A federal judge has given preliminary approval to settling a class-action suit over transmission problems on about 64,000 of Audi’s most popular models.
The settlement covers anyone in the United States who leased or bought from Audi a 2002-6 A4 or A6 model with a continuously variable automatic transmission.
The preliminary approval was given March 11 by Judge A. Howard Matz of the United States District Court for the Central District of California. He scheduled a hearing for September when any complaints about the settlement would be considered and final approval could be given.
The suit – Anna Sadowska and Yanick Godbout v. Volkswagen Group of America – was filed in January 2011.
