Volkswagen’s 3.0L Diesel Fix Denied

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJuly 15th, 2016


Some may recall that Volkswagen’s 2.0L diesel engine wasn’t the only motor in the company’s lineup that was misleading emission regulators. Volkswagen 3.0L diesel motors found in Audis and Porsches were also part of the emission scandal. Recently, Volkswagen submitted a recall to regulators but the solution was far from acceptable according the the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

As CARB put it, “VW‘s and Audi’s submissions are incomplete, substantially deficient, and fall far short of meeting the legal requirements to return these vehicles to the claimed certified configuration,” Currently, vehicles built between 2009 and 2016 which use the 3.0L diesel engine is affected. If VW doesn’t come up with a plan that satisfied regulators, they may be forced to purchase the vehicles back from customers.
