TAMPA, Fla. - Oct. 18, 2015 - PRLog -- Volkswagen / Audi are under fire by several governments for faking emissions on diesel models to help improve fuel economy. As this scandal is unfolding, it appears that they have misled the governments across the world and the consumers by faking emission results and imbedding defeat devices within several models. This scandal unfolded as the University of West Virginia discovered that several Volkswagen / Audi models were built with defeat devices.  As they tested their own way, they realized the emission counts were up to 40 times the legal limit.

What does this mean for consumers? A recall will happen, basically asking millions of cars to go to the dealerships to change their computer systems accordingly.  This means too that consumers will lose their gas mileage my several miles per gallon. The affected diesel models include the 2009-15 Volkswagen Jetta, 2009-15 Beetle, 2009-15 Golf, 2014-15 Passat and 2009-15 Audi A3.

How did they get away with this? They imbedded cheat software within their computer programming that is specifically designed to conceal the vehicles’ emission of nitrogen oxide.  This is a pollutant that contributes to the creation of ozone and smog, and is also linked to a vast range of health problems, including asthma attacks, respiratory issues as well as premature death.

As this scandal continues to unravel, several governments have conducted search warrants on VW within their jurisdiction.  California has issued its own violations to coincide with the US EPA investigations.  Lawyers will surely be launching class action suits against the auto giant since the public was greatly misled. 2016 models are now on hold as they continue to scramble for a fix.

In Tampa, auto repair shops following Florida law know that their is a heafty fine for removing or modifying emmision controls on a motor vehicle.  It will be interesting to see what the entire world will fine Volkswagen / Audi for this scandal.
