I think we all read something a little different.Thanks for the heads up. I just went and re-read the settlement info. Just to clarify to anyone else reading this....it appears to me that the statement about having to have the dealer verify the complaint symptom only applies to complaints made AFTER November 16, 2018 (when we were notified of the settlement). This is, I believe, a safeguard measure by the court to ensure that people don't attempt to pile up the complaints hoping to get a payout. So any complaint made before 11/16/18 is considered a valid complaint. Any complain made after 11/16/18 must be verified by the dealer in order to qualify. Plus they allow for one additional unverified complaint.
At least that's my I interpretation of the language for what it's worth.
Let me say what I think it means.
Regardless of the dates of the complaints ( most happened early on anyway ) you would need 6 separate times visiting the dealer, and the dealer would need to document ( write on the repair order you were given ) stating that your complaint was valid and that the dealer was able to reproduce your specific condition ... 6 times. Then you need one ( 1 ) additional unverified complaint.
Also, the notice does say those complaints must be on, or before Nov. 16, 2018. Not after that date.
Again, complaints made before Nov. 16, 2018 are only considered valid IF the dealer was able to reproduce, verify and document your complaint.
