If you live in Quebec and purchased or leased a 2011-2014 model year Navistar vehicle equipped with a MaxxForce 11-, 13-, or 15-litre engine, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.
Depending on your months of ownership or lease, you may be entitled to up to $2,500 cash per Class Vehicle, up to a $10,000 rebate for a new heavy-duty truck, or up to $15,000 as a reimbursement for certain proven costs.
What is this lawsuit about?
The Settlement concerns the model year 2011-2014 Navistar vehicles equipped with MaxxForce 11-, 13-, or 15-litre engines certified to comply with the 2010 EPA standards, without the use of selective catalytic reduction technology. It is a resolution of a consumer Class Action alleging that the Defendants sold or leased Class Vehicles with defective Advanced Exhaust Gas Recirculation MaxxForce truck engines resulting in repeated engine failures and frequent repairs. Defendants deny all of the allegations in the lawsuit and maintain that they did nothing wrong.
The Superior Court of Quebec approved the Settlement in this Lawsuit on January 20, 2022. Class Members who did not exclude themselves must now make a claim if they wish to receive compensation from the Settlement. The Claims Period will start on February 24, 2022 and will run for 6 months until August 27, 2022.
I do not want to participate in the Settlement.
You do not need to submit a claim, but you can no longer exclude yourself from the Class. The Settlement is binding on you.
What if I do not submit a claim or do nothing?
You will not receive compensation.
