Nissan/Renault Emissions Claim

venus

An introduction to the Nissan/Renault emissions scandal ‘dieselgate’

Evidence suggests that Nissan/Renault installed cheating software into some of their vehicles designed to defeat emissions testing, this ‘defeat device’ falsely reported the vehicles’ emission levels, calculating a lower level of emissions than the actual levels.

The Nissan/Renault case is in its infancy but is expected to follow a similar trajectory to Mercedes and VW. We will notify those who have joined the claim with Venus Legal of any documents required and deadlines, we will keep you updated with any developments.

Please note that you cannot sign up to be represented by more than one law firm; this may result in multiple claims being issued at Court.

Emissions Update February 2024

Please note that we are no longer accepting new clients for this action.

Enter your Vehicle Registration now and we will check if your vehicle is eligible to join the claim.

If you or your business bought or leased diesel Nissan/Renault vehicles manufactured since 2009, you may be eligible to claim compensation.  You can also claim for multiple vehicles, even if you no longer own the vehicles.

Yes, provided that you are the registered keeper, and the finance/lease agreement is in your name, you are entitled to bring a claim if you financed your vehicle with HP/PCP/PCH or lease. 

There is no cost to join the claim; bringing an emissions claim will not cost you anything if you are unsuccessful.  If you win, you keep the majority of the compensation.  Full details in relation to costs and liability are provided in our welcome pack. 

We are not able to comment at this stage on the amount of compensation you will receive if the claim is successful as the claim is still in its infancy.  It is worth noting that a recent out of court settlement saw VW owners in the UK receive an average pay out of more than £2,100.00.  We believe that you have suffered financial loss and we expect the losses for an average vehicle in the claim will be several thousand pounds at least.

Thousands of claims have been issued in the High Court in England and Wales.  We envisage that time limits will soon be set by the Court. We will notify those who have joined the claim with Venus Legal of any documents required and deadlines, we will keep you updated with any developments.
