Quite right too as there are a number of complaints appearing about the 2.0 fix - increased diesel clatter, rough running, jerky and premature autobox changes - which, if they occurred on the 3.0, could make for an unpleasant drive.

^^Not all will keep the car, and that is where the opportunity lies for people like me who will sell back a Gen 1 TDI.

I think you're referring to the rushed European fix. If those problems happen on the US fix Volkswagen will be in new trouble. They have said that there will be an increase in diesel clatter on the 2.0, but also said shifting has been improved. It's worth reading the fix description.

Eh, it won't be a PMITA prison, it will be a white-collar prison with doors instead of bars. The mafia calls it "The Country Club".

Exclamation 6 Volkswagen Executives Charged as Company Pleads Guilty in Emissions Case

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/11/b...inal.html?_r=0

WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors announced criminal charges on Wednesday against six Volkswagen executives for their roles in the company’s emissions-cheating scandal, a sharp turn by a departing administration that is trying to remake its image of being soft on corporate crime.

6 Volkswagon employees indicted in emissions scandal; VW fined $4.3B ? In Depth. The Denver Post

Quote:
In announcing the charges and the plea bargain, Justice Department prosecutors detailed a large and elaborate scheme inside the German automaker to commit fraud and then cover it up, with at least 40 employees allegedly involved in destroying evidence.

“Volkswagen obfuscated, they denied and they ultimately lied,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said.

Wow...Nice to see execs actually finally charged for bad behavior.
I have to wonder how did GM execs get away with killing people by failing to replace a $6.00 ignition?? And GM only paid a 900 million fine.
