RIGGED EMISSIONS TESTS ON VOLKSWAGEN AND AUDI DIESEL ENGINES OUTRAGE CONSUMERS
Following news that the German automaker had rigged U.S. emissions tests for about 500,000 diesel cars, the attorneys at Justice Law have received countless calls from outraged consumers across the state of Florida and around the country asking what can be done.
PROTECTING VW OWNERS’ RIGHTS
The fact remains, these vehicles were called “clean diesels” and were marketed as fun-to-drive alternatives to hybrids offering more power, better fuel efficiency and clean emissions. However, as the story developed, it turns out the increasingly eco-conscious buyers of these vehicles who were duped into paying thousands of dollars more for diesel vehicles have been unknowingly pumping smog into the air because of software Volkswagen installed to cheat on U.S. emissions tests.
Proposed fix may affect economy and performance
While Volkswagen has said that it is currently committed to fixing the problems as soon as possible, the fix may very well include re-programming the onboard computer which will not only reduce emissions but will affect performance and fuel efficiency, two of the most attractive features of diesels.
