Auto Parts Settlements Overview of the Settlements Twenty-three defendant groups and their affiliates (“Settling Defendants”) have agreed to Settlements resolving claims that they fixed the price of certain vehicle components. This may have caused individuals and businesses to pay more for certain new vehicles and replacement parts. These Settling Defendants deny any claims of wrongdoing.You may be included if, from 1996 to 2016, you: (1) bought or leased a qualifying new vehicle in the U.S. (not for resale); or (2) bought a qualifying vehicle replacement part (not for resale) from someone other than the manufacturer of the part. In general, qualifying vehicles are four-wheeled passenger automobiles, cars, light trucks, pickup trucks, crossovers, vans, mini-vans, and sport utility vehicles.In May 2016, settlements with 11 of the Settling Defendants (“Round 1 Settlements), totaling approximately $225 million, received final Court approval. Additional settlements totaling $379,401,268 have now been reached with 12 additional Settling Defendants. Those 12 additional Settling Defendants are called the “Round 2 Settling Defendants,” and the settlements with them are called the “Round 2 Settlements.” This website contains information about both the Round 1 and Round 2 Settlements. If you file a claim, it will be considered for inclusion in both the Round 1 and Round 2 Settlements.The Settlements, totaling approximately $604 Million, provide money for consumers in 30 states and the District of Columbia as well as non-monetary relief, including cooperation, and agreements by certain Settling Defendants not to engage in certain conduct for a period of 24 months.
I have purchased 5 new cars since 1996 and not a single one of them is on their list of eligible vehicles. You can go to the claim website and put in your vehicles and it will tell you if you are eligible.

It's a perfectly waste of time to fill out the form unless you know for sure you'll be able to use whatever coupons they give you.
This will be interesting. My car falls into the list, but the effected part is the HID ballast, something my car doesn't have at its trim level. I guess it won't hurt to try. Only thing they can do is deny my claim.
Fat.. I uploaded a photo of the top section of my purchase agreement which linked the car to me.
Several asking questions about proof of purchase. If they ask for it, and you don't have it, then you likely are SOL. Keep in mind that giving them all your info, including your name, address, VIN, price you paid, etc. gives them a wealth of info.
I chose to register only at this time and not provide any receipts or VINs. I'll wait to see how much this amounts to.
hey the Lawyers and the sextetartys work very HARD putting all that information that the peons will recieve there mere pittance....Its HARD work...and the partys !!have you ever tried to party 7 days a week,,its tough work,,,
