Volkswagen’s Deception
Denver Volkswagen Recall Attorneys

ZABLJAK, MONTE NEGRO - AUGUST 18: VW Beetle car on August 18, 20Volkswagen is a leader in manufacturing diesel cars across the globe. When the United States first introduced stricter emissions standards in 2009, Volkswagen was one of the first manufacturers to come forward with a diesel vehicle that met the new standards. In fact, Volkswagen & Audi diesel cars still maintained exceptional fuel economy, engine power, and precision handling – despite the stricter emissions standards.

Now, it seems that Volkswagen has been cheating the U.S. consumer and blatantly deceiving the Environmental Protection Agency. In September 2015, Volkswagen admitted to having installed illegal software in their vehicles that purposefully turned off the full emission control system during an emissions test. This allowed the car to register significantly lower levels of nitrogen oxide – thus meeting U.S. standards. When the car was on the open road, however, the full emission control system would operate, spewing up to 40% more emissions into the air.

This admission of guilt came after a yearlong investigation, thus prompting the EPA to order Volkswagen to recall nearly 500,000 vehicles in the United States. Under the Clean Air Act, Volkswagen could be fined up to $18 billion for deceiving Americans and manipulating emissions testing. In addition, the Justice Department has launched a full criminal investigation. If you own one of the cars affected by the recall, contact a Volkswagen recall attorney for help today.

Which Volkswagen Cars Were Affected by the Recall?

  • Jetta (model year 2009-2015)
  • Beetle (model year 2009-2015)
  • Audi A3 (model years 2009-2015)
  • Golf (model years 2009-2015)
  • Passat (model years 2014-2015)

If you owned or leased one of the Volkswagen or Audi models listed above, you may have a cause to file a claim against the manufacturer. Volkswagen owners were deceived into purchasing a car that did not match the environmental friendliness that was advertised. Even if Volkswagen offers a fix that allows the diesel cars to meet U.S. standards, it will come with quite a price. Automotive experts warn consumers that any fix will adversely affect the fuel economy of the vehicle, as well as the engine power, torque, and vehicle performance they’ve come to know and love.
