Volkswagen Automobile Recall

European automaker Volkswagen has allegedly run afoul of United States emissions laws and is now facing the consequences.  Volkswagen is a popular brand in the US, especially since the premier of their “clean diesel” technology. Clean diesel vehicles have been promoted as an alternative to hybrid and fully electric cars.   However, it has recently been discovered that many of these vehicles are not as environmentally friendly as they were once thought to be and a nationwide recall has begun.

Volkswagen Models Recalled

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ordered that Volkswagen recall a number of their diesel vehicles.  The agency found the vehicles’ computers were programmed to know when emissions tests were being run and that the cars were programmed to operate in two modes depending upon whether tests were being performed or not.  In test mode, the vehicles conformed to all United States emissions standards.  In the other mode, the vehicles released high levels of Nitrogen Oxide emissions (as much as forty times the legal limit) in clear violation of clean air laws. 

The vehicles being recalled are as follows:

  • 2012 - 2015 Volkswagen Beetle
  • 2012 – 2015 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
  • 2010 – 2015 Volkswagen Golf
  • 2009 – 2015 Volkswagen Jetta
  • 2009 – 2014 Volkswagen Sport Wagen
  • 2012 – 2015 Volkswagen Passat

You can also go to the Volkswagen website and enter your VIN to determine whether your vehicle has been effected by the recall.

Audi Diesel Automobile Recall

Audi, a subsidiary of Volkswagen, is also under scrutiny for having violated emissions regulations in the United States.  As the vehicles use the same clean diesel technology as Volkswagen, the same emissions related problems have been discovered.

The vehicles being recalled are as follows:

  • 2010-2015 Audi A3

Lemon Law and Fraud Lawsuits

If your vehicle has been recalled, you may be entitled to repair, reimbursement or replacement under the lemon law of your state.  Also, if you have purchased or leased a diesel Volkswagen or Audi vehicle that is now subject to a recall, you were a victim of fraud and may be entitled to compensation.
