Welcome to the Settlement Website for the class action lawsuit, known as Wilson v. Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. Settlement, pending in the US District Court, Southern District of Florida.
A settlement has been reached in a class action that alleges model year 2009-2017 Volkswagen CC vehicles might potentially be susceptible to certain types of excessive uneven tire wear, sometimes requiring early replacement of tires. Volkswagen has denied the claims and maintains there is no defect or issue with respect to the vehicles or their tires. Current and former owners and lessees (“Class Members”) of model year 2009-2017 Volkswagen CC vehicles (“Settlement Class Vehicles”) may be eligible for certain benefits under the proposed Settlement. The court has issued an order dated January 28, 2020, and a judgment dated January 29, 2020, granting final approval of the class settlement.
The Settlement Class has been identified as the following:
All persons or entities who purchased or leased a Settlement Class Vehicle imported and distributed by Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. for sale or lease in the United States of America and Puerto Rico.
