VW/Audi Emissions Lawsuit - FREE Claim Review

If you purchased a “Clean Diesel” Volkswagen or Audi vehicle, which have been recalled for allegedly featuring software designed to evade federal emissions regulations, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses.

  • Loss of value
  • Reduced efficiency
  • Inability to sell vehicles
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Increased eco-footprint
  • Civil penalties
  • Decreased performance

Lawsuits Allege That These Damages Are Tied to the Volkswagen and Audi Diesel Recall.

The Environmental Protection Agency has accused Volkswagen of installing software designed to fool regulators into believing that its vehicles advertised as “Clean Diesels” complied with federal emissions standards. According to the EPA, the German automaker used a “defeat device” on more than 400,000 diesel cars in the United States, in order to evade federal emissions regulations and convince U.S. regulators that its vehicles met Clean Air Act standards. On the contrary, the recalled diesel vehicles were actually emitting nitrogen oxides at up to 40 times the standard level, a fact that has reduced the value of the vehicles, made them nearly impossible to sell, and may have also caused harm to human health. According to VW/Audi recall lawyers, owners of recalled VW and Audi vehicles may suffer the following damages:

  • Loss of value
  • Reduced efficiency
  • Inability to sell vehicles
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Increased eco-footprint
  • Civil penalties
  • Decreased performance

Potential Losses from Recalled VW and Audi Vehicles

Consumers who purchased or leased Volkswagen or Audi “diesel” vehicles model years 2009-2015, equipped with the falsely-advertised fuel-saving engines, reportedly paid somewhere between $1,000 and $7,000 more for their vehicles, compared to vehicles with regular gas engines. These consumers purchased their “Clean Diesel” vehicles in an effort to minimize their environmental impact, and may now be entitled to compensation for their losses, since it has been discovered that Volkswagen was ripping off consumers, having adopted a “sophisticated” algorithm that activated so-called “Clean Diesel” vehicles’ full emissions controls when they were being tested for emissions performance. As a result of these findings, Volkswagen faces fines for violations of the Clean Air Act of up to $18 billion in the United States alone, and is also part of a criminal probe by the U.S. Justice Department.

According to the EPA, the “defeat device” allegedly installed by Volkswagen was discovered after researchers at West Virginia University and the International Council on Clean Transportation voiced concerns about emissions levels in Volkswagen vehicles. “We intend to hold Volkswagen responsible,” says Cynthia Giles, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance. “VW was concealing the facts from the EPA, the state of California and from consumers. VW may be liable for civil penalties and injunctive relief for the violations alleged.” According to Volkswagen, the “Clean Diesel” recall affects as many as 11 million vehicles worldwide and includes the following models:

  • 2009-2015 Jetta TDI
  • 2012-2015 Beetle TDI
  • 2010-2015 Golf TDI
  • 2015 Golf Sportwagen TDI
  • 2012-2015 Beetle TDI Convertible
  • 2010-2015 Audi A3 TDI
  • 2012-2015 Passat TDI

Owners of the recalled Volkswagen and Audi vehicles paid a premium for diesel vehicles that saved on fuel costs and reduced their environmental impact, and the automaker’s deceptive actions have not only cost consumers money associated with a loss of car value and an inability to re-sell the vehicles, they may have also had a negative impact on consumer health, caused by the harmful pollutants emitted by vehicles that were sold as “Clean Diesel” vehicles. What’s more, should VW decide to make the recalled vehicles comply with federal emissions standards, the change would likely significantly reduce the vehicles’ performance characteristics, including their efficiency and horsepower, and the vehicles would no longer perform as they did when purchased or leased.
