The Hits Keep Coming for Volkswagen

The hits keep coming for Volkswagen.  On Monday November 2nd, the Environmental Protection Agency issued yet another notice of violation to VW, this time covering the company’s high-end sport utility vehicles, including the diesel versions of: the 2014 VW Touareg, the 2015 Porsche Cayenne, and the 2016 Audi A6 Quattro, A7 Quattro, A8, A8L, and Q5.  According to the EPA, the automaker installed its “defeat device” on 10,000 such vehicles, permitting it to defeat emission testing despite nitrogen oxide emissions up to nine times in excess of the EPA’s standards.

As we’ve written before, this recent announcement comes on the heels of a September 18 notice of violation by the EPA, which covered Volkswagen’s 2.0L engine vehicles – about 500,000 of which are in the United States.
Volkswagen estimates that it will take at least a year or two to fix the vehicles once the EPA approves its remediation plan.  While the company has announced that it has set aside $7.3 billion to fix affected cars, that may not cover the diminution in value and associated damages suffered by these vehicles.
At Tittle & Perlmuter, we are investigating and pursuing claims on behalf of both vehicle owners and dealers.  Call us today to speak with a Volkswagen emissions lawyer for a free consultation.  We are here to make sure that your rights are protected during this massive consumer rights scandal.
