Audi admits to another 60,000 vehicles being recalled
Audi has admitted that another 60,000 vehicles are being recalled following further probes into so-called “defeat devices” being fitted into more vehicles than previously confirmed.
The models reportedly affected are the Audi A6 and the Audi A7 that are fitted with a particular type of diesel engine. Germany’s KBA previously requested a hearing because of suspicions more models were fitted with illegal defeat devices.
The news of the wider Audi recall will no doubt increase the pressure of the headache that parent company Volkswagen has been suffering since the breaking of the “dieselgate” scandal we’re taking action on.
It feels like it has been scandal after scandal for Volkswagen. Things seem to have only got worse since the initial announcement that they had cheated emissions testing. We have the refusal to compensate UK victims, the massive death toll scientist believe is attributed to the NOx emissions scandal, criminal probes, arrests and prison sentences, ‘MonkeyGate’, and now even bigger recalls.
It’s thought that the latest increased Audi recall may cost the automotive giant an additional 30 million Euros as they continue to pay for the massive human and environmental scandal they’re responsible for. They must not be allowed to get away with what they have done, which is why we’ve been taking action since the very beginning of the news breaking here in the UK.
UK victims chance to claim ending soon
UK victims of the Volkswagen emissions scandal only have a small window of opportunity to make their claim if they have not yet signed up to the action.
The formal deadline to claim is October this year, but we will be closing our books on new cases far sooner than that.
If you have yet to sign up to our Claimant Group, you must take action as soon as you can – we really are now mere months from the deadline!
Do not miss out.
