About this Case

This case was filed in 2013. The parties reached an agreement to settle the case in 2014, and final approval was given to that settlement the same year. As a result of the settlement, class members were reimbursed out-of-pocket expenses incurred to fix the engine misfiring defect. Checks have been mailed to eligible class members. Class members also received a 3-year extension on the Powertrain Warranty related to the engine misfiring defect.
