Class Actions

Volkswagen – Anti-pollution system

The Superior Court has decided that a class action instituted by François Grondin and Option Consommateurs will proceed first. The petitioners in that case are represented by Maxime Nasr and Daniel Belleau, of Belleau Lapointe.

Pierre Boivin and Robert Kugler are acting on behalf of the Petitioner with respect to a Class Action filed on behalf of owners and lessees of diesel vehicles of any of the following models: VW Jetta (model years 2009 to 2015), VW Golf (model years 2009 to 2015), VW Golf Wagon (model years 2009 to 2015), VW Beetle (model years 2009 to 2015), VW Passat (model years 2012 and 2013) and Audi A3, 4 cylinders of 2 litres (model years 2009 to 2015).

According to on-going investigations, it is likely that this Class Action will expand to include all diesel vehicles of the aforementioned models for the years 2009 to 2015 inclusively.

The Motion claims on behalf of the class members, all damages caused by Volkswagen in the manufacturing and sale of vehicles which to their knowledge did not comply with required environmental standards, contrary to their representations.

You are a class member if you were the owner or lessee of any of the aforementioned models of vehicles as at September 18, 2015.
