I'd heard of an auto parts class action settlement via FB ads. I have one of these that I saved I think months ago that points to https://www.myautorefund.com/
A quick Google search turns up these, for example:

(this is a local TV station for me)
I plan to do a bit more digging on the domain I put a * next to. I have owned or leased numerous vehicles included and will likely submit a claim somewhere.
FWIW, for class action settlements, I've had settlement amounts ranging from nothing (once it was user error on my part) to once a check for over $3000! This is what I wrote on another forum in 2016:
"The other I got was SHOCKING to me... I recently received a class action settlement check for over $3000! It was involving unauthorized recording of phone calls to certain apartment companies. I did in fact call some of those companies while searching for an apartment. When it looks like I might get some award that's worth my time (e.g. something where the amount is stated or where I can make an estimate and it's isn't crap like a back of blank CD-Rs), I tend to file...
I was amazed to receive a check THAT large. I'm guessing a lot of people didn't file claims."
Thanks, good to know. I also ran across this which gave perspective on how old this one is:

In September 2011, Furukawa Electric Co. of Japan became the first
supplier to plead guilty in the criminal case. Three of its executives
in the U.S. served jail time, and the company agreed to pay a $200
Across the investigation, 49 companies were charged, resulting in 45
plea agreements. Two other companies were acquitted, and charges against
two more remain outstanding, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of
