Did you purchase a Car from Volkswagen since 2009?
Volkswagen has been advertising since 2009 that its cars have superior gas mileage and less unhealthy emissions than similar vehicles. Contrary to Volkswagen’s promotions that its vehicles were “green,” testing shows its “CleanDiesel” cars do not deliver the low emissions advertised and promised, and some of its gasoline vehicles do not deliver the mileage advertised and promised.
As reported on September 18, 2015 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in a formal Notice of Violation, Volkswagen programmed its “CleanDiesel” vehicles to emit less emissions during emissions testing. However, when testing was not being conducted, the “CleanDiesel” cars emitted up to 40 times the amount of nitrogen oxide permitted under U.S. laws.
On November 2, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a Second Notice of Violation expanding the number and types of diesel vehicles with “defeat devices” used to render inoperative the vehicles’ emission control systems that exist to comply with federal emissions standards.
On November 3, 2015, numerous new agencies reported that Volkswagen issued a statement that it discovered additional cheating on the emissions and fuel consumption of certain other vehicles sold in the U.S. and abroad during its “comprehensive investigations” it promised to do following the emergence of its “CleanDiesel” scandal.
Volkswagen owners paid extra for the better levels of emissions, horsepower and gas mileage promised. Reprogramming to make the emissions comply with U.S. laws will likely reduce the vehicles’ horsepower and gas mileage, causing
lower resale or trade-in values.
