If you follow the news, you’ve likely heard about the Volkswagen car emissions scandal. The German automaker recently revealed that their TDI® diesel models contained software designed to fool emissions regulations, and that the vehicles did not meet minimum emissions requirements. VW has been selling these defective products since 2009.
If you own one of the models affected by the Volkswagen scandal, you have been effectively defrauded by the auto company, which misrepresented the emissions performance of the cars in a way that makes them nearly impossible to re-sell. You likely have grounds for a lawsuit against Volkswagen, and should contact McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates at (888) 353-5513 as soon as possible for a free initial legal consultation.
What Models Are Affected?
The emissions requirements Volkswagen tried to cheat only pertain to cars with diesel engines, and have nothing to do with the miles per gallon your vehicle gets. Instead, these cars spill toxins into the air that are hazardous to human health.
The following models contain the illegal software:
- 2009-2015 Volkswagen Jetta
- 2009-2015 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen
- 2012-2015 Volkswagen Passat
- 2012-2015 Volkswagen Beetle
- 2012-2015 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
- 2010-2015 Volkswagen Golf
- 2009-2015 Audi A3
If you bought one of these defective vehicles, not only have you lost a great deal of value due to information Volkswagen concealed from you, but you have unknowingly exposed yourself and your family members to hazardous chemicals at levels declared illegal by the United States government. You deserve compensation for these damages, and it won’t cost you anything to see if we can help.
