For several weeks now, Volkswagen has been rocked by product liability lawsuits from the United States and Europe after its illegal emissions testing practices became public. The motor company put software in several of its Turbo Diesel Injection (TDI) car models designed to fool emissions tests. In reality, none of the affected cars are compliant with U.S. emissions law.
The following models and years of Volkswagen cars carried the illegal software:
- Audi A3 (2010-2015)
- VW Beetle (2012-2015)
- VW Beetle Convertible (2012-2015)
- VW Golf (2010-2015)
- VW Golf Sportwagen (2015)
- VW Jetta (2009-2015)
- VW Jetta Sportwagen (2009-2014)
- VW Passat (2012-2015)
If your car is one of the models listed above, and your car has a “TDI” logo on it, you have been adversely affected by Volkswagen’s illegal business practices. The car you paid thousands of dollars for has lost a great deal of value in the eyes of the public, and will have to go through a recall process that could end up reducing its power, its gas mileage, or both. Volkswagen’s scandal will have reduced the total value of your assets, through no fault of your own.
The damages Volkswagen has done to the value of your car may qualify you for a lawsuit against the company. Owners of car dealerships and wholesale auto dealers who stock Volkswagen cars also likely have grounds for a lawsuit as well. But you’ll need to act fast, because in general the people who file a lawsuit earliest are the most likely to be compensated.
