Sylvania Headlight False Advertising Class Action SettlementPosted on: May 26, 2018, by : xnlamp
$10 settlement? Its a joke! How about a full refund of the purchase price? My SilverStar Ultras lasted 9 months, roughly 400 hours. FYI, that is well below the industry standard of 800-1000 hours for halogens.
I receieved a check in the mail, but the name os completely WRONG, not even close. Whom do I talk to in order to get it reissued? I went to the website and it is down. This seems like a crapshoot to me.
Bought ours in April, burned out yesterday. Looks like Im outside of the claim window.
In regards to the bulbs directly, have had no issues with them and have had them in two vehicle and each for well over a year. Performance is satisfactory and longevity good so far.
It sounds like you had a far more complex issue than the one tackled by this settlement. Regardless, if you were a member of the class by all means contact the administrator to figure out the whereabouts of your little check.
i have purchase slyvania headlights in this time frame.
A full refund would of been nice
He received a check post-mortem because he applied as a class member while he was alive.
I just but silver Star ultra light for Kia optima LX 4 cylinder head lamp when out
the deadline says March 15, 2015 but the claim form says the deadline to file claims has passed. ???? this should be removed from active refunds.
If you did not purchase the bulbs and your name is not Phil just return the check to the sender.
I bought some if these headlights for my jeep
One of the other respondents mentioned installing properly and I agree, if not installed properly for these bulbs or any high intensity bulb, they will fail. i.e. Do not touch the bulbs, wipe clean of oil dirt, seat properly, etc.
SilverStar fog or auxiliary lights.

Why do you reply to say you bought it? It would seem that you would submit a claim and let that be that Plus I miss the humorous quips in the case summary. KCCO
When can we expect a check? I filled out the claim form a while ago.
This settlement was paid a long time ago. Why are you griping about it?
Dont buy this crap brand and dont believe andvance or silvania false advertising they just respond that you wont qualify for something but never will give you a real explanation
I purchased these bulbs for my mazda

Had silverstars in all of my vehicles and never heard anything about this they should take this down my father in less got a check a few days ago he passed away almost 2 years ago how did he get it
I bought one of these and thought it was defective when it died in 3 weeks so I had another one put in. That one lasted a few months. Replaced it for second time with a different brand.
These lights are sub standard. I purchased two for my Nissan Morano and two for my Ford Explorer.
Oh even I got the date wrong March 20th, 2015
i have not received a check or was i notified by the mail. i have an 2001 3500 dodge. last year i had an issue with the brightness of both headlamps. the lights came on but, where not bright and the high beam indicator light on the dash came on. they (bulbs and new head lamp assy) where bought in 2012. the light blub melted the wires and head lamp assy. then finally blew/ melted the fuse along with the wires..and i have not found the recipet. so my lost. but fyi i take ever light and replace them to another brand including my house lost a customer.
Ive purchased 3 sets of sylvainia headlights for each of my cars in the past
, Case No. 2:11-cv-05504 District Court for the District of New Jersey
I have purchased many silverstar bulbs and never had any of them fail or burn out.On my accord they are about 10 years old .Im willing to bet the ones having problems is because you did not install them correctly.when you install these bulbs you cannot touch the bulbs with your hands or fingers because you will leave oily residue which will cause the bulb to burn out.Read the package it says this on the instructions.Also if the bulb you install is not fully in its socket or its housing it will melt anything near it which can result in a fire.
Nonetheless will cash the check, but like many such Class Action suits, my feeling is that this is a overblown, lawyers will make big money (approx. $10 million) and for the most part their is nothing wrong with the bulbs if installed properly. Just away for some lawyers to bring in money and due to the cost of our legal system, easier for Sylvania to settle than to keep paying big money to drag this on through the court systems while paying high legal fees, experts testimony, doing third party testing, etc and than to have the claimants to just file another appeal and drag it on even more.
I encourage you to submit a claim for the Sylvania headlights class action settlement. You dont need a receipt.

I have gone through 3 different sets of Sylvania products. Two sets of silverstars and one set of extravisions. I used them on my 91 jeep cherokee. All bought at Autozone in Taft, CA. The longest run was 8 months on the extravisions. The light output minimal and the pattern was scattered at best. Very disappointed.
I got a card in the mail over a year ago when are they paying
I didnt have burning out problems, but these were no where near as bright as Sylvania claimed they would be.
I have installed silverstar light bulbs on 3 of my vehicles, 1992 honda civic,2000 dodge durango, 2004 honda accord.
I do not remember buying this bulb ,and I received a check payable to Phil Marrs ?
l bought some for 2008 dodger charger and a f-150 ford in july 2012.
So how much of the $30 million will go to the attorneys?
My suburban had these and one of them went out a couple of weeks ago and caught on fire. Now I have $8000 worth of damage. I got the settlement card in the mail last week about the class action thing and thought it was ironic. Has anyone else had a problem with fire from these?
i bought two for the car and for the truck all so one out dont lastlong.
Not Required (If you received a notification in the mail you dont need to submit a claim. You will automatically receive a check)
Were they as bright as claimed? Do not know, I did not put a light meter to them or do a apple to apple comparison against another.
I have bought Cool Blue replacement headlight capsules from Sylvania Headlight
The plaintiffs alleged that the manufacturers of Sylvania headlights overstated the brightness, road visibility and life expectancy of some of its premium headlights. Sylvania reportedly sold as many as 60 million replacement headlights during the Class Period The defendants deny the allegations and stand by their advertising. The defendants however, have agreed to settle out of court to avoid the expense and uncertainty associated with a long litigation process.
According to their website this class action was finalized on June 3rd 2015. The defendant has 90 days to send payments out.
How do you make a claim? I never got anything about it and I purchased four or five sets.
I received a check today for $11.82 that should cover half of a light bulb. Lol
Got my check today 8-14-15 eleven dollers and seventy cents woo hoo i think a stick in the eye is better
