If you have paid out of pocket expenses arising from the repair of the sunroof drain system and/or plenum drain system, cleaning, drying or replacement of carpeting, including padding, and/or repair or replacement of components of the sunroof drain system and/or plenum drain system, because of water entering the passenger compartment through or due to the sunroof drain system or plenum area of a Settlement Class Vehicle (i.e., paid for a “Reimbursable Repair”), you may make a claim for reimbursement. To be eligible for reimbursement, your claim and supporting documentation must be submitted on or before November 26, 2012. Any claims postmarked after November 26, 2012 will not be considered for reimbursement. This period will be extended by up to 15 days in the event the Notice was forwarded to you as a result of your change of address. Audi will not pay any claim for personal injury (including physical, psychological, or mental injury), for death, or for damage to property other than Settlement Class Vehicles, as part of this settlement, because claims of this type are not affected or released in any way by the proposed Settlement.
Claim Documentation - What You Need and How to Get It
To be eligible for reimbursement of a Reimbursable Repair, you must complete the Claim Form, signed under penalty of perjury, postmarked by November 26, 2012, and submit documentation that supports your claim such as valid receipts, invoices, repair orders, or bills, which confirm all of the following: (1) that a Reimbursable Repair was performed in response to a complaint or report of water entry into the passenger compartment of the Settlement Class Vehicles through or due to the sunroof drain system; (2) the cost to you of such Reimbursable Repair; and (3) payment by you for such Reimbursable Repair and the amount thereof. Whenever possible the submitted documentation should itemize the parts and labor costs of the Reimbursable Repair. You may be able to obtain documentation of your Reimbursable Repair by contacting the repair facility or dealer who performed the repairs, your bank or credit card issuer. If you are unable to obtain the required documentation despite a diligent search, you must fully complete, sign and submit the declaration found on the back of the Claim Form, providing all information required under penalty of perjury under Title 18, section 1623 of the United States Code and any applicable state perjury statute. Any and all statements made in such declaration are subject to investigation, which may require testimony under oath by you. Incomplete or inaccurate declarations may not be accepted for reimbursement.
