Please take note of the following information from our law firm.  If the Nissan CVT class action settlement is approved by the Court in March 2022, thereafter “eligible class members” under the terms of the Nissan CVT class action settlement, will then have the opportunity to apply for individual compensation (in approximately May 2022).


You will have to fill-out and submit a court-approved CLAIM FORM at that time, which the Settlement Administrator will review in order to determine your eligibility for compensation.  Such a CLAIM FORM does not currently exist and will only be published if the Nissan CVT class action is approved by the Court. 


The Settlement Administrator’s Office has established a website to assist people in understanding the terms of this proposed class action settlement, including providing an FAQ section.  Please visit that website now at


Please check their website every six weeks for any future updates that are posted online by the Settlement Administrator’s Office.
