Stock SymbolN/A

The Firm has filed a federal class action lawsuit against Audi of America, LLC and Audi AG in the Northern District of California regarding the auto maker’s alleged deliberate deception of consumers when it installed “defeat devices” in certain Audi gasoline engine automobiles.

According to the Complaint filed in this lawsuit, Audi allegedly advertised, marketed and sold certain vehicles that contained a hidden “defeat device” in the automatic transmission of the automobile. When the defeat device is activated, the transmission stays in a low rev mode, using less fuel and producing less CO2. In normal traffic, the defeat device is deactivated, and the transmission switches to a mode with higher fuel consumption and CO2 output resulting in increased noxious gases, and less desirable fuel efficiency.

The class action lawsuit asserts claims for breach of written and express warranty, and violations of California consumer protection laws. The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages for Audi consumers and injunctive relief.

Customers throughout the United States who purchased or leased the following Audi automobiles with a 3.0 gasoline engine and automatic transmission may have a defeat device installed in their vehicle:

  • Audi Q5
  • Audi Q7
  • Audi A6
  • Audi A8
