Volkswagen Emissions Lawyer in Jackson Mississippi
Diaz Law Firm fights for VW buyers
The VW brand breeds loyalty and is known for being eco-friendly, which is why buyers are outraged over the emissions scandal involving Volkswagen’s software, which was designed to manipulate emissions tests. VW has reported that more than 11 million diesel-powered vehicles are affected and many are part of a recall. Volkswagen put profits ahead of people, safety and the environment. As a result, consumers have been misled and their diesel-powered vehicles have lost value.
The VW diesel models affected by the recall include:
- Audi A3 TDI, 2010 – 2015
- Audi A6 Quattro TDI, 2014 – 2016
- Audi A7 Quattro TDI, 2014 – 2016
- Audi A8 TDI, 2014 – 2016
- Audi A8L TDI, 2014 – 2016
- Audi Q5 TDI, 2014 – 2016
- Audi Q7 TDI, 2009 – 2016
- Porsche Cayenne TDI, 2013 – 2016
- Volkswagen Beetle TDI, 2012 – 2015
- Volkswagen Beetle Convertible TDI, 2012 – 2015
- Volkswagen Golf TDI, 2010 – 2015
- Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen TDI, 2015
- Volkswagen Jetta TDI, 2009 – 2015
- Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen TDI, 2009 – 2014
- Volkswagen Passat TDI, 2012 – 2015
- Volkswagen Touareg TDI, 2009 – 2016
Members of our firm have purchased VW vehicles and understand the value in not only the VW brand, but also the trust that loyal buyers place in the company. When you purchased one of the above-mentioned VW diesel-powered vehicles, you thought you were helping the environment. You likely paid more for your vehicle and pay more for diesel fuel. Emission standards are important to you, so when news breaks that VW installed software on several diesel models as a means of cheating emissions tests, you should be upset.
The actions of VW have been declared “illegal and a threat to public health,” says Cynthia Giles, an administrator for the EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance. The EPA first learned of the VW emissions issue after pollution analysts in Europe found problems coming from various VW models. After hearing the information, the EPA conducted their own tests, and the results suggested different emissions levels than reported in initial regulatory testing.
The U.S. Justice Department has opened a criminal probe into VW’s actions. The EPA is also investigating, and foreign regulators will likely follow. In response, Volkswagen’s CEO has resigned, and the company stated it would set aside at least billions to address the issues faced.
