Although denying any wrongdoing or liability, Volkswagen was motivated to reach a settlement to ensure customer satisfaction and confidence in its vehicles.
The class actions were certified on October 16, 2023. The parties agreed to settle the class actions in Canada on a without prejudice or admission basis, by way of mutual concessions. Details about the class actions, proposed settlement, and available benefits can be found at canadianwaterpumpsettlement.ca or by contacting the Settlement Administrator at 1-866-642-0774.
The settlement must be approved by the Court to become effective. The settlement approval hearing will be held on December 1, 2023, at the Court of King’s Bench, Saskatchewan, or virtually, subject to the direction of the Court.
Requests to opt-out or object to the settlement must be received by November 30, 2023.
