    OK, but theres no such thing... they printed it wrong or whatever, and I certainly won't hack on you for that.

    Problems with Volvo across the board mainly the engine problems and their maintenance particular the D16. They have a stack of complaints ranging from EGR Valves Coolers Turbos Injectors and several others.

    Mass actions
    In a class action, the plaintiff seeks court approval to litigate on behalf of a group of similarly-situated persons. Not every plaintiff looks for, or could obtain, such approval. As a procedural alternative, plaintiff's counsel may attempt to sign up every similarly-situated person that counsel can find as a client. Plaintiff's counsel can then join the claims of all of these persons in one complaint, a so-called "mass action," hoping to have the same efficiencies and economic leverage as if a class had been certified.
    Because mass actions operate outside the detailed procedures laid out for class actions, they can pose special difficulties for both plaintiffs, defendants, and the court. For example, settlement of class actions follows a predictable path of negotiation with class counsel and representatives, court scrutiny, and notice. There may not be a way to uniformly settle all of the many claims brought via a mass action. Some states permit plaintiff's counsel to settle for all the mass action plaintiffs according to a majority vote, for example. Other states, such as New Jersey, require each plaintiff to approve the settlement of that plaintiff's own individual claims.

    Wikipedia isn't a reliable source... Wikipedia is contributed to by regular folks... in fact, you or I can establish our own definitions of anything.

    That being said, after 10 years as an expert, and talking to one of my employers, attorney of 21 years... and he's (nor I) never heard of a "mass" suit certified by any judge.

    I guess you have never heard the term of Mass Tort Litigation?
