If You Bought or Leased a New Motor Vehicle, or Bought Certain Replacement Parts for a Motor Vehicle in the U.S. Since 1998, You Could Get Money from Settlements Totaling Approximately $225 Million.
Eleven Defendant groups and their affiliates (“Settling Defendants”) have agreed to Settlements resolving claims that they fixed the price of certain motor vehicle components. This may have caused individuals and businesses to pay more for new motor vehicles and certain replacement parts. The Settling Defendants deny any claims of wrongdoing.

You may be included if, from 1998 to 2015, you: (1) bought or leased a new motor vehicle in the U.S. (not for resale), or (2) indirectly paid for a motor vehicle replacement part. Indirectly means you bought the replacement part from someone other than the manufacturer of the part. New motor vehicles include, but are not limited to, automobiles, cars, light trucks, pickup trucks, crossovers, vans, mini-vans, and sport utility vehicles.

The Settlements provide money for consumers in 30 states and the District of Columbia as well as non-monetary relief, including cooperation, and they also include agreements by certain Settling Defendants not to engage in certain conduct for a period of 24 months.

The 30 states are: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

How does this work? I just got a paper in the mail about this like 3 days after I signed up. Do I need to do anything with it?
Do nothing.
This OP is way premature.
It is not required to sign up now. Don't do this folks if you are not objecting.
Only when they come up with an actual claim form one can sign up for the benefits.

The only ones who get money on a Class Action are the lawyers.

Guess I'm an attorney then, but didn't know it. I particularly enjoyed the $300 I was awarded as part of one class action. Smilie

I feel your pain. My regressive state isn't included yet either. Here's hoping our backwards state join in too. We bought 3 new cars in the time period.

Actually there had been quite a few class actions where we got hundreds of dollars, each person.

Makes sense, as they're the ones who have to do the organization and arguing of the cases...

Unless you think you can do it.

Same. I once received $600 in an illegal call recording class action lawsuit. So they are not all scams. It is true however, that payments would be much larger if lawyers didn't take a ridiculous chunk. Then again, that's why they get into these kinds of lawsuits in the first place Mad

Many times, when the state is excluded is because the companies are in bed with our representatives and create laws that protect the business and don't give a shit abut the consumer

agree. if there were no incentives for the lawyers, then there would be no class action lawsuits. Without them, companies would do whatever they want (they still do, but less often )
