Volkswagen Diesel Fix Still Won’t Be Compliant

Customers have been waiting patiently for the official fix notice to come from Volkswagen. The automaker is still in the works with regulators on the details of the repairs needed on their 2.0L TDI diesel motors to bring them into compliance. However, recent news on the projected repair plans is stating that even when the cars are repaired by Volkswagen they will still not comply with clean air laws.

The planned fix apparently will only reduce the over pollution by the 2.0L diesel by approximately 80 to 90 percent which gets the vehicles near CARB requirements, but that’s still not officially considered compliant. What’s more is that the regulator seems to be OK with it. According to Daniel Becker, Director of the Safe Climate Campaign, “For reasons they didn’t state, they’re allowing fixed vehicles to not be fixed, but to allow vehicles to emit twice as much pollution as they otherwise would allow.”
