If your otherwise Eligible Generation One Vehicle is or was declared a total loss and transferred to your insurance company or otherwise permanently removed from commerce, your eligibility for benefits under the Class Action Settlement depends on when the vehicle became totaled.
If you owned an Eligible Vehicle that was totaled after September 18, 2015 but before January 31, 2017, and if the title was transferred to an insurance company or otherwise permanently removed from commerce, you may be eligible for benefits as an Eligible Former Owner.
If your vehicle is totaled after January 31, 2017, you may be eligible to receive some benefits, but you will not be eligible for the full Buyback amount or Trade-In credit, or an Approved Emissions Modification.
Keep in mind that if you tender a claim to your insurance company for an inoperable or totaled but otherwise Eligible Vehicle, you may wish to consider whether the insurance company will pay you benefits equivalent to those offered under the Class Action Settlement before surrendering your vehicle. You may want to consider repairing your vehicle.
