Among several other car manufacturers, the Car Emissions Lawyers is investigating allegations that put the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group in the line of fire over the suspected use of defeat device technology. Defeat devices are so named for their purpose of overcoming and cheating emissions tests, potentially allowing vehicles to break EU emissions regulations unnoticed. Any car owners affected by emissions irregularities could be eligible to make Fiat Chrysler emissions claims.
With accusations circulating on an international level, we saw fit to launch a group action against Fiat Chrysler on the basis that they may have deceived owners upon the purchase of their vehicle. If you are an affected owner, you could be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation, and you can use our online form to confirm your eligibility.
As it stands, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) refute that they have done anything wrong, and we continue to investigate the allegations that they face.

Porsche is one of several car manufacturers that is suspected of manipulating vehicles in order to cheat emissions testing. While Volkswagen is the only carmaker to have been proven to have used defeat devices in the courts in England and Wales, we are also taking on Porsche emissions compensation claims for any car owners that may have been affected by similar issues.
The fact that Volkswagen is the parent company of Porsche has undoubtedly contributed to the accusations levelled at Porsche. Even while we await a court ruling on the matter, we believe that the allegations have enough weight for us to take on Porsche claimants, and we have been doing so for a number of years.
If you are concerned that your vehicle may have been affected by emissions issues, you can use one of our online forms to find out if you might have a claim to make.

In recent years, a series of car emissions scandals have come under public scrutiny, with several car manufacturers being accused of installing so-called ‘defeat devices’ in their vehicles in order to cheat emissions tests. Understandably, those who are not as familiar with the dieselgate scandals may be asking the question: what is a defeat device, and how does it work?
Since the first issues about Volkswagen were revealed, we have initiated legal actions against several manufacturers for allegations involving dozens of car models. We have constantly kept our finger on the pulse for any further evidence or allegations regarding the use of defeat devices. We hope to dispel any confusion surrounding the allegations against car manufacturers and, more importantly, to make any affected owners aware that they may be eligible to claim compensation.

It has recently come to light that tens of thousands of people are being exposed to traffic pollution exceeding the legal limits in England. A recent report from The Times has reported on illegal road pollution, which is said to affect areas next to 101 A-roads and motorways.
Potential breaches of emissions caps are said to be occurring on the busiest roads of England’s major cities, including Derby, Nottingham, Leeds, and London, to name but a few. In particular, one gas that is a cause for concern is nitrogen dioxide. NOx has become infamous due to the dieselgate car emissions scandals of recent years, and we are representing claimants pursuing cases against a number of carmakers.
We began taking car emissions cases on as soon as the news of the Volkswagen scandal broke back in 2015, and we are now representing clients in actions against several car manufacturers. The news of alarmingly high road pollution demonstrates that these actions remain vital for the health of our population and our environment.

Your Lawyers (T/a The Car Emissions Lawyers) are pioneers in vehicle emissions action. We were one of the first to take action for the Volkswagen ‘Dieselgate’ emissions scandal and have been taking action ever since. Read on to find out more about the Car Emissions Lawyers below.
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.

Emissions regulations are in place worldwide to restrict the release of extreme amounts of harmful gases that could damage our planet and our health.
Such gases include Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), which is a common pollutant from diesel engines. Car manufacturers must limit the amount of NOx their vehicles emit in order to comply with European regulations that are in place to protect us.
Unfortunately, some manufacturers have used software – also known as ‘defeat devices’ – in their diesel vehicles to dupe the emissions testing system. The devices used by Volkswagen in the original “dieselgate” scandal could detect when the vehicle was being tested and restrict emissions during testing. However, in usual driving conditions, the vehicles could pollute far more.

Why should you be concerned about Mercedes NOx emissions? Why is our compensation action so important? What are the risks and dangers for people?
These are some of the questions that people ask when they consider joining the Mercedes Emissions Compensation Action here in the UK. As a leading firm of consumer action lawyers that pioneered the first High Court action against VW in England and Wales in January 2016, we are well placed to tell you why claiming is important.
NOx is dangerous to human health and to the environment. Any carmaker that is found to have cheated the rules should be held to account, and owners should be compensated.
Will the new so-called “impossible-to-cheat” emissions tests work? Or, will automotive manufactures find a way to cheat the new tests (again)?
The Volkswagen Emissions Scandal brought to light the stark realisation that car manufactures are capable of – and happy to – cheat. There was nothing accidental about the “dieselgate” scandal, which was an intentionally-conceived mission to ensure VW Group vehicles passed emissions testing by cheating.
Many are understandably wondering whether the new so-called “impossible-to-cheat” emissions tests will really work.
