The Car Emissions Lawyers are representing eligible owners for Fiat Chrysler emissions compensation claims who have come forward and started their case.
For some, it is estimated that eligible victims could claim up to the full purchase price of their vehicle under CPUT (Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading 2008) regulations.
Legal precedents mean that some victims could receive up to 100% purchase price of their vehicle if the manufacturer has engaged in ‘very serious’ prohibitive practices. That means victims could receive tens of thousands of pounds, depending on the make and model of their vehicle. Presently, the carmaker denies that they have done anything wrong, so the action we are taking is to find out whether or not there has been any behaviour that amounts to cheating emissions regulations or not.

If you have been affected by the Porsche scandal, you could be eligible to make a Porsche emissions compensation claim with the Car Emissions Lawyers now.
Following the Volkswagen ‘Dieselgate’ scandal that broke in 2015, it has been alleged that a number of car manufacturers are following the same pattern, possibly using a form of ‘defeat device’ software to trick emissions tests. Whilst car manufacturers are not admitting to the use of such devices, with most having strongly denied allegations that they have faced, we believe Porsche (along with others) may have used such devices.
Volkswagen also refuted claims that they were using defeat devices, but the high Court has found that they were used in a number of models. We believe this to be the same with Porsche and would like to help all individuals affected make a Porsche emissions compensation claim.

The importance of emissions regulations cannot be understated, and we are only fighting the court battles that we are because the law has not been adhered to.
In the last few decades, we have been able to achieve huge reductions in emissions thanks to new technology. A lot of this is down to EU emission regulations, and it is important for all carmakers to follow them.
A key reason as to why there are emissions regulations in place is to keep people healthy and to help the environment stay protected. NOx can affect the tropospheric ozone that we breathe, and pollution in the air can lead to a decrease in vegetation growth and a reduction in crop yields.

Your Lawyers – The Car Emission Lawyers – are representing UK clients who have been affected emissions scandals, and you can sign-up for a Nissan and Renault emissions claim here now.
Many carmakers around the world are facing legal actions and penalty fines, with some already settled and issued, over emissions problems and irregularities. Two of the latest to be investigated here in the UK are Renault and Nissan, part of the Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance. The South Korean government banned the sale of some models from several carmakers that included vehicles manufactured by the Alliance, and recalls have previously been initiated.
In the UK, we are potentially at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to these particular manufacturers. Owners can now sign-up for a Nissan and Renault emissions claims here.

The European Commission currently has tight emissions tests and regulations in place for light–duty (cars, vans) and heavy-duty vehicles (lorries, buses), and for non-road mobile machinery.
Over the last few years, with the introduction of higher standards, the legal limit of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) has reportedly decreased by almost 70% for diesel cars.
Unfortunately, to meet these tighter restrictions, some car manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’. This can be a type of software that can allow vehicles to restrict performance and pass their emissions tests, but allow for far greater emissions levels when being used on the road. The scandals stemmed from the original VW “dieselgate” issues that came to light in 2015 that has resulted in the High Court making a finding that the technology they used is a defeat device.

Nissan and Renault vehicles are being pursued over a potential emissions scandal, and it is thought that over 1.4 million vehicles could be affected in the UK alone.
Emissions matters are very serious. If a carmaker has been found to be cheating the law, this can mean that manufacturers are allowing the release of unlawful amounts of NOx emissions into the environment. The European emissions regulations impose strict restrictions on car models as to how much pollution can be emitted in order to prevent extreme amounts of toxic gases being released into our atmosphere.
Studies show that the production of NOx can be harmful to both the environment and to the general public, and it can be responsible for tens of thousands of premature deaths each year. This is why emissions regulations are vital, especially in highly populated areas. Nissan and Renault deny that they have done anything wrong but, if they are found to have been cheating emissions testing, we will hold them to account.

AdBlue and NOx emissions go hand-hand, as some car manufacturers use AdBlue in their engines to reduce the production of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx); a toxic gas produced from diesel engines.
Many vehicle manufacturers claim that the use of AdBlue can reduce car emissions to provide for cleaner diesel vehicles, and some of those carmakers have relied on those statements when selling their models.
However, the reality may not be so green. A number of carmakers stand accused of using defeat devices in their vehicles. These can, in some cases, recognise when an emissions test is taking place, and allow for emissions-reducing technology to be engaged. Out on the road, emissions-reducing technology may not work. For some of those taking part in the emissions legal actions we are pursuing, they have reported having to top up AdBlue more often, increasing the running costs of their vehicle.

Can software updates affect vehicle performance? If so, what can you do about it, and how can we help as expert Car Emissions Lawyers?
Several car manufacturers, including VW, Mercedes and Nissan and Renault, are alleged to be involved in emissions scandals. Allegations are that engines can produce far more NOx emissions than allowed by European regulations as a result of the testing regimes being cheated.
To pass the emissions tests put in place, manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’ that can do things such as detect when the cars were being tested, which can alter whether the emissions controls are engaged or not. This can mean that, on the road, the actual emissions could be far higher.

Emissions regulations are in place worldwide to restrict the release of extreme amounts of harmful gases that could damage our planet and our health.
Such gases include Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), which is a common pollutant from diesel engines. Car manufacturers must limit the amount of NOx their vehicles emit in order to comply with European regulations that are in place to protect us.
Unfortunately, some manufacturers have used software – also known as ‘defeat devices’ – in their diesel vehicles to dupe the emissions testing system. The devices used by Volkswagen in the original “dieselgate” scandal could detect when the vehicle was being tested and restrict emissions during testing. However, in usual driving conditions, the vehicles could pollute far more.

The potential dangers of any increased Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions from Mercedes vehicles cannot be understated, which is why our compensation action for justice is important.
We will briefly outline some of the potential dangers that can be caused to human health, and why any alleged increased NOx emissions must be taken seriously.
As a specialist firm of consumer action lawyers, we are here to hold organisations to account for any wrongdoing. That is precisely what we will look to achieve if Daimler has been cheating emissions regulations.
