Hello and thank you for your question.
A check of the Austlii database revealed no indication of such a class action.
From a review of media reports it appears that a class action was contemplated following the death of a woman in an accident involving a VW, however, the firm in question appears to have determined not to pursue such an action:

Moreover it appears the coroner cleared VW of responsiblity for the accident:

I trust the above assists your understanding.
Good luck and please rate my answer.
