Multiple Volkswagen models in recall fears over emissions
Volkswagen has a lot of explaining to do because of breaking strict emission laws in the US. The end result is that 500,000 models are affected by a new recall, and there are now fears that models in the UK could also be affected.
We do not yet know if people in the UK need to be worried or not, but it does make you wonder seeing as though how deceitful Volkswagen has been. The models in question are the Jettas, Beetles, Golfs, Audi A3s built from 2009 to 2009, and also the Passet built between 2014 and 2015.
The affected models are all diesels, which used an illegal system to detect when the car was being tested for its emissions and then lowered the rate of its pollution. The moment the test was over, the system would then turn the countermeasure off and then return to normal use, which is very polluting.
Like we said, it is uncertain if this will spread outside of the US, but it does make you wonder seeing as though the EU has very strict emission rules of its own. Got another VW problem you would like to discuss, then you can do so here.
