How to claim for Porsche Eisen IMS Class action Lawsuit Settlement?

The IMS Class Action Lawsuit filed against Porsche Cars North America, Inc. has reached a settlement. According to the lawsuit, the Intermediate Shaft (IMS) used in Porsche 911 and Porsche Boxter vehicles (Model Year 2001 - 2005) is defective. And Plaintiffs assert that an IMS failure could result in catastrophic engine damage, leading to expensive repair bills costing hundreds of dollars. Although Porsche denies any wrong doing, the company has agreed to provide reimbursements for out-of-pocket costs spent on repairs caused by faulty IMS. Moreover, the company has also agreed to pay eligible Class Members a maximum of $200 for documented towing charges and/or rental car fees related to an IMS failure. Thus, no matter whether you’ve purchased or leased a Model Year 2001 - 2005 Porsche Boxster or Porsche 911 vehicle, you are entitled to settlement benefits.
