    The extra amount assuredly is simple interest.

    Opting out sounds like a good idea until you wait too long and statues of limitations pass by.

    Frankly few attorneys would take this case on an individual basis and they'll cost a pretty penny hourly. Class actions exist for a reason.

    Only winners are the bloodsucking lawyers.

    Don't spend that $20 all in one place!

    I put this money towards FSD on my 2016 Model X.

    Since that is delayed, can I get another 284?

    :D

    I guess I beat you all, $284.XX.

    It is a relief to see it's real. I was gonna shred it, thinking it was a scam LOL!

    Thank you TMC board.

    I got the same 284.22.
    Cool. That means we bought the vehicles about the same time. :cool:

    $284.22 is the highest amount. But this is far from over. This settlement was just for how long your Tesla did not have the AutoPilot features. I purchased FSD as did many of you and if this is not delivered after the first leases start going back you can bet there will be more suits with full refunds and they will have to pay interest, etc.

    I doubt it (in terms of being successful, people will sue for anything). This settlement was due to intermediate loss of preexisting features in the transition from AP1 to SP2. FSD has never existed, nor was it sold with a specific time of delivery. If people were going to sue, those with totaled FSD cars would already be doing so.

    Is consensus that, even if you bear Tesla no ill will, you might as well cash the check because they are already out the money? Who gets the money if you do not cash the check?

    You might as well cash it since not cashing it does not change your status. From: Sheikh, et al. v. Tesla, Inc.
    I would guess that if you do not cash it, it will go your your state's unclaimed property department under your name after some period of time.

    I got my check which was a surprise since I excluded from the lawsuit. I contacted Tesla to ask where I could send them the endorsed check so they may deposit it.

    Very noble of you. I wonder if some of the lawyers would do it also?

    Wouldn't that be nice. It would certainly amount to more than us owners.

    Tesla got back to me and said they actually aren't sure how to handle my check and are getting legal involved.

    First world problem.

    I don't mind taking your $62.00 of $284.22 to make it $222.22 if you really want that number. :rolleyes:

    Interesting, I am in the ~$200 window, and although I meant to remove myself from the suit, I never got around to it. That said, I also have not received a check.

    I wonder if the process is audited?

    I received a notice a few months ago saying i was part of the settlement, so its no surprise when i got the check i knew it was legit. I bet everyone else here got that settlement notice too but thought it was spam and just threw it away :)
