The parent company of Mercedes-Benz, Daimler AG, is under investigation following allegations that it tried to cheat emissions testing. It is alleged that Mercedes-Benz did this by fitting defeat devices into many if its diesel cars and vans. As a result, the company’s’ diesel engines appeared to be cleaner and less polluting when tested than they were.

People who bought affected vehicles were misled about their efficiency and environmental friendliness and have suffered losses as a result. These Mercedes-Benz diesel owners may be entitled to thousands of pounds each.

Keller Lenkner UK is holding Mercedes-Benz to account for breaking the law and deceiving their customers. But what else do you need to know about this case?

Mercedes-Benz claim FAQs

Mercedes-Benz recalled millions of diesel vehicles as a result of emissions concerns. This happened after the German Federal Motor Transport Authority accused Mercedes-Benz of installing a defeat device to limit emissions readings during testing of its diesel vehicles. Multiple countries are now investigating Mercedes’ parent company, Daimler AG, for installing these devices on its diesel cars and vans between 2008 and 2018 to pass emissions tests. These devices made Mercedes-Benz diesel engines appear to be cleaner and less polluting than they were. We believe Mercedes-Benz owes affected diesel vehicle owners and lessors financial compensation.

Mercedes-Benz has already recalled three million diesel vehicles across Europe and has been fined £800 million by German prosecutors. In addition to government investigations, Mercedes-Benz is also facing lawsuits in Germany, the United States, Canada and the UK.
