Back in autumn of 2015, a colossal scandal broke out that shook the motor industry to its core.
Volkswagen group and its subsidiaries were found to have been cheating car emissions testing through the use of so-called “defeat devices” – a fact of which VW are bizarrely accepting in some countries, and disputing in others. This shocking scandal has also prompted governments and authorities to initiate investigations in various countries across the world.
The impact on owners has been huge.
VW have taken contrasting approaches when it comes to compensating their victims.
In the U.S., there has been a settlement of $15 billion approved by U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in recent weeks. Yet, here in Europe, and in the rest of the world, VW continue to refuse to enter in to settlement negotiations.
German regulators have reportedly approved a fix for 1.2L Volkswagen Group models affected by the emissions scandal – dubbed “dieselgate” in the media.
The fix has been approved for some five million vehicles affected, which accounts for almost half of those affected across the globe, and includes models like the SEAT Ibiza and the Volkswagen Polo.
The fix may be approved, but the question as to how the fix is going to affect vehicles moving forward remains the important one.

You may be aware that Volkswagen have seemingly changed their position a few times in terms of whether they will offer compensation for victims of the emission defeat device scandal (aka “Dieselgate”).
They have suggested that they will pay victims in the USA yet they have decided to take a very different stance here in the UK by denying liability for claims and saying they will not be paying any compensation to victims; despite the fact they have admitted what’s happened!
In light of their denial of liability, will VW customers get compensation?
We’re acting for thousands of people affected by the Volkswagen emissions cheat device scandal, and we’re receiving copies of the latest letter sent to those affected with an update on the progress of the recall.
Although our action is running separately to the recall, as we’re going for compensation for those who have been affected by the emissions scandal, we’re of course keeping a very close eye on how the recall is going.
The latest update and statements from Volkswagen UK are in…
As we’re helping thousands of people, our Car Emissions Lawyers have gained a valuable insight in to how the victims of the Volkswagen Group scandal feel about the news that they have been affected. Over the last few days many of the victims have now received a notification letter from their manufacturer to confirm they are affected.
Our clients have been telling us how they feel – and the general consensus is similar throughout.
Our Car Emissions Lawyers are helping thousands of victims of the Volkswagen Group scandal claim the compensation they deserve. Here is how things are from a legal standpoint at the moment:
Car giant Volkswagen, who have been installing defeat devices in millions of cars worldwide, have now confirmed that the recalls in the UK will start in January 2016.
Around 1.2 million cars in the UK alone are fitted with the devices that can detect when the car is undergoing testing and switch on the engines emissions controls only during test conditions. Outside of test conditions the cars are emitting around 40 times more pollutants.
We have been inundated with concerned victims who have joined our group action – here’s the latest from our Car Emissions Team.
