Vauxhall Diesel Emissions

Your Lawyers – The Car Emissions Lawyers – represent thousands of claimants engaged in the numerous emissions litigations and scandals in the UK, with millions of vehicles recalled to date.

If you own or lease, or used to own or lease, a Vauxhall vehicle first registered between 2009 and 2020 then you could be entitled to join the Vauxhall Emission Compensation Action on a No Win, No Fee basis.

The Vauxhall emissions scandal is just one in a long line of alleged emissions issues and scandals to have hit the industry since the original “Dieselgate” scandal first came to light in 2015. The parent company for Vauxhall Motors is Stellantis, with Vauxhall vehicles identical to its sister company Opel, and a number of Stellantis brands have been indicated in emissions issues. So far, as other carmakers have done, allegations of wrongdoing are being firmly denied, but we will investigate any emissions issues thoroughly ourselves.

About The Vauxhall Emissions Scandal And Recalls

It is understood that potentially over a million Vauxhall vehicles in the UK could be caught up in a Vauxhall emissions scandal. The allegations against the carmaker are that they may have used software or technology in their vehicles that could allow them to pass emissions tests but pollute far more dangerous NOx in usual driving conditions.

Allegations remain firmly denied, which has been the case with carmakers across the board that are caught up in emissions issues.

NOx is dangerous to human health and it is dangerous for the environment. This is why we have lifesaving regulations that are designed to reduce the impact of harmful pollutants and protect our planet. If these regulations are breached, legal action must follow.

The Vauxhall cases follow the original Volkswagen “Dieselgate” emissions scandal that first emerged in 2015, where the vehicle manufacturer was found to have installed defeat device technology in its vehicles. Carmakers continue to deny allegations of wrongdoing that have been made against them, despite the numerous court findings and compensation pay-outs that have taken place to date against some of them.

In 2016, regulators investigating carmakers who may have been cheating emissions regulations reported a number of concerns. As well as looking into illegal software that could amount to a defeat device, they have also been looking into “thermal windows” and whether they have been abused or not. Some carmakers may allegedly be abusing thermal windows, where emissions management systems can scale down to protect vehicle engines, to circumvent emissions regulations.

The line between cheating and engine protection is the issue here. We know that carmakers are defending allegations against them on the basis that they say that they have used thermal windows to protect vehicle engines, but the abuse of a thermal window could still amount to an unlawful defeat device. This in itself may justify the need for a Vauxhall emissions recall here in the UK if this has taken place.

The UK’s Department for Transport (DFT) has been testing diesel vehicles ever since the cheating allegations against VW emerged. Their findings indicated that the Vauxhall Insignia was one of the worst performers, according to ITV News.

Any Vauxhall emissions recall in the UK that you are affected by could mean that you are eligible to launch a claim with our expert team. Your vehicle may need to undergo changes that could affect its performance, cost-effectiveness and its resale value.

Claim In The Vauxhall Emissions Compensation Action

You could be eligible to claim in our Emissions Compensation Action if you own or lease, or used to own or lease, an affected vehicle that was first registered between 2009 and 2020 in England and Wales.

Models Affected

Any diesel Vauxhall model can be eligible to join the claim.
