Certain of the following Mercedes models powered by diesel-fuelled engines and sold from 2008 up to 2018: A-Class, B-Class, C-Class, Citan, CLA, CLS, E-Class, GL-Class, GLA-Class, GLC-Class, GLE-Class, GLS, GLK, M-Class, S-Class, SLK, Sprinter, V-Class, and Vito (however, additional models are likely to have released dirty diesel emissions). These models include passenger and commercial vehicles and vans, such as people movers, shuttles and taxis.
At this stage, we do not need any documentation or proof of purchase. We are just asking – via the Register Now form – for you to provide (1) title/name/address/date of birth so that we can perform electronic KYC (‘know your client’) and AML (‘anti-money laundering’) checks and (2) your vehicle registration number. In due course, we may ask for proof of ownership (in order to link you to your vehicle) along with any other supporting documents which may be required for the litigation and proving your loss (but we will correspond directly with you for that).
Yes, both private owners and business owners (such as fleet operators and hire care companies) can register. Lessees are also eligible.
Yes, since the deception will have affected the purchase price for both parties and may have affected the on-going running costs of the vehicle while under the ownership of both.
If you are based in Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man and you bought or leased your Mercedes diesel vehicle in England or Wales, please register to join our winning team, and we shall be able to help you with your claim.
If your vehicle was purchased elsewhere, please register in case we expand to include litigation in your region; alternatively, you could seek to join an action group where your rights are protected, and any claim is to be governed by the relevant law in your jurisdiction.
Yes, that is no bar to a claim regarding a mis-sold vehicle.
We anticipate different categories of loss can be claimed against Mercedes as a result of their dirty diesel emissions. In respect of company cars that means both the company and the employee could have a claim for compensation. We would therefore urge both the owners or lessees, as well as the drivers, of company cars to register now to discover their rights and potential options.
