As thousands of individuals with Audi or Volkswagen diesel vehicles face financial damages stemming from the recent emissions scandal, the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are pursuing individual and class action lawsuits on behalf of TDI “Clean Diesel” vehicle owners throughout the U.S.

Volkswagen has admitted that it installed software designed to cheat on EPA emissions tests.

Known as a “defeat device,” the algorithm was designed to detect when the vehicles are being tested and reduce emissions levels. However, once the tests are over, the vehicles emit dangerously high levels of air pollution. Experts point out that if the measures were always running, the performance of the vehicles would be severely impacted.

Most consumers purchased Audi and Volkswagen TDI “Clean Diesel” vehicles because they thought they were getting an environmentally friendly and energy efficient vehicle, paying substantial premiums for the vehicle. However, it is now clear that these consumers were defrauded and are left with vehicles that have suffered a sudden and extreme drop in resale value.

Our lawyers are reviewing potential Volkswagen diesel emissions lawsuits for individuals who purchased any of the following vehicles:

  • 2010-2015 Audi A3 TDI Clean Diesel
  • 2012-2015 VW Beetle TDI Clean Diesel
  • 2010-2015 VW Golf TDI Clean Diesel
  • 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen TDI Clean Diesel
  • 2009-2015 VW Jetta TDI Clean Diesel
  • 2009-2014 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI Clean Diesel
  • 2012-2015 VW Passat TDI Clean Diesel

Financial compensation may be available through a Volkswagen lawsuit as a result of misleading or outright fraudulent statements made to buyers, which claimed that the VW diesel engines were environmentally safe, low pollutant emitting vehicles, when in truth the company knew since at least 2009 that they had actually designed vehicles to cheat air quality tests.

    I was a buyer of 2013 diesel Voltswagon it was in shop all the time I pd out money for repairs ! Then it kept breaking down so I took it to the shop and said I want to trade it in ! The owner was happy to get me in the gas car I chose but they then added the diesel on to my note so I was wondering what I could do about this since I’m still paying for the diesel ? Can you help me ?

    We have a 2009 Volkswagon Jetta, we filed the necessary paperwork but fill as if we are in the stalled lane phase. Our DMV tags were due and we paid our fees, however our car will not pass smog because of this scandal. What is the public to do if we can’t even drive our cars?

    After I got a letter form VW stating they had a fix for my 2010 tdi Jetta, I took it to the dealer for the repairs. They had the car three weeks and did not fix it. VW told me to go get the car and take it to another dealer. I took it to Galpin VW in Van Nuys, Ca. They told me because of what the first dealer did, the particulate filter could be plug up and the car was no longer safe to drive. They also said VW has no fix for my car despite what the letter said. (This is where my story gets good). The dealer said VW told them to CONFISCATED MY CAR !!!! I now have a loaner ( that I hate ) and I don’t know when I will get my car back IF EVER !! I plan to retire soon, and I don”t need a car payment. That is why I didn’t do the buy back. Now I guess I need legal help. Does anyone have an idea where I should go with this ? I’m not sure who the hell to trust.
