Volkswagen Diesel Emissions Lawsuit


Volkswagen manufactured diesel vehicles it knew would not pass emission standards and installed a defeat device,   Volkswagen ran television commercials for the past several years touting its “clean diesel” vehicles. It wasn’t until the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) threatened to withhold certification of the company’s 2016 diesel models that the company admitted to installing the defeat devices. The following vehicles are covered,

•2009-2015 Jetta TDI

•2009-2014 Jetta TDI Sportwagen

•2012-2015 Beetle TDI

•2012-2015 Beetle TDI Convertible

•2010-2015 Audi A3 TDI

•2010-2015 Golf TDI

•2015 Golf TDI Sportwagen

•2012-2015 Passat TDI

At least 30 Volkswagen managers are reported to have played a role in using software to cheat on emissions testing on more than 10 million diesel cars, Der Spiegel reports
