Additional car models may be added to this list as our investigations continue.
The legal proceedings are funded by a third party funder. You will not have to pay anything to assert your rights.
Only if we manage to get you financial compensation, you will pay a fee to the funder of up to 27.5% (VAT included, if applicable) of the financial compensation. This percentage can also be lower, depending on various circumstances.
In order to represent your interests, we will need your VIN number as well as proof of ownership and ID. Your VIN number can be found on your vehicle itself and on registration and sales documents. You will have to upload a scanned copy of a document showing the VIN number when signing up and, preferably, a document evidencing the purchase of the car or the lease. You will also need to upload some form of identification to prove you are, in fact, you.

No. The statutes of limitations differ in various countries in Europe, and a registration with the Foundation will not by definition interrupt the statute of limitation for car owners who purchased or leased their vehicle outside the Netherlands. The Foundation will at the same time do everything it reasonably can in order to interrupt the statute of limitation on your behalf, on a best effort basis. If you bought or leased your car outside The Netherlands, you should take action to prevent your claim from being time barred.
