What is this lawsuit about?
This lawsuit is known as In re Navistar MaxxForce Engines Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, Case No. 1:14-cv-10318. The lawsuit alleges that the Defendants sold or leased 2011-2014 model year vehicles with MaxxForce 11- or 13-liter diesel engines that had a defective EGR emissions system and that if Named Plaintiffs had known of the defect, they would not have purchased or leased their vehicles or would have paid less for the vehicles than they did. Defendants deny all of the allegations in the lawsuit and that they did anything wrong.
