Volkswagen & Audi CleanDiesel Attorneys
Mazie Slater proven track record of success litigating against Volkswagen and Audi. We previously litigated and successfully settled a class action against Volkswagen and Audi related to defects in over 3 million vehicles resulting in benefits with a value of approximately $80 million. That settlement required Volkswagen and Audi to repair defects in vehicles and also forced them to reimburse owners for damages incurred as a result of the defect.
In addition to Volkswagen and Audi, our law firm has also successfully taken on numerous other major automobile manufacturers and achieved excellent results:

Volkswagen Emission Class Action Lawsuits
Volkswagen & Audi TDI Class Action
Hundreds of thousands of VW and Audi diesel vehicles that were sold and leased in the United States were apparently rigged to trick emission inspections. As a result, the cars were actually expelling significantly more pollutants into the air than the levels represented by Volkswagen and Audi. On September, 18, 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) announced that certain vehicles with 2.0 liter diesel engines were “using a defeat device in cars to evade clean air standards” and were a “threat to public health.” When these vehicles are brought into EPA compliance, they will likely suffer from reduced performance, will be less desirable to both current and prospective owners, and will also be worth less in the secondary market.
Volkswagen and Audi falsely touted their TDI vehicles as being “clean” and efficient, while still preserving high vehicle performance. However, these “CleanDiesel” vehicles contained a “defeat device” that was designed to circumvent vehicle emissions testing programs and perpetuate the narrative that VW and Audi’s diesel vehicles could be both low-emission and still maintain high performance.
