Help for Audi Owners
"If you are an Audi owner who has been affected by the VW Emissions Scandal then read our quick guide on what to do next to claim for compensation..."
Audi: an established and often luxury brand that has been popular for decades.
Their slogan "vorsprung durch technik" is usually translated into English as "progress through technology". Sadly, though, they are at the heart of this monumental scandal in more ways than one. It has been widely reported that it was engineers and management from Audi who were the brains behind the so-called "defeat device" technology, and some of the senior figures in charge at the time of the use of the technology had come from Audi as well.
The Audi brand has been a subsidiary company of Volkswagen since 1966. A lot of their models have the Volkswagen engines in them that are fitted with the so-called "defeat device" software that we argue have been cheating emissions tests to boast better performance and lower pollutants than they may actually offer.
A lot of Audi vehicles ranging from manufacturing dates between 2009 and 2015 are affected. It is diesel engines that are affected and the models that may have the defeat devices inside of them are:
- Audi A1
- Audi A3
- Audi A4
- Audi A5
- Audi A6
- Audi TT
- Audi Q3
- Audi Q5
Is your Audi affected by the scandal?
If your Audi is affected by the scandal then you can make a claim for compensation in the same way that a Volkswagen owner can. The vehicles are thought to be fitted with defeat devices in the same way the Volkswagen ones are, so you are fully entitled to claim as well.
You should already have received numerous letters from Audi, and Audi models have so far been at the front of the queue for the recall fixes, which we have discovered may be causing further problems for vehicles.
You can find out if your Audi is affected by registering a case with us. The best way to do this is to locate your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) which is usually located on the windscreen of the vehicle; on the inside of the driver’s door; or often in any official documentation like a log book or service book. It can also be located using the MMI system under “Car Setting.”
It should look something like this; WVWZZZ1JZXW000010.
You can still claim as an Audi owner so get in touch for help and advice today.
