Class Members of the Nissan settlement include current and former owners or lessees of 2001-2004 model year Nissan Pathfinder with a VQ35 engine or a 2002-2005 model year Nissan Altima or Nissan Sentra with a QR25 engine. To be classified as a Class Member, you must have purchased or leased the vehicle in California.
The Nissan settlement provides reimbursement for costs associated with repairs that were made due to a loose or detached power valve screw that occurred outside the factory warranty period of five years or 60,000 miles (whichever occurred first). The following three criteria must be met in order to obtain reimbursement from the Nissan class action settlement:
The engine damage or failure must have occurred when the vehicle was (i) more than five years in-service or the odometer registered more than 60,000 miles, whichever occurred first, and (ii) less than 12 years in-service and less than 120,000 miles on the odometer;
If the repairs were previously paid for by Nissan (under the warranty, as part of Nissan’s Voluntary Service Campaign or by Nissan’s goodwill), reimbursement is not available.
Documentation must be provided to show the issue and the repair, date of the diagnosis and repair, and the mileage at the time of diagnosis and repair.
