An EPA investigation found that VW Clean Diesel vehicles contain software that turns off emissions controls when vehicles are driven normally. When the EPA demanded an explanation, Volkswagen admitted to evading clean air laws.

Which VW and Audi diesel models are affected?

Volkswagen and Audi must now initiate a recall to fix the emissions systems in eight diesel vehicle models:

  • VW Jetta (2009-2015)
  • VW Jetta Sportwagen (2009-2014)
  • VW Beetle (2012-2015)
  • VW Beetle Convertible (2012-2015)
  • Audi A3 (2010-2015)
  • VW Golf (2010-2015)
  • VW Golf Sportwagen (2015)
  • VW Passat (2012-2015)

VW Facing Criminal Investigation for Cheating Emissions Tests

Already facing up to $18 billion in fines from the EPA, Volkswagen is now the subject of a U.S. Department of Justice criminal investigation. Volkswagen’s CEO, Martin Winterkorn, resigned less than one week after the EPA announced VW’s Clean Air Act violations. It has yet to be determined if company executives will be prosecuted over their involvement in the scandal.

Volkswagen TDI Owners Were Deceived

Volkswagen and Audi cars with the four-cylinder CleanDiesel TDI engine were more expensive than equivalent models with gasoline engines. Many buyers purchased the vehicles because they believed they were getting vehicles with better gas mileage, lower emissions, and higher resale values. Unfortunately, owners didn’t get what they paid for.

Worse yet, VW’s proposed emissions system fix—a software upgrade—may reduce vehicle performance, a factor that could damage resale values of recalled vehicles.

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
