Damage claim and the right to restitution
Don’t wait until your Diesel is worth nothing! Claim your purchase price or an adequate new vehicle now. We enforce your rights against the car manufacturer, which built in the fraud software and therefore damaged you as a customer.
Buyers of a Diesel vehicle with built-in fraud software have the right to rescind the contract and return the car to the manufacturer. The buyer receives back the purchase price including interest, after the deduction of a small compensation for the kilometers driven. Due to the fact that diesel vehicles experience a continuous loss in value, our recommendation is as follows: Claim your purchase price for returning the car or demand an adequate vehicle that respects current emission standards.
Nevertheless, if it is absolutely necessary for you to keep your car, you can claim at least compensation for the loss in value, possible mobility impairments and other imminent losses.
Take action against the imminent loss in value of your car, driving bans and possible withdrawal of the operating permit.
