Volkswagen & Audi Diesel Emission Recall Lawsuit

Our law firm has filed a class action lawsuit with regard to Volkswagen Jetta (MY 2009-2015), Volkswagen Beetle (MY 2009-2015), Volkswagen Golf (MY 2009-2015), Volkswagen Passat (MY 2014-2015) and Audi A3 (MY 2009-2015) vehicles that contain Type EA 189 and EA 288 diesel engines.  In addition on November 2, 2015 the EPA expanded its investigation to also include the Volkswagen Touareg (MY 2014), Porsche Cayenne (MY 2015), Audi A6 Quattro (MY 2016), Audi A7 Quattro (MY 2016), Audi A8 (MY 2016) and Audi Q5 (MY 2016) that contain the 3-Liter diesel engines. These vehicles are typically referred to as Volkswagen or Audi TDI models.  Our lawsuit alleges that Volkswagen and Audi designed, manufactured, distributed and sold hundreds of thousands of diesel Vehicles to consumers in the United States, which they falsely touted as being “clean” and efficient, while still preserving vehicle performance. However, all of the above “CleanDiesel” vehicles contained a “defeat device” that was designed to defeat vehicle emissions testing programs and perpetuate the narrative that VW and Audi’s diesel vehicles could be both low-emission and still maintain good performance.

If you are a current or former owner or lessee of one of the above vehicles and would like to learn more about our lawsuit, please contact our Volkswagen Class Action Lawyers today for a FREE CONSULTATION.

Attorneys for VW & Audi “CleanDiesel” Class Action

Our lawsuit alleges that the TDI vehicles were sold or leased in the United States while unbeknownst to regulators and consumers, they were actually expelling up to forty times the amount of nitrous oxide (NOx) and other pollutants into the air than the levels represented by Volkswagen and Audi.  In a September, 18, 2015 news release the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) announced a notice of violation served upon Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., which  alleges that certain vehicles with 2.0 liter diesel engines were “using a defeat device in cars to evade clean air standards is illegal and a threat to public health.”  In reality, the vehicles were far from being “clean” as they were advertised, and when they are brought into compliance as will be required by the EPA, they will suffer from reduced performance.  Our lawsuit further alleges that the VW diesel vehicles are less desirable both to their current owners, who would not have purchased them had they known about the deception, and will also be worth less in the secondary market.
