Quote :
Twenty-three defendant groups and their affiliates ("Settling Defendants") have agreed to Settlements resolving claims that they fixed the price of certain vehicle components. This may have caused individuals and businesses to pay more for certain new vehicles and replacement parts. These Settling Defendants deny any claims of wrongdoing.

You may be included if, from 1996 to 2016, you: (1) bought or leased a qualifying new vehicle in the U.S. (not for resale); or (2) bought a qualifying vehicle replacement part (not for resale) from someone other than the manufacturer of the part. In general, qualifying vehicles are four-wheeled passenger automobiles, cars, light trucks, pickup trucks, crossovers, vans, mini-vans, and sport utility vehicles.

In May 2016, settlements with 11 of the Settling Defendants ("Round 1 Settlements), totaling approximately $225 million, received final Court approval. Additional settlements totaling $379,401,268 have now been reached with 12 additional Settling Defendants. Those 12 additional Settling Defendants are called the "Round 2 Settling Defendants," and the settlements with them are called the "Round 2 Settlements." This website contains information about both the Round 1 and Round 2 Settlements. If you file a claim, it will be considered for inclusion in both the Round 1 and Round 2 Settlements.

The Settlements, totaling approximately $604 Million, provide money for consumers in 30 states and the District of Columbia as well as non-monetary relief, including cooperation, and agreements by certain Settling Defendants not to engage in certain conduct for a period of 24 months.

Great, but we consumers will be left with pocket change after dust settles - atypical for such a huge class action.

Tracked down the VIN of each of my new/leased new cars.

Have no idea the purchase date (though I could guess on some and get close)

Also, what constitutes proof of ownership. I usually shred/destroy the sales agreement after a year or two of no longer owning the vehicle. Can I show old insurance cards?

If you still keep property tax records, it should have the VINs.

If you don't know what a property tax is or don't handle it, you're better off finding who took care of paying the annual car tax. Unless you live somewhere that does not have property tax annually, then this method won't help you.

FML, the state of Virginia belongs to non-monetary benefits:

14. What is the non-monetary relief?
With the exception of Leoni, the Settling Defendants have agreed not to engage in certain specified conduct that would violate the antitrust laws that are at issue in these lawsuits for a period of two years. Additionally, all of these Settling Defendants will cooperate with the Plaintiffs in their ongoing litigation against the Non-Settling Defendants.

I have "won" several of these class action lawsuits. I once received a check for I kid you not 25 cents in 2000. It cost them more to mail the check then it did the actual check amount. I "won" another settlement with a phone company they gave me a $10 dollar calling card in 2001.

Their are over 20 states that have this settlement. I did check and my car did qualify for wiper blades. I still own my car and I might put in a claim but I do not expect to get very much back. I would be surprised it was over $10 dollars.
