Class Action Lawsuit Against Audi Auto Parts Manufacturer
According to the Audi class action lawsuit, the 2.0 T model is a new four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine designated by the name of the first generation EA888 engine. It is manufactured by the Audi Company and it is equipped with Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic control, Box Cam Timing and Lift Electronic control, Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic control, six speed automatic transmission with ECT adjustment, manual top speed cruise control, sport steering with HID daytime running lights, front air bags and dual zone climate control. The lawsuit claims that this vehicle has many safety features compared to other vehicles on the market today. The lawsuit also says that in addition to all the mentioned benefits, the excessive use of the water in the engine by the engine of the Audi leads to the deterioration of the various parts of the engine including the crankcase, main bearings, water pump, valves, gaskets and many others.
Audi Class Action Lawsuit Oil Consumption
This class-action lawsuit was filed on behalf of the plaintiff, who suffered from the injuries caused by the excessive oil consumption. The suit says that the defendant failed to warn the plaintiff about the excessive oil consumption which led to him being diagnosed with pleural effusions and pulmonary edema. He was subsequently diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma and laryngeal cancer. On the basis of the evidence given by the defendant and other witnesses present at the time of the crash, the court has ordered the car manufacturer to compensate the plaintiff for the medical expenses he has incurred due to the accident.
According to the class-action lawsuit, Audi also manufactures models of sedans such as the TT, Avanti, Avis, Calibra, RS, Quattro, C Class, Cupita, RS wagon, TTS, Vision, CT cross country, Fiesta ST, Track pack, Polo, Gallardo, Gran Turismo S, Sagaris and Tuscan. All these vehicles are sold with a conventional four-cylinder engine that burns gasoline and diesel.
According to the class-action lawsuit, Audi markets its models of cars and SUVs with high pressure oil tanks that lead to the high consumption of fuel and emissions which in turn lead to the damage of the plaintiff’s vehicle.
This complaint states that the Audi A3, Avanti, Calibra, RS, Quattro, C Class, Cupita, TTS, Vision, CT cross country, Fiesta ST, Gran Turismo S and Tuscan are fitted with air bags, front crankshaft seal and front roller deflectors. However, according to this complaint, the manufacturers have failed to warn the buyers about the excessive oil consumption that causes the high wear and tear of the engine parts.
The high engine temperature leads to the deterioration of the radiator and overheating of the engine. The crankcase pressure regulating valve seals the oil in the crankcase and prevents oil leaks.
If you own one of these vehicles, you can join the class action lawsuit as soon as possible.
The manufacturers have thirty days to prove their innocence regarding the sales of vehicles with high fuel consumption rates. If they cannot prove that the products are safe, then they have no option left to stop selling them. The car companies have also been given six months to clean up their act or the court will issue an order to ban the vehicles. The Class Action lawsuit aims to help people avoid suffering from the sudden loss of power and performance of their cars caused by the excessive oil consumption.
However, there are many reasons for the increasing engine oil consumption in these vehicles.
The most important one is the overuse of the engine oil. The excessive oil leads to the formation of hard mineral deposits inside the engine, which in turn affects the oil pump and clutch assembly.
These defects may lead to malfunctioning of the engines and constant malfunctions at driving speeds. This results in the constant need to purchase new cars from the auto manufacturers.
