VW Diesel FAQ’s
- Q. How much compensation will I receive?
A. This will depend upon what vehicle you own(ed) or lease(ed). The level of your compensation will also depend upon when you bought your vehicle and may depend upon how much you sold your vehicle for/how much it is worth now. For owners of vehicles bought or leased after 1 October 2014, the compensation could be as high as 100% of the purchase price. For other owners, we hope to achieve at least as much as American owners received (an average of about £5,000).
- Q. Will I have to go to court?
A. Probably not. If VW insists on defending the case all the way to trial, then a handful of Claimants (likely between 10 and 20) will be selected out of the tens of thousands who are participating in the action in order to give evidence. Anyway, going to court is nothing to be afraid of– VW is in the wrong!
- Q. What will it cost me to bring the claim against VW?
A. Nothing upfront. In signing up, you will be asked to enter into a “no win, no fee” agreement with Excello Law, a top UK law firm, and our collaborator on this case. Under the terms of the agreement, you will only be liable to pay Excello Law’s fees and expenses, as well as those of barristers, funders, and insurers, if the case is successful. The exact amount that you will pay will depend upon how long the case takes, how much time the lawyers need to spend on it, and the level of compensation obtained. You will, however, receive at least 50% of your compensation in all circumstances.

A. All the lawyers in the action are committed to obtaining a payout on your behalf as quickly as possible.

A. Your claim will be brought as part of a Group Litigation Order (a “GLO”) which is the mechanism by which the courts in England and Wales manage thousands of cases that are all brought together at the same time. During the sign-up, you will be asked to read a document called the Litigation Management Agreement which is the contract by which you will appoint a Committee of Claimants to give instructions to Excello Law to bring the claim on your behalf. This allows your lawyers to act for tens of thousands of people like you all at the same time.
- Q. What laws are being used to bring the claim against VW?
A. The Generic Particulars of Claim (the formal document used to bring the claim against VW) alleges that VW, Audi, Seat, and Skoda fraudulently represented that the affected vehicles complied with all relevant UK and EU laws on the sale, registration and putting into service of vehicles. It also alleges that VW, Audi, Seat, and Skoda fraudulently represented that the vehicles did not incorporate unlawful defeat devices and that the vehicles did not require modification in order to meet relevant emissions standards. As well as the claim in fraud, it alleges that there have been breaches of contract, EU Law, consumer credit laws, and consumer protection laws.

- Q. Why are funders and insurers involved in the action?

A. Yes, if you work for VW and currently or previously owned or leased an affected vehicle, you will be eligible to make a claim.

A. You won’t be able to join the Group Litigation in England and Wales, but you should still sign up with us anyway. We will liaise with lawyers in those jurisdictions to seek to obtain your payout, or alternatively, negotiate directly with VW on your behalf.
- Q. Should I allow VW to “fix” my vehicle?
A. We can’t tell you what to do, but as you will no doubt be aware, thousands of owners of affected vehicles have complained about the alleged effects of the “fix” on the performance and fuel consumption of their vehicles.
