What is this lawsuit about?
The lawsuit alleges that the Defendants (Navistar Canada ULC, Navistar, Inc., Navistar International Corporation, and Harbour International Trucks Ltd.) sold or leased Class Vehicles with defective Advanced Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) emission systems. Class Vehicles are 2011-2014 model year Navistar trucks equipped with a MaxxForce 11-, 13-, or 15-litre engine.
