Case No. CV-22-968540 in the Court of Common Pleas, Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Case Home

If your vehicle was Repossessed and Sold by Mazda Financial Services in the State of Ohio, You Could Get Benefits from a Class Action Settlement.

The Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas authorized this class action notice.
This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

  • The Settlement resolves a class action lawsuit against Mazda Financial Services (“MFS”).
  • The lawsuit alleges that MFS’s notices regarding the repossession and sale of vehicles were deficient under applicable law. MFS denies that the notices were deficient.
  • The Settlement avoids costs and risks to the parties from continuing the lawsuit, and relieves class members of the obligation to pay the balance remaining on their accounts.
