Mercedes-Benz Emissions Fraud Lawsuits

Motley Rice attorneys are reviewing potential economic loss cases involving Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC “Clean Diesel” vehicles with emissions systems allegedly designed to defraud regulators, similar to those at issue in the Volkswagen emissions fraud litigation.

Mercedes-Benz is alleged to have installed software to disengage emissions controls when temperatures are less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit. It is believed that customers were deceived into paying a premium for “clean diesel” cars that allegedly emit pollutants well beyond the government standard.

We are no longer accepting economic loss claims for Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC “Clean Diesel” vehicles.

Affected Mercedes-Benz vehicles powered by BlueTEC diesel-fueled engines include:
