We said that more and more would come out of the woodwork as time goes by, but this latest development in the Volkswagen emissions scandal has left our legal team and commenting clients in shock.
Questioning of bosses in the US has revealed that chiefs are blaming a small number of software engineers who are responsible for the defeat devices, with motives that remain unknown. They admit it’s hard to believe, and we agree – it’s very hard to believe indeed!
So the latest is that a small number of ‘rogue engineers’ have decided to do this off their own backs, without the knowledge of bosses. How on earth can we be expected to believe such things?
There is growing speculation that the Volkswagen Group – which includes Audi, SEAT, and Skoda – is not the only car manufacturing giant hiding a secret. Since the breaking of the news that Volkswagen have been fitting defeat devices in to vehicles to cheat emissions testing, many car owners are concerned that their own brand may also be hiding something.
So which car maker is next? Some have already spoken out and stated they do not use ‘defeat devices’ but given the scale of this scandal, how can we be convinced?
The Volkswagen HQ in Germany has been raided by prosecutors as part of the criminal investigations following the revelations that the Volkswagen Group have been fitting ‘defeat devices’ in to diesel engines to cheat fuel emission testing.
These sophisticated devices are coded to know when the vehicle is undergoing testing to only switch on emissions controls during any perceived test period. With around 11 million vehicles worldwide affected, the scandal is widening, and more is emerging about just how far back the bosses at VW have known.
You’ve bought what you were told was a high performance and efficient vehicle, which you’ve probably paid more for with the promise that it will be better for the environment and better for you in terms of fuel economy. And then the Volkswagen scandal broke; and like millions worldwide, you are being told that your vehicle has been fitted with sophisticated technology that is designed to cheat emissions testing.
If you’re angry, we don’t blame you. In fact most of our clients who have joined our huge group action have said how angry and how betrayed they feel. So what can you do about it?
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.
