Volkswagen Water Pump Class Action

Merchant Law Group LLP has launched Canada-wide class action litigation alleging defects with the water pumps of certain Volkswagen and Audi vehicles, as per:

 

1.1 “Covered Parts” means all parts necessary to effectuate either (A) a repair or replacement of an Eligible Vehicle’s Primary Engine Water Pump, or (B) subject to the limitations described in Schedule A and Schedule B, or section 4.2.3, a repair or replacement of an Eligible Vehicle’s engine.

1.2 “Covered Parts and Labour” means all parts and labour necessary to effectuate either (A) a repair or replacement of an Eligible Vehicle’s Primary Engine Water Pump, or (B) subject to the limitations described in Schedule A and Schedule B, a repair or replacement of an Eligible Vehicle’s engine.

1.3 “Early Model Eligible Vehicle” means a Model Year 2008-2014 Volkswagen- or Audi-brand vehicle equipped with a 2.0L EA888 engine that is listed by VIN on Exhibit 1, imported and distributed by VGCA for sale or lease in Canada.

1.4 “Late Model Eligible Vehicle” means a Model Year 2014-2021 Volkswagen- or Audi-brand vehicle equipped with an 1.8L EA888 engine or Model Year 2015-2021 Volkswagen- or Audi-brand vehicle equipped with a 2.0L EA888 engine that is listed by VIN on Exhibit 1, imported and distributed by VGCA for sale or lease in Canada.

 

This lawsuit asserts that the specific engines in the above-described VW/Audi vehicles only, may prematurely fail as a result of the said defects in their water pump components. No other vehicle issues can be pursued or addressed via this class action.

 

If a VW/Audi water pump class action settlement is approved by the Court, thereafter ‘eligible class members’ under the terms of the class action settlement will then have the opportunity to apply for individual compensation. Eligible class members will have to fill-out and submit a court-approved CLAIM FORM at that time, which an independent Settlement Administrator’s Office will review in order to determine your potential eligibility for compensation. Such a CLAIM FORM does not currently exist and will only be published if a class action settlement is approved by the Court. Our law firm cannot submit a CLAIM FORM on behalf of a potential class member (and only the Settlement Administrator can determine eligibility for compensation).
