Honda emissions compensation

Honda is one of the many car manufacturers that we are investigating over allegations that its diesel vehicles may have allegedly breached emissions regulations. In 2015, the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal became the trigger for revelations about potential widespread emissions problems across a large number of major carmakers. Those who own or have previously owned Honda diesel vehicles could be eligible to claim Honda emissions compensation if allegations are proven to be true.

The majority of carmakers implicated in emissions scandals are suspected of implementing some form of illegal defeat device technology in their vehicles as a means of cheating emissions tests. Where this is the case, carmakers will not only have broken emissions regulations, they may also have breached consumer rights law. Of course, carmakers strongly deny that they have done anything wrong, which is why we are carefully investigating the matters.

When we began taking on VW emissions claims in 2015 and initiated High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in 2016, we knew that the Volkswagen allegations were only the tip of the iceberg. We now want to use our experience in emissions litigation to hold any and all deceitful car manufacturers to account. If you claim compensation in one of our group actions, you will be doing your bit to see that justice is done if cheating has taken place.

Citroen emissions compensation claims

We are taking on Citroen emissions compensation cases for claimants, as current allegations suggest that the manufacturer may potentially be involved in the use of illegal defeat device technology. The PSA group, which owns the Citroen brand, became the subject of suspicion as early as 2016, when it was revealed that French prosecutors had reportedly begun investigating the company regarding potential emissions issues.

Citroen is one of many car manufacturers to have become the subject of emissions allegations since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal shook the industry in 2015. We were quick to respond by taking on claimants and initiating High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in early 2016, and we have been pursuing a number of different investigations into other manufacturers ever since.

If it emerges that certain Citroen vehicles are fitted with software that allows them to cheat emissions tests, the affected owners could be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation. You can find out if you could be eligible to claim by contacting our specialist team today.

Ford emissions compensation action

As one of latest car manufacturers to become embroiled in the car emissions scandals of recent years, Ford has come under suspicion following allegations that it may have used illegal defeat device technology. As we continue to investigate the allegations, those who own affected vehicles may be able to claim Ford emissions compensation. The carmaker, like others, denies any wrongdoing at all.

After Volkswagen was implicated in the dieselgate scandal in 2015, a number of other manufacturers were similarly accused of manipulating their cars to pass emissions tests in some way. The majority of carmakers have been associated with excessive nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions allegations, and the accusations against Ford have also linked it to allegations of the overproduction of carbon emissions.

If it does emerge that customers have been deceived regarding the emissions output of their vehicles, there may be a case for a Ford emissions group action, in which claimants could recover thousands of pounds. We have been invested in the fight against carmakers over such allegations from the beginning, having initiated High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in early 2016. Now, we are determined to ensure that all those affected by car emissions scandals can access the justice they deserve where allegations are found to be true.

Latest update in the Renault diesel emissions investigations

Having been subjected to investigations several years ago, it has now been confirmed that French carmaker Renault has been charged by a court. Launched in 2017, the Renault diesel emissions investigations are among many probes into alleged emissions fraud that have been aimed at a number of accused carmakers.

Since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal that broke in the media in 2015, in which the company was accused of fitting illegal defeat devices to its diesel vehicles, a number of the world’s most well-known car brands have also been met with accusations that they manipulated emissions control software in their diesel cars. Volkswagen has already been levelled with billions of pounds in fines, and the latest decision in the Renault case indicates that it may be heading towards higher financial penalties also.

As the first firm to initiate High Court proceedings in England and Wales against Volkswagen soon after the scandal broke, we have been representing claimants affected by alleged emissions cheating for over 5 years. We are determined to see that all suspected carmakers are held to account where allegations are proven. We can take on claims for any car owners who are found to have been affected by Renault’s alleged emissions cheating.

BMW emissions compensation

Ever since the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal first emerged in 2015, we have been investigating allegations of emissions cheating made against a number of car manufacturers. BMW is one of the latest names to be added to our list, and is believed to be associated with the Volkswagen emissions scandal, as BMW is alleged to have colluded with Daimler and Volkswagen in order to restrict the emission controls in their diesel vehicles. Following fines and recalls in Germany, we believe that the allegations have enough weight for us to take on BMW emissions compensation claims.

Like other carmakers, BMW denies that they have done anything wrong and, at this stage, we are investigating allegations.

With our unique experience in emissions litigation, we are expanding claims to include a number of other manufacturers, including Ford, Vauxhall and Mitsubishi. We are determined to make sure that as many affected owners can access the compensation they might be entitled to, so you can register your details today to find out whether your vehicle may have been affected.

Diesel emissions claims – our investigations into carmakers

As one of the first firms to take on Volkswagen diesel emissions claims, we have been investigating diesel emissions claims ever since 2015.

The dieselgate scandal was born when Volkswagen was accused of using illegal defeat devices to cheat emissions tests and, soon after, a number of other carmakers came under suspicion regarding their alleged breach of regulatory limits on emissions outputs also. As the allegations begin to extend wider across the car manufacturing industry, we have recently begun even more emissions investigations into several other carmakers.

Beyond the potential environmental and health implications, this is also a severe consumer issue as there may have been many breaches of consumer law on an unprecedented industry scale. If it is found that you were deceived when it comes to the emissions output of your vehicle, you may be able to recover thousands of pounds in compensation by making an emissions claim.

What is a GLO?

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.

Fiat Chrysler emissions claims

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 emissions compensation claims

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.

What is a defeat device?

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.

Illegal road pollution – the fight for justice

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.
