Help for Audi Owners
"If you are an Audi owner who has been affected by the VW Emissions Scandal, read our quick guide on what The next steps are for claiming compensation...""
Audi has been a subsidiary company of the Volkswagen Group since 1966. A number of its models have been fitted with Volkswagen’s "defeat device" that we argue has allowed vehicles to cheat emissions tests and boast better performance and lower pollutants as a direct result.
Audi’s slogan "vorsprung durch technik" translates into English as "progress through technology". It's disappointing to see that a trusted and popular brand is at the heart of the emissions scandal in more ways than one. It has been widely reported that it was engineers and management from Audi who developed the "defeat device" technology. Some of the senior figures in charge at the time of the use of the technology had come from Audi as well.
A large number of Audi vehicles manufactured between 2009 and 2015 are affected.
Below is a list of the Audi diesel models that may have a "defeat devices" installed:
- Audi A1
- Audi A3 (2010-2015)
- Audi A3 Cabrio (2010-2015)
- Audi A4 (2008-2015)
- Audi A5 (2008-2015)
- Audi A6 (2011-2015)
- Audi A6 Quattro (2014-2016)
- Audi A7 Quattro (2014-2016)
- Audi A8 (2014-2016)
- Audi A8L (2014-2016)
- Audi Q3 (2011-2015)
- Audi Q5 (2009-2012)
- Audi Q5 (2014-2016)
- Audi Q7 (2009-2016)
- Audi TT (2008-2014)
Is your Audi affected by the scandal?
If your Audi is affected, you can claim compensation in the same way that a Volkswagen owner can.
Audi models have been at the front of the queue for the recall fixes, but it has been reported that these fixes appear to be causing further problems with the vehicle.
You can find out if your Audi is affected by registering your 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 have until 26th October to claim as an Audi owner, so get in touch for help and advice today.
