In yet another major automaker controversy, VW has admitted that it equipped almost 500,000 vehicles in the U.S. and 5 million worldwide with “defeat devices” that allow its vehicles to secretly turn off pollution controls when the car is being driven down the road.  When the software is turned off, the cars emit pollutant gases into the air, including nitrogen oxide in amounts as much as 40 percent higher than emissions standards allow.  But the software turns the devices on when the car is undergoing an emissions test.

The U.S. vehicles presently in question are the diesel VW Jetta, Beetle, Golf, and Passat and the Audi A3 model year 2009 and newer, but we expect the list of vehicles to increase as this latest automaker scam is exposed. 

It is time for corporations to be held accountable like the rest of us.  If you have one of these vehicles and would like to stand up against automaker fraud like this, please Contact Us.
