Volkswagen Diesel Emissions Lawsuits
Volkswagen (VW) has set aside $7.2 billion to cover the cost of fixing cars outfitted with a defeat device designed to fraudulently pass vehicle emission tests. Volkswagen Group of America’s chief executive even admitted the company “totally screwed up.” Let our attorneys help you protect your rights as a consumer by contacting our firm today.
Volkswagen’s Not So “Clean Diesel” Vehicles
Even as Volkswagen produced diesel vehicles it knew would not pass emission standards without the defeat device, it continued to run television commercials touting its “clean diesel” technology. Many consumers even paid a premium for their “clean diesel” vehicle. 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. According to the EPA, VW could be liable for billions of dollars in penalties for installing the software in over 500,000 VW, Porsche, and Audi vehicles sold in the US.
