that “the Bosch Settlement provides meaningful relief to the Class in the form of monetary compensation.” Read the Order »

To claim a Class Member Payment under the Class Action Settlement you must submit a valid claim. The claim form will be available on the Settlement Website (www.mbbluetecsettlement.com) with further information about the settlement, as well as updates about the deadline to submit your claim. The settlement website is currently being updated and will hopefully go live within two weeks, hopefully sooner.

Bob, you could opt out of the class and pursue your own case ...
