This litigation relates to Oxygen Sensors purchased directly from a Defendant.

“Oxygen Sensors” refers to the electronic sensors located before and after the catalytic converter in the exhaust system used to measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust. Oxygen Sensors provide signals or data to the automobile’s engine management computer, which then adjusts the ratio of air/fuel injected into the engine to compensate for excess air or excess fuel.

Proposed settlements have been reached with the NGK and DENSO Defendants. Under the terms of the proposed settlements, NGK will pay $600,000 and DENSO will pay $100,000.

The Court has granted preliminary approval of the proposed settlements with the NGK and DENSO Defendants and will hold a hearing on final approval of these proposed settlements and related matters on September 15, 2022. Click here to see more information about the NGK and DENSO settlements.

If you purchased Oxygen Sensors in the United States directly from either Defendant during the period from January 1, 2000, through February 4, 2019, you may be a member of the NGK or DENSO Settlement Classes. If you remain in the NGK or DENSO Settlement Classes and you wish to share in the settlement proceeds attributable to that settlement, you must complete and submit a valid Claim Form no later than September 30, 2022.
