Volkswagen, Audi headlights
A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit that alleges that some “high-intensity discharge” headlights on Audi A4 and Volkswagen Touareg vehicles can flicker or shut off unexpectedly while the cars are being driven. The settlement applies to A4 vehicles made in model years 2005 and 2006 and Touareg vehicles made in model years 2004 to 2007, according to a website set up to handle claims.
The defendant, Volkwagen Group of America, denies the claims and maintains that the headlights work properly.
Consumers may be eligible for a five-year warranty for the headlights or reimbursement in cases where vehicle owners had to pay for the headlights to be repaired or replaced within 50,000 miles, according to classactionrebates.com.
Consumers must provide proof if they seek reimbursement. A warranty can be granted without proof.
The deadline to file a claim is Dec. 3.
