Volkswagen Gets Early Green Light for Diesel Fix

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJuly 27th, 2016


After a long wait, owners of those dirty diesels from Volkswagen may finally get some clarity on what to expect next. The United States District Court has given a preliminary green light to Volkswagen’s proposed fix to bring their 2.0L diesel vehicles into compliance. The settlement totalling $14.7-billion in the US also includes customer restitutions, a buy back plan, as well as the hefty fines resulting from the diesel scandal.

Owners will have to wait for the paperwork to process, but there should be information coming from Volkswagen in the mail to let owners know what their options are moving forward. The next official step will happen at the final approval hearing on October 18, 2016.
