If the allegations that have been made against Nissan are found to be true, you could be eligible to receive thousands or even tens of thousands of pounds in compensation. Although the dozens of carmakers that we are pursuing for the thousands of clients that we represent strongly deny that they have done anything wrong, we are determined to get to the bottom of the wider “dieselgate” scandals. If cheating has taken place, we can hold carmakers to account.
The Car Emissions Lawyers are true pioneers of emissions action here in England and Wales. As one of the first firms to formally accept clients on a No Win, No Fee basis for the original 2015 “dieselgate” scandal, we have been fighting for justice since the very beginning. And, as the first law firm in England and Wales to initiate High Court proceedings in January 2016 against VW, we have been pioneering legal action that has since widened to cover dozens of carmakers.
Media outlets have reported that Nissan and Porsche have been facing allegations over allegedly providing false emissions information in South Korea.
As leading pioneers of justice for emissions scandals here in the UK, this seems to be yet another story where the governments and regulators are looking into emissions problems over diesel vehicles. Whilst carmakers continue to strongly deny that they have done anything wrong, more and more evidence keeps mounting up, and more and more legal actions are being initiated.
This latest action in South Korea is not the first, and will probably not be the last.
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.
A member of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, Mitsubishi has become implicated in the emissions scandals following long-held suspicions and recent investigations by German prosecutors. Like a number of other major car manufacturers, Mitsubishi is suspected of allegedly using a form of defeat device in its diesel vehicles as a means of cheating emissions tests. We have launched a Mitsubishi emissions compensation action to further pursue the allegations and take on claims for the potentially affected owners. We represent owners pursuing legal cases with us on a No Win, No Fee basis.
In 2015, the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines, with allegations that the manufacturer was guilty of emissions fraud. This subsequently gave way to a series of similar accusations against other reputed carmakers. Now, many manufacturers have been claiming that they were working towards a more eco-friendly future of vehicle production, when in fact they may have allegedly been in breach of emissions standards.
Any car manufacturers who have breached emissions regulations may have consequently broken consumer law. If it is found that Mitsubishi owners were deceived regarding the emissions output of their vehicles, they may be able to recover thousands of pounds in compensation. As things stand, they deny that they have committed any wrongdoing at all.
Following a monumental four-year legal battle, the UK Supreme Court has ruled in favour of Your Lawyers after a lengthy appeal case against Harcus Sinclair was concluded. The case initially arose from an agreement signed by the two firms in relation to the Volkswagen emissions litigation.
Unfortunately, Harcus Sinclair subsequently failed to honour the agreement made with Your Lawyers. Your Lawyers has been trading as The Car Emissions Lawyers since 2015 when news of the first “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines, representing thousands of owners claiming against a range of carmakers in England and Wales.
Aman Johal, lawyer and director of Your Lawyers (The Car Emissions Lawyers), expressed his relief at the ruling: “This is such an important victory for Your Lawyers but also for the dignity and sanctity of the legal profession. We have lived and breathed this case for four long years and were forced to take the matter all the way to the UK Supreme Court simply to oblige a law firm to honour an agreement that they freely entered into.”
Nissan, alongside associated brand Renault, is currently the subject of investigations into the alleged use of defeat devices in its vehicles. The allegations, born in the wake of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal, concern the debate over whether or not Nissan has used illegal defeat device technology to disguise its vehicles’ non-compliance with emissions regulations. If it is confirmed that customers were deceived regarding the emissions output of their vehicles, they may be able to make Nissan emissions compensation claims.
After a court case in which we played a key role in, Volkswagen was found to have been using illegal defeat devices to cheat emissions tests. The allegations of deceitful emissions practices now spread widely across the car manufacturing industry, and while they have yet to all be proven, we are determined to ensure that all suspected manufacturers are thoroughly scrutinised in order to root out any wrongdoing.
Nissan, as other carmakers are doing, strongly deny that they have done anything wrong. Our investigations will determine if this is the case or not.
As specialists in group actions, we often represent tens, hundreds, or thousands of claimants in the same lawsuit. We can bring group actions when multiple claimants are affected by the same breach of their rights, such as when they owned a car affected by emissions irregularities. When we believe that a group action is large and strong enough to be better managed and formally recognised with the court, we can apply for a GLO, as was done in the case of our Volkswagen emissions group action.
But what is a GLO? In short, GLO stands for Group Litigation Order, and is the term often used for formally recognised group actions here in England and Wales. As a claimant, you don’t need to know all the ins and outs of the legal terminology, but it is important to know how you can register for a GLO and what this means for your claim.
We make it as easy as possible for our clients to register their claims – you can use our online form today to check your eligibility for a car emissions claim quickly now.
Ever since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal broke in 2015, The Car Emissions Lawyers have been instrumental in the fight to hold car manufacturers to account for any unethical practices of installing ‘defeat devices’ in cars in order to cheat emissions tests. One of our most recent lawsuits is the Nissan and Renault emissions action, launched over similar allegations that the manufacturer’s vehicles may have been producing excessive emissions for sinister reasons.
The carmaker strongly denies that they have done anything wrong, and we are in the process of investigating the allegations accordingly.
If you owned or leased a potentially affected vehicle, you may be eligible to claim in our group action. Excessive vehicle pollution has been proven to contribute toward environmental damage and harm respiratory health, so it is unacceptable if car manufacturers have been engaging in fraudulent practices behind closed doors just so they don’t have to compromise on things like engine performance.
If you have been affected by any of the recent car emissions scandals, it is important you do not miss the deadline to claim.
Car emissions scandals can be extremely damaging to the general population and the environment, particularly in built-up areas such as cities. Holding car manufacturers accountable for any unlawful level of toxic emissions is vital, and exactly what we are here for.
Whilst carmakers continue to deny liability for the emissions claims, we continue to push hard to hold them to account where we believe that there has been a breach of the law.

We are an experienced law firm that is passionate about the impact of emissions scandals on our health and the environment, and we make it our mission to champion consumer rights. With the emissions scandals, it is down to allegations that some manufacturers could be using a form of ‘defeat device’ software to cheat emissions tests and pass EU emissions restrictions. By cheating the tests, cars could then produce illegal amounts of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) during normal use which can be extremely harmful to both the human population and to the environment.
If your vehicle has been subject to a software update in relation to engine management, systems, or emissions, you could be eligible to make an emissions claim with us now.
If you have yet to do so, we always advise that starting an emissions claim as soon as possible is the best way to go, and we are here to help you now.
It is important to understand that every single case will be subject to legal time limits to claim. There are time limits as set out in the Limitations Act, and there are also court deadlines to make sure you do not miss in most cases like this as well.
Once these time limits have expired, it may be the case that you can no longer go ahead with the case without special permission from the court. This is not something that is commonly granted, so you must make sure that you do not miss out on the chance to claim.
