The firm has been litigating a putative class action involving a potential defect in the PRIMARY TIMING CHAIN ASSEMBLIES LAND ROVER vehicles, model years 2012 through 2014, equipped with a 5.0 liter direct injection engine.  Class vehicles include the LR4 and Range Rover Sport vehicles.

The suit has been resolved on a class-wide basis and Preliminary Approval has been granted by the Court.  The Settlement will take effect upon final approval being granted.  The Class Settlement notices will be disseminated on or before December 4, 2021.  Under the Settlement, Class Vehicles which experience a timing chain failure within 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first, would be entitled to file a claim for partial reimbursement.  The amount of such reimbursement is dependent on mileage and years-in-service.  There is also a certain percentage of reimbursement for engine damage caused by the timing chain failure. Claims will also require submission of proof of payment, proof of ownership or leasing, proof of the defect failure occurring within the time and mileage requirement and proof that the owner/lessee has adhered to the maintenance requirements.
