AdBlue and NOx emissions go hand-hand, as some car manufacturers use AdBlue in their engines to reduce the production of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx); a toxic gas produced from diesel engines.
Many vehicle manufacturers claim that the use of AdBlue can reduce car emissions to provide for cleaner diesel vehicles, and some of those carmakers have relied on those statements when selling their models.
However, the reality may not be so green. A number of carmakers stand accused of using defeat devices in their vehicles. These can, in some cases, recognise when an emissions test is taking place, and allow for emissions-reducing technology to be engaged. Out on the road, emissions-reducing technology may not work. For some of those taking part in the emissions legal actions we are pursuing, they have reported having to top up AdBlue more often, increasing the running costs of their vehicle.

Can software updates affect vehicle performance? If so, what can you do about it, and how can we help as expert Car Emissions Lawyers?
Several car manufacturers, including VW, Mercedes and Nissan and Renault, are alleged to be involved in emissions scandals. Allegations are that engines can produce far more NOx emissions than allowed by European regulations as a result of the testing regimes being cheated.
To pass the emissions tests put in place, manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’ that can do things such as detect when the cars were being tested, which can alter whether the emissions controls are engaged or not. This can mean that, on the road, the actual emissions could be far higher.

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.

The potential dangers of any increased Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions from Mercedes vehicles cannot be understated, which is why our compensation action for justice is important.
We will briefly outline some of the potential dangers that can be caused to human health, and why any alleged increased NOx emissions must be taken seriously.
As a specialist firm of consumer action lawyers, we are here to hold organisations to account for any wrongdoing. That is precisely what we will look to achieve if Daimler has been cheating emissions regulations.

The Your Lawyers Mercedes emissions action has been launched for owners whose vehicles may be emitting far more dangerous NOx than they should be doing.
When news of the VW scandal broke in 2015 and we took thousands of cases forward, we suspected that they may not be the only ones who needed to be investigated. Around the world, several other carmakers have faced fines, penalties, criminal cases, and consumer legal actions. Now, Mercedes (Daimler) also stands accused of using technology that may affect vehicle NOx emissions.
We are investigating the issues and we are taking claims forward for owners now on a No Win, No Fee basis.
We have been accepting Mercedes emissions compensation claims for some time now, but if you’ve yet to start a case, here’s how we can help you.
When the Volkswagen emissions scandal broke in 2015, we felt there would be other manufacturers that would also need investigating. Since then, several carmakers have been involved in legal actions and have faced criminal investigations around the world. Whilst many continue to defend themselves and state that they have done nothing wrong, we believe that there’s justification for further action.
In 2015, the Car Emissions Lawyers (that’s us) were one of the first – if not the first – to formally accept VW cases on No Win, No Fee agreements. We were also the first to pioneer High Court action in January 2016, and we were appointed to the Steering Committee for the VW action in 2018. In 2020, we’re taking new cases forward as part of the Mercedes emissions compensation action.
