Volkswagen’s commitment to settlement in the U.S. continues to anger UK victims!

Right now, we’re acting for thousands of people affected by the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal here in the UK. We’re confident we will win the cases, but, at the moment, Volkswagen is trying to dispute responsibility for paying people.

Obviously this is totally unfair; especially when you look at their progress in the U.S. where settlement packages are being negotiated.

We’re working with international lawyers and keeping up with progress across the pond, and its only serving to anger the UK victims who should receive compensation as well.

German regulators approve emissions scandal fix for Volkswagen

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.

Volkswagen sales slump in Ireland in wake of Emissions Scandal

July is an important month for car sales in Ireland, as it is the time of year when consumers look to upgrade their cars. The Central Statistics Office (CSO) released figures last month that showed an annual increase of 5.5% for car sales in Ireland.

It showed the steady rise in demand from the same time in 2015 for brands such as Audi, increasing sales by 17%, and Mercedes by 36%. Land Rover also saw an increase in sales last month compared to 2015 figures.

But Volkswagen sales are dropping in the wake of one of the biggest auto industry scandals the world has ever seen.

Now, the South Korean Chief of Audi Volkswagen has been summoned over the emissions scandal by State Prosecutors.

They are doing a great deal more than our own government as we continue to fight for thousands of people affected here in the UK as part of our rapidly growing legal action.

The impact of the emission scandal in South Korea

Between 2009 and 2015 Volkswagen installed ‘defeat devices’ (software that cheated emissions testing) in their models making their cars appear better for the environment. The software allowed the cars to fool emissions testing by knowing when to switch the emissions control software on.  When the car was not being tested, the software was switched off, and the cars emitted nitrogen oxide up to 40 times more.

The Volkswagen emissions scandal has impacted a substantial amount of people across the globe. Not only that, it’s affecting businesses all around the world too.

Lower Saxony has no plans to sue Volkswagen

Lower Saxony is Volkswagen’s second largest shareholder, and reportedly has no plans to sue the German carmaker for damages following the emissions scandal. Lower Saxony has a veto power on Volkswagen’s supervisory board and has a fifth of voting rights as well.

Prime Minister Stephan Weil believes there is currently no legal basis to make a claim, so “as a result there are no plans for a lawsuit.”

This news came not long after the state of Bavaria announced they will be suing Volkswagen, making them the first regional government in the home country of Volkswagen to make a claim.

“As of August the 2nd, we have revoked the certification of 83,000 vehicles of 80 models”.

Canadian Volkswagen owners demand settlement over emission scandal

Between 2009 and 2015 Volkswagen installed software on models which allowed them to cheat pollution testing, making their cars appear more environment friendly. The software, aka as ‘defeat devices’, allowed the cars to pass emissions tests by switching on the emissions control software when under test conditions. When the car was not being tested, the software was switched off, and the cars emitted up to 40 times more nitrogen oxide.

Only certain models were fitted with the defeat device, but it is thought around 11 million cars had the device installed over the six year period.

The German car makers are offering US car owners up $10,000 each in compensation; but so far, they are yet to offer deals to any other countries.

We represent thousands of victims here in the UK as we fight for justice and compensation – and we stand by our Canadian friends who are also seeking justice as victims of the scandal.

Volkswagen working with California Air Resources Board to avoid U.S. “buy back”

Volkswagen and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are looking into testing different hardware and software that may help Volkswagen not have to buy back hundreds of thousands of diesel cars sold in the United States that were installed with defeat devices to cheat emissions testing.

CARB are working with the German car maker to see whether there are any fixes that could allow Volkswagen to fix its effected diesel engines in order to help them reduce the financial damage that the company would face. But this still may not be enough to appease disgruntled owners, or help to preserve Volkswagen’s reputation since being tarnished by the emissions scandal.

Italian Consumer Group says Volkswagen Recall Fix is “ineffective”

It’s not getting any easier for the Volkswagen Group…

We already act for thousands of UK victims of the scandal, and we already have reports from experts, and from our own clients, about the adverse affects that the recall is having, and is going to have, on vehicles.

The latest reports from Italian consumer group Altroconsumo are even more damning – their testing revealed that the fix for the Q5 actually INCREASED NOx emissions by 25%!

Is the British government protecting heavily-polluting car manufacturers?

Campaigners say that the British government is wrongfully failing to investigate pollution levels from vehicles in the aftermath of the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal.
