- Why am I entitled to compensation?
Peugeot, Opel and Citroën defrauded the software in their cars and sold you a car that appeared clean, but was in reality very polluting, without telling you. In many cases, Peugeot, Opel and Citroën actually pretended that the cars were very clean. Peugeot, Vauxhall and Citroën thereby misled you. If you had known that the car you bought was far from meeting emission standards, you would not have bought or leased the car at the same price. You are entitled to compensation for those damages.
- Which Peugeot, Opel and Citroën cars are eligible?
Anyone who owns or has owned, or is or has been a leasing customer of a Peugeot, Opel, Citroën or DS diesel vehicle produced between 1 September 2009 and 1 September 2019 and marketed in the Netherlands can apply. After adding your vehicle(s), you will receive notification from us whether the vehicle is eligible.
- How long will the procedure take?
We issued the writ on 18 July 2021. See here for the writ. We expect the proceedings to take another 2 to 3 years or so. See the specific page on our website about the proceedings against Stellantis for more information. Follow-up proceedings may be needed to win damages.
After you have applied and added your vehicle(s), Emission Claim Foundation will keep you informed through update emails. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the state of play, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com
