Hundreds of thousands of VW, Audi and SEAT owners are set to use new ‘class action’ rights which comes into force on 29 September 2016 pursuant to under the Consumer Rights Act, to sue Volkswagen for fixing the exhaust gas checks on its diesel cars to make them appear more green.
VW has put aside £5billion to cope with the recall crisis however the final bill could force it into bankruptcy.
Steve Fowler, editor-in chief of Auto Express, said: ‘If Volkswagen are cheating in one emissions test, how many more have they been cheating on? This could be just the tip of the iceberg. If one manufacturer is cheating, what about the others? The silence has been deafening. You would expect other car makers to be making hay at the expense of a rival but they are not. The industry should be shouting from the roof tops that they are clean. They should come out quickly and say they are not cheating.’
