A settlement in Canada has been reached with Volkswagen to resolve allegations of issues with primary engine coolant pumps in certain 2008-2021 Volkswagen and Audi vehicles.

Merchant Law Group LLP said: “Volkswagen completely denies any and all wrongdoing or liability, however its motivation in reaching the settlement is to ensure customer satisfaction and confidence in its vehicles.”

The parties agreed to settle the class actions in Canada on a without prejudice or admission basis, by way of mutual concessions. The settlement was approved by the Court on December 1, 2023.
