Tag: buyback scheme
The recent court ruling that can allow German towns and cities to ban diesel vehicles was another example that attitudes are shifting as people are more aware of what automakers like Volkswagen are responsible for.
VW used cheat devices in around 11 million of their vehicles worldwide, and they did it (we assume) to allow their vehicles to pass emissions testing yet pollute more lethal NOx.
In our view, they put profits before people and they deserve to be punished. This latest buyback scheme in Germany, although limited, is one way they can help consumers affected by German law changes, and they should apply it universally for all consumers affected by the Emissions Scandal!
