Germany’s largest consumer protection group has filed a lawsuit against Daimler to help Mercedes owners get redress over the Dieselgate scandal.
If successful, the lawsuit will set a precedent that would allow Mercedes GLC and GLK car owners to gain compensation over software allegedly used to trick emissions tests in the diesel emissions scandal.
According to the VZBV, a total of 254,000 Mercedes vehicles were recalled in Germany. The recall was ordered in 2018 and the VZBV said it was filing its case before Daimler’s potential legal liability expires.
VZBV comments on Daimler’s actions
“Those who may have been affected will obtain certainty over whether Daimler AG deliberately installed illegal defeat devices in several vehicle models,” VZBV chief Klaus Mueller said in a statement.
“Despite official recalls, Daimler AG to this day denies it deliberately manipulated the emissions of its cars. The Stuttgart regional court should declare this. That would bring legal clarity for many consumers who have been affected.”
Daimler has not yet admitted wrongdoing in the matter. It said it considered emissions litigation against it to be baseless and would contest the case brought by the VZBV.
