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.

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.
