In 2015, Volkswagen hit the headlines in the infamous “dieselgate” scandal, in which the carmaker was accused of using illegal defeat device technology as a means of cheating emissions tests. But Volkswagen has since become just one among many car manufacturers to be subjected to such allegations, causing the scandal to soon become practically industry-wide. We are already taking on claims as part of our Vauxhall emissions compensation action, as we believe there is enough evidence to suggest that Vauxhall may similarly have breached emissions regulations.
If the allegations against Vauxhall are proven, and they remain denied at present, the company may have breached consumer law. If this is the case, the affected vehicle owners could be entitled to recover thousands of pounds in compensation. Anyone who thinks that their diesel car may have been affected by the emissions scandals can check their eligibility via our online form today.
Soon after the news of the “dieselgate” scandal broke, Your Lawyers – The Car Emissions Lawyers – were taking on claims for those affected. We anticipated that the case against Volkswagen could constitute one of the biggest consumer group actions ever seen in the UK, and we were later appointed to a key role in the Group Litigation Order (GLO), sitting on the Steering Committee. We also envisaged that other carmakers would need to be investigated, and emissions claimants can trust in our experience and expertise in this niche area of law.
Vauxhall has aroused suspicion after regulators reportedly found evidence of emissions irregularities in certain diesel models manufactured by the company.
Alongside its sister company Opel, Vauxhall has been accused of using defeat devices, which in some cases are said to be able to detect when vehicles are undergoing emissions testing, enabling them to manipulate nitrous oxide (NOx) production. However, when on the road, these vehicles are said to be producing far more NOx than is permitted by emissions regulations.
Although it is not yet known what – if any – behaviour Vauxhall could be guilty of, it has been suggested that they may be allegedly abusing so-called “thermal windows”, where emissions controls can be restricted for engine protection. If this is abused, this can constitute a form of defeat device in some cases. Vauxhall denies that it has done anything wrong at all.
If the allegations against Vauxhall prove to be true, any non-compliance with emissions standards could constitute a significant breach of consumer rights. As a Vauxhall customer, you will likely have been led to believe that your diesel vehicle produced emissions within legal restrictions. As such, if this is not the case, any deceit that Vauxhall may be guilty of could mean that they are subsequently liable to issue huge compensation pay-outs to those affected.
In some cases, there could be additional bases for Vauxhall emissions compensation claims, such as the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations (CPUT). This is a piece of legislation that could entitle claimants to receive between 25-100% of the purchase price of their vehicles in compensation.
