We are sorry but you are not able to join this claim due to the dates you owned your Mercedes.

If you acquired your vehicle after the Mercedes emissions scandal came to light on or around 23 May 2018 it might be argued that you would be expected to know that Mercedes vehicles were affected when you acquired your vehicle and your potential claim in deceit may fail.

If you ceased owning the vehicle before the Mercedes emissions scandal came to light and we believe the value of your claim will be too low to justify making the claim.

Although we are unable to act on your behalf, other lawyers may take a different view and your claim may be able to be included in the proposed Group Action. There are time limits to bringing a claim such as this; not complying with them could mean you lose the right to claim. If you wish to pursue this claim you should contact other lawyers immediately.

We have made this decision using an automated decision-making system that takes into account the information you provided. If you wish to appeal the decision then please email us at mercedes.portalsupport2@slatergordon.co.uk
