Auto Parts Class Action

Automatic Transmission Fluid Warmers

This class action alleges that the defendants unlawfully conspired to rig bids for and artificially inflate the prices of automatic transmission fluid warmers incorporated into new vehicles and sold to dealers and consumers across Canada from November 1, 2002 to March 1, 2010.

Automatic transmission fluid warmers are devices located within an automotive vehicle’s engine that improve fuel economy by warming transmission fluid to lower its viscosity, allowing the transmission fluid to flow more easily.
