There has been a finding reportedly made in South Korea in relation to Mercedes-Benz and Stellantis exhaust gas emissions being “rigged”, the media is reporting.
Thousands of vehicles are said to be affected for models of the two brands. Fines could now be issued, and mandatory recalls may also be initiated.
Although this is a story from another continent, it serves as an important reminder as to how the emissions issues are far from over. A great deal of work still needs to be done to get to the bottom of the allegations that dozens of carmakers are facing.
Opel has been fined for emissions issues in Germany to the tune of $75m, according to European news agencies. This is another fine in the bag over the ongoing emissions problems that have plagued the car industry for many years now.
According to reports, Opel has been fined for emissions issues that are not related to alleged illegal defeat device technology. What the fine is for is actually is in relation to reportedly providing vehicles that were producing higher levels of emissions than had been reported to German regulators.
Opel is one of the brands that are a part of the Stellantis N.V group, with related brands that include Peugeot, Fiat, Citroën, and Vauxhall. The latter brand of Vauxhall is essentially the twin sister brand that we have here in the UK, so they are effectively the same brand really.

Our emissions group actions are important for a number of reasons, both in terms of punishments for alleged breaches of the law and how this can impact us all, and in terms of justice for consumers.
We are more aware than ever when it comes to the climate emergency and the global challenges we face when it comes to our planet and our environment. Emissions laws and regulations are in place for very good and very important reasons, so any situation where carmakers have breached the law should be met with full and proper punishment.
This is what we want to achieve as part of our emissions class actions, as well as justice for victims who have been affected from a consumer perspective which is what we can achieve within the confines of the law.
Several years have passed since the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal first hit the headlines, revealing that one of the world’s biggest carmakers may have been engaging in the deceitful manipulation of emissions controls in their vehicles. As one of the first firms to bring claims against Volkswagen, we are now investigating a string of other car manufacturers in relation to allegations of emissions cheating. As such, it is incredibly important that those affected seek legal advice before the emissions claim deadlines pass.
Whilst the deadline to join the Volkswagen group action has now passed, there may still be a chance to claim for affected owners of other diesel vehicles. We are investigating many others such as Porsche, Mercedes, Nissan and Renault, and many other carmakers. By signing up as soon as possible, you can look to ensure that you do not miss out on the opportunity to recover compensation. Some deadlines may have already passed, which is why we always recommend that you start a claim as soon as you possibly can.
As pioneers of emissions litigation, we have developed expertise in this specialist area of consumer claims. As such, we have the know-how to fight for the compensation you deserve. You can use our online form to register your claim today.
Right now, there are lots of questions being asked of multiple carmakers as to whether so-called “thermal windows” are being used as a loophole to cheat emissions regulations.
The idea that carmakers could be so brazen as to cheat emissions regulations first came into the limelight in 2015 when the original Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines. Over the last six years, dozens more vehicle manufacturers have been scrutinised and have faced similar allegations of cheating.
Whilst carmakers strongly deny that they have done anything wrong, there is evidence that could suggest not all is above board. Your Lawyers – The Car Emissions Lawyers – as pioneers of High Court action against VW in 2016, has vowed to leave no stone unturned in efforts to get to the bottom of the allegations made. As part of our legal actions where we represent thousands of people for emissions compensation claims, we are looking into whether thermal windows are being abused.
Air pollution is serious, and we were reminded why when, in the first ruling of its kind, air pollution was listed as a cause of death for Ella Adoo-Kissi-Debrah, a nine-year-old girl who tragically passed away due to an asthma attack in 2013. The Coroner’s court reportedly ruled that air pollution “made a material contribution” to her death, disproving an initial 2014 ruling that named “acute respiratory failure” as the cause of death.
The landmark verdict was notable for clean air campaigners who have long recognised the serious issues of pollution at the core of London’s air problems. In fact, it is a nationwide issue of social injustice, with some research indicating that polluted air is significantly more concentrated in Britain’s most deprived areas.
The case of Ella Adoo-Kissi-Debrah clearly demonstrates how ignorance can cause pollution problems to develop unchecked, with fatal consequences. At The Car Emissions Lawyers, we have spent years fighting to hold car manufacturers to account for their alleged violations of emissions regulations, so we are all too familiar with attempts by people in positions of power to get away with dangerous levels of pollutant production.
Fresh allegations of “defeat devices” in Mercedes vehicles are being reported as the ongoing emissions scandals continue to hit the headlines.
We have been representing clients for emissions cases since the very beginning in 2015, and we were the first firm in England and Wales to take VW to the High Court in January 2016. Since then, we have launched dozens of actions against more carmakers as we continue to investigate the numerous allegations that manufacturers are facing.
These fresh allegations come out from Germany and add to those that Daimler/Mercedes, and others, are already facing.
Jaguar Land Rover is one of a number of notable car manufacturers to have been accused of manipulating its vehicles to cheat emissions tests. While the majority of carmakers have been associated with allegations of the excessive production of NOx emissions, it is also alleged that Jaguar Land Rover vehicles may have been emitting excessive carbon dioxide. The car owners affected by the carmaker’s alleged emissions issues may be eligible to make Jaguar Land Rover emissions compensation claims.
As with others, the carmaker strongly denies they have done anything wrong.
In 2015, news of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal spread across the globe amid allegations that Volkswagen had manipulated emissions controls in its diesel vehicles. This was believed to have been done in order to pass regulatory tests when, in fact, some cars had been producing volumes of NOx (nitrogen oxide) gas that appeared to break emissions regulations. In response, we began a group action against Volkswagen, and initiated High Court proceedings against the company in early 2016. It was later ruled that Volkswagen had indeed used software that amounted to a defeat device, and now we want to help other victims to claim against other car manufacturers who are suspected of similar alleged behaviour
Since the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines in 2015, a number of other carmakers have been subjected to accusations of emissions fraud. Fiat Chrysler emissions are under scrutiny over allegations suggesting that the FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Group could be involved in the use of illegal defeat devices as a means of cheating emissions tests. Like other carmakers, they strongly deny that this is the case.
In our view, the ongoing diesel emissions scandals could represent one of biggest violations of consumer rights ever seen, with potentially millions of car owners who could be affected internationally. We immediately saw that the Volkswagen scandal had breached the trust invested in the company by so many customers, and so we initiated High Court action against the company in January 2016 soon after the allegations hit the headlines.
Having played a pioneering role in the Volkswagen Group Litigation Order (GLO) case, we now want to ensure that all those affected by emissions scandals have a chance to claim compensation. Our experience has given us the strength to hold huge corporations to account. Pursuing group actions, we bring the strength of numbers to our fight against carmakers. You can find out if you are eligible for a Fiat Chrysler claim today via our online form here now.
Since 2015, there have been many allegations against carmakers regarding the emissions produced by diesel cars, with a number of manufacturers being accused of deliberately manipulating vehicles to cheat emissions tests using defeat device technology. It is alleged that many of the accused carmakers made use of technology that could amount to a defeat device in order to covertly bypass emissions standards.
Many consumers will have heard of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal, but they may not know exactly how the well-known brand was seemingly able to get away with producing such huge amounts of dangerous emissions. Volkswagen was the first carmaker to be implicated in the 2015 defeat devices scandals, and the allegations have since spread across the car manufacturing industry, suggesting that many more carmakers (if not all) may have made use of technology to cheat emissions regulations.
Your Lawyers, as one of the first firms to take on compensation claims for car owners affected by the Volkswagen scandal, are now investigating dozens of well-known car brands in relation to potential emissions cheating. We want to help as many affected car owners to claim as possible, and you can check your eligibility for a claim here now to see if you can benefit from our No Win, No Fee claims representation.
Carlos Ghosn has recently spoken out to deny responsibility for allegations over cheating emissions tests, following serious allegations against Renault. The former executive of the two car brands Renault and Nissan, as well as the ex-chief of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, reportedly fled Japan back in 2019 after he was arrested for the alleged misuse of company funds.
The controversy surrounding Ghosn’s exit from Japan was, however, not the subject of his public statement. He was understood to be being questioned by investigators in direct relation to the wider “dieselgate” scandals. The wave of allegations relating to emissions fraud began in 2015, when Volkswagen was first accused of using illegal defeat devices to manipulate emissions controls in its diesel vehicles.
Ghosn himself may have a lot to answer for given his prior status as the head of three well-known car brands, which have since been subjected to accusations of cheating. While unrelated, the Japanese charges against him certainly cast doubt over this, but it remains to be seen whether he, Renault, or Nissan are responsible for any wrongdoing. Allegations of cheating are being firmly denied.
