Welcome to the Information Website for the Callen v. Mercedes-Benz Settlement.
If you have purchased or leased in the United States a Model Year 2010 to 2016 212 E-Class Mercedes-Benz vehicle originally equipped with Burl Walnut interior trim, you could get benefits from a class action settlement.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit alleging that the “Burl Walnut Trim” available as an original, interior trim option for model year 2010 to 2016 212 E-Class Mercedes-Benz vehicles is defective in that it substantially fades, grows discolored, and becomes cloudy over time. Defendants Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC deny the allegations in the lawsuit and deny they acted improperly or did anything wrong.
The Settlement Class includes all current owners, former owners, current lessees, and former lessees of model year 2010 to 2016 212 E-Class Mercedes-Benz vehicles purchased or leased in the United States and originally equipped with Burl Walnut or Burred Walnut interior trim (collectively, “Burl Walnut Trim”) with reimbursement for Qualified Past Repairs and coverage for Qualified Future Repairs addressing fading, discoloration, or development of a cloudy appearance not caused by external influences such as chemical exposure or harsh or abrasive cleaners and not otherwise falling into an exclusion from coverage unrelated to ultraviolet radiation exposure set forth in the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained on this website. Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act. Read the Frequently Asked Questions carefully.
