Why would that be? What's different in the Touareg, Q7, and Cayanne's emission system?

500,000 vehicles and a potential $35,500/vehicle fine, or $18B!? High pucker factor going on in the VAG halls today...

USA Today article.

Article states: The agency said the diesel cars that violated federal standard were the 2009-14 Volkswagen Jetta, Beetle and Golf, the 2014-15 Volkswagen Passat, and the 2009-15 Audi A3.

4 cylinder TDI.

Ok,now what happens ? A new emissions system maybe? New DPFs ,cats etc. This is why so many car manufacturers won't touch the deisel issues.

Here is what EPA/CA stated ...

Carmaker allegedly used software that circumvents emissions testing for certain air pollutants


09/18/2015: EPA, California Notify Volkswagen of Clean Air Act Violations

Here in IL and I would assume a few more states, our local EPA doesn't even test diesels for emissions, they're exempt (as well as EV's and NG powered vehicles)

Here is the key 'admission' by VW of its presence:

"EPA and CARB uncovered the defeat device software after independent analysis by researchers at West Virginia University, working with the International Council on Clean Transportation, a non-governmental organization, raised questions about emissions levels, and the agencies began further investigations into the issue. In September, after EPA and CARB demanded an explanation for the identified emission problems, Volkswagen admitted that the cars contained defeat devices."

Wow, that it is pervasive within the corporation leaves me speechless.

A punch in the gut for all VW owners. I guess integrity is not part of the VW culture.

Guessing we are getting 1/2 the story.

Wondering if it is out of spec all the time except when being tested, or just drops out for a few conditions to aid drivability (or some other decent reason) and just makes sure it doers not drop out during testing?

Always wondered why my 2010 TDI Golf Wagen (Jetta Sportswagen) did not 'Need' Adblue while my 2014 Touareg did. Now we know why. Very disappointed in VW
