Dollar General Corp. Motor Oil Marketing and Sales Litigation
Case No. 16-02709-MD-W-GAF
If You Bought Certain Dollar General DG Auto Brand Motor Oil Product(s) Between September 1, 2010 And December 31, 2017, You Could Get a Payment From A Class Action Settlement.
A Settlement has been reached with Dollar General Corporation, Dolgencorp, LLC, and DG Retail, LLC (“Dollar General”) in a Class Action Lawsuit claiming that Dollar General deceptively marketed, advertised, and sold DG Auto motor oils that were obsolete and potentially harmful to automobiles. Dollar General denies any wrongdoing.
Under the Settlement, Dollar General agrees to provide up to a maximum of $28,500,000 to Settlement Class Members who submit Valid Claims. Dollar General also agrees to refrain from selling certain motor oil and to add additional oversight measures.
You are included in the Settlement Class if you live in the United States and purchased any of the following DG Auto motor oils for personal use, not for resale, between September 1, 2010 and December 31, 2017:
DG SAE 10W-30 (SF specification) for use in vehicles manufactured after 1988; and/or
DG SAE 10W-40 (SF specification) for use in vehicles manufactured after 1988; and/or
DG SAE 30 (SA specification) for use in vehicles manufactured after 1930.
