*** UPDATE: WHAT DOES DAIMLER HAVE TO HIDE? ***
In one of our lawsuits against Daimler, the Bayreuth Regional Court ordered that Daimler must present the official recall notice as well as the corresponding clearance notices from the Federal Motor Transport Authority. Daimler (of course) did not react to this and let the deadline pass without success. Specifically, it is about an affected Mercedes Vito with an illegal defeat device.
After Daimler bowed to pressure from the Bayreuth Regional Court, the KBA presented the recall notice. The amazing thing about this is that Daimler blackened all relevant passages Has! The question arises: What does Daimler have to hide?

Ask & Answers to the emissions scandal
I have received a letter from KBA - how should I do?
If you have received a letter from the KBA (Federal Motor Transport Authority), you should contact our office. Because it is advisable to wait with the software update first. We will also check your case for you free of charge and without obligation and let you know whether you should install the update.
I want to defend myself against the emissions scandal - what are my chances?
Your chances of success depend largely on the time of purchase, the make, model and engine of your car. The courts judge mostly different. We would be happy to explain this to you in a free phone call.
I don't have legal expenses insurance - is it worth filing a lawsuit?
In many cases it is worth filing a lawsuit without legal expenses insurance. We also work closely with a litigation financier who acts like a kind of legal protection insurance for you. So you don't have to worry about legal fees or court costs.
I want to take action against the manufacturer - what do I have to do?
We recommend the following procedure:
- Arrange a free, no-obligation call us.
- Send us your vehicle registration document, vehicle invoice and the details of your legal protection insurance (if available).
Our lawyers will examine your case individually and will contact you. If your case is promising, we will proceed as follows:
- We carry out a coverage request with your legal protection or request coverage from our litigation financier.
- With positive feedback we write to the manufacturer and ask him to take back the defective vehicle.
- If the manufacturer then do not respond, we will submit without delay a lawsuit against this.
Do I have to return my car if I complain?
Our claim is aimed at the reversal of the purchase contract. This means that you have to return the vehicle, but receive back your purchase price minus a usage fee. However, the automobile manufacturers often try to compare each other. In this case, the comparisons stipulate that you keep the car and get a part of the purchase price refunded.
What is the usage compensation?
The compensation for use is calculated using the following formula:
Gross purchase price * driven kilometers / expectable remaining power
Example: Let's assume you drive a car with a purchase price of € 35.000. You bought this as a new car with 0 KM and have driven 100.000 KM so far. Then the calculation looks like this:
€ 35.000 * 100.000 KM / 300.000 KM = 11.666,67 €
This means you would need in an action against the manufacturer compensation for use of 11.666,67 € get credit. You get in our sample calculation so 23.333,33 € by the manufacturer back (€ 35.000,00 - 11.666,67 €).
As expectable rest mileage we put 300.000 KM based. This mileage is based on the latest rulings by the BGH and is therefore to be used as a reliable value. Some firms also accept a value of 500.000 KM or no compensation for use. This is possible (in theory), but not enforceable from our experience and frivolous.
