Mercedes-Benz, Sprinter $789M BlueTEC Emissions Class Action Settlement
Mercedes-Benz and Bosch agreed to pay over $789 million to resolve claims that certain Mercedes vehicles were equipped with defective emission control systems.
The settlement benefits current and former owners or lessees of certain Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC vehicles. A full list of included vehicles and model years can be found on the settlement website.
