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.
