Important Update

The Court has granted final approval to the Round 3 Settlements. A deadline to file claims has not yet been established. If and when additional settlements are announced notice will be sent to everyone who has registered or filed a claim previously. Please continue to check this website periodically for updates about the settlements.

Overview of the Settlements

The Court has granted final approval to the proposed Round 3 Settlements, which have been reached with 33 Defendants. For additional information please review the FAQs page or the March 2018 Notice, which is available on the Court Documents page of this website.

You can now file a claim to get money from the Auto Parts Settlements. This website contains information about the first three rounds of Settlements. Please continue to check back periodically for updated information about future settlements.

Separate lawsuits claiming that Defendants in each lawsuit entered into unlawful agreements that artificially raised the prices of certain component parts of qualifying new vehicles have been settled with 56 Defendants and their affiliates (“Settling Defendants”). Previously, settlements with 23 of the Settling Defendants (“Round 1 Settlements” totaling approximately $225 million and “Round 2 Settlements” totaling approximately $379 million) received final Court approval. Now, additional settlements totaling approximately $432,823,040 have been reached with 33 Settling Defendants. These Settling Defendants are called the “Round 3 Settling Defendants,” and the settlements with them are called the “Round 3 Settlements.”

You may be included if, at any time between 1995 and 2018, depending upon the component part, you: (1) bought or leased a qualifying new vehicle in the U.S. (not for resale) or (2) indirectly purchased a qualifying vehicle replacement part (not for resale). Indirectly means you bought the vehicle replacement part from someone other than the manufacturer of the part. In general, qualifying vehicles are four-wheeled passenger automobiles, cars, light trucks, pickup trucks, crossovers, vans, mini-vans, and sport utility vehicles.

You only need to file one claim regardless of: (1) the number of vehicles you purchased or leased; (2) the number of replacement parts you purchased; or (3) which settlement funds your purchases or leases may be applicable. If you have registered on this website, you will receive updates as new settlements are reached with additional defendants or in additional parts cases. We also recommend that you check this website periodically for any changes including additions to the list of included vehicles and parts.

The Settlements, totaling approximately $1.04 Billion, provide money for consumers in 30 states and the District of Columbia as well as non-monetary relief, including cooperation, and agreements by certain Settling Defendants not to engage in certain conduct for a period of 24 months.
