Volkswagen has reached a Settlement in Canada involving 2.0-litre Volkswagen and Audi TDI vehicles with current owners and certain former owners and lessees (as described below). This Settlement was reached following negotiations between Volkswagen and class action lawyers for the owners and lessees, in consultation with the Commissioner of Competition in Canada. The Courts will approve amounts for legal fees and expenses to the class action lawyers. Those amounts will be paid separately and will not reduce the Settlement benefits.

 

If the Settlement receives court approval, Volkswagen has agreed to offer in Canada the following benefits to eligible owners and lessees:

  • Cash payments for nearly 105,000 2.0-litre TDI vehicles; and
  • Many owners and lessees of these vehicles will also have choices that may include vehicle buyback, trade-in, early lease termination and, if approved by regulators, emissions modification.
