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.

Porsche limiting European sales speaks volumes

Porsche limiting European sales speaks volumes in terms of the inability of VW Group brands to keep their diesel engines legal.

At the time of the announcement, Porsche said that the number of models sold in Europe would be limited as a result of the changes to emissions testing; changes that likely stemmed from the Volkswagen emissions scandal in the first place.

Although they’re not the only carmaker to have halted or limited sales as a result of the changes, the Porsche recalls and the “Dieselgate” scandal itself say a lot in terms of the legality of these engines in my view.

The latest string of arrests, raids and recalls has taken the shine off luxury Volkswagen-owned Porsche. In the last few weeks, an EU-wide recall has been triggered for some 60,000 Porsche Cayenne and Porsche Macan models that are suspected of containing emissions cheating software.

This news came just weeks after Porsche had also been accused of cheating emissions testing by starting vehicles in second gear to lower tax bands for owners.

But this isn’t the only recent headache the VW-owned luxury brand has had to face: arrests and raids have been rife as prosecutors in more than one territory intend to get to the bottom of their involvement in emissions cheating behaviour.

Porsche have come under fire in a huge emissions probe that has triggered an EU-wide recall of some 60,000 Porsche Cayenne and Porsche Macan models.

The news comes shortly after Porsche were also accused of fiddling emission tests to save drivers of the Boxster S, Spyder, Cayman R and Cayman S an estimated £225 per year; costing the Treasury an estimated £3m

Porsche were recently raided by German authorities who are keen to clamp down on any kind of emissions cheating which is somewhat synonymous of the Volkswagen Group – of which Porsche is a part of – as they remain embroiled in their monumental “Dieselgate” scandal.

The German Bundesanstalt fur Finanzdienstleistungaufsicht (BaFin) have announced they will begin investigations into Volkswagen and Daimler after allegations of price collusion and other cartel activities.

The colossal carmakers admitted to cartel authorities that secret meetings and discussions had taken place and that they reportedly did not notify investors of their activity.

Although this is not directly related to the emission scandal, it’s yet another headache for the German car giant to deal with off the back of alleged unfair practices.

Some two years on since VW’s use of the so-called “defeat devices” hit the news, several other automakers have been accused of doing the same thing.

Authorities worldwide have been investigating automakers since the breaking of the scandal. Germany has called for Porsche vehicles – who are a part of the VW Group – to be recalled over concerns they are also fitted with suspicious software.

Once again, we ask the burning question: when will this ever end?

Are Porsche cheating emissions too?

How long is a piece of string? – This is probably the best response to a question like “when will VW see an end to repercussions arising from the VW scandal?”

In the latest development in the ongoing and ever-growing emissions scandal, the German government will test Porsche (VW subsidiary company) vehicles following reports that Porches are exceeding emissions limits as well.

Déjà vu? Are there defeat devices in Porsche models too? Time will tell…

But we wouldn’t be surprised if there are…

Are Porsche vehicles “cheating” emissions testing too?

First published by Admin on December 22, 2016 in the following categories: Emissions News and tagged with

Will there ever be an end to the new developments in the worldwide Volkswagen Emissions Scandal – dubbed “dieselgate” – that continues to plague the German automotive giants?

With new developments appearing on an almost daily basis, we’re wondering if there ever will be!

New reports allege that Porsche – who are owned by VW – may also have equipped some of its gas models with an alleged “defeat device” which is not something that is particularly new to us anyway. If it’s found to be true though, the problems for VW are only going to get worse…
