Volkswagen has admitted to cheating in emissions tests with some of its diesel models. These VW TDI’s are advertised as “clean diesel.” They were sold touting great mileage and very low emissions without sacrificing performance. The problem is that they lied with the emissions part. As a result, many Americans have VW diesel cars that don’t meet emissions requirements.
Class action lawsuits against Volkswagen are moving forward. Those who are effected by VW’s actions should assert their rights and join the lawsuit.
Aside from higher emissions, there is nothing about the Volkswagen scandal that points to issues with safety. You may want to avoid starting up your car in an enclosed space, but drivability has not been compromised.
Many VW TDI models are likely to be recalled. This would consist of bringing the car into line with emissions standards. The problem is that doing so will seriously compromise performance.
Not all models will be required to undergo changes. There are currently no known issues with the VW models that take regular unleaded gasoline. Many of the Turbo Diesel models (also known as the TDI line), however, will be subjected to recall requirements. Owners of these models will likely have no choice but to sacrifice the performance they’ve enjoyed.
The following vehicles are likely to be part of the VW recall:
