Any GLK diesel owners sign up for class action lawsuit?

Looks like the ball is starting to move again for the Mercedes Diesel scandal.

Did anyone join the class action? As I understand it, we don't need to sign up, if the verdict is against MB USA, we will be compensated?
It looks like the US has a strong case, surprised its taking so long after VW...

I haven't, just as I didn't for the VW fiasco. I let things run their course and turned my leased Golf TDI in early, along with settlement checks received from VW and Bosch.

If judgement follows the same course in the MB scandal, Bluetec owners will likely receive similar options. The harder choice is whether to let them "fix" it, which effectively neuters your car, or to turn it in for a settlement amount and find another SUV that we enjoy as much.

Either way, I've been following developments but I'm not jumping the gun yet.

I am surprised this thread has not seen more action/posts. I am certainly following this issue closely with my 2014 250.

My personal experience with class action lawsuits is that there is little benefit to members of the 'class', in this case the car owners. These class action lawsuits benefit only the lawyers involved. Their massive fees take the largest majority of monetary damages and members of the 'class' get little or nothing. There were law firms founded solely for the purpose of pursuing class actions and they've become wealthy.

Years ago I spent much time gathering documents, filling out pages and pages of forms for what seemed to have potential for reimbursement of substantial financial loss. After years of waiting in one case, and periodically filling in new forms, I received a check for literally pennies. Not even enough to cover postage spent to return the forms. I wouldn't hold my breath here. I'll just enjoy my car while I have it. I'd guess if there is any benefit to be passed down to us owners that we'll be advised via MB USA, but I'm not expecting a thing!

snip there is little benefit to members of the 'class', snip


^^^ this.

I'm watching things closely, as they seem to be progressing, but I'm not jumping the gun to enrich some law firm. If there is a settlement, MB will offer it to me and I can make my decision then.

Until such time, it's a wait and see game. 94K miles and going strong.

I think the people involved in the VW diesel fiasco made out so well because of all the negative publicity associated with it. But I just don't see anything at all on major news sites about this one and when I do see something it is just a short blurb. I'm convinced that it is going to turn out to be a whole lot of nothing.

I would love to see some payback for the hassle that I had with my GLK250 but I seriously doubt I will get anything.
