As you recall, the above vehicle manufacturers were caught in the biggest emission scandal ever, rigging certain of their products to bypass mandated federal and California air pollution controls except when the cars were undergoing a required inspection.
The vehicles - cars and SUVs - were marketed as having "clean diesel" technology, thereby misleading those whose concerns for the environment may have led them into purchasing or leasing in the first place.
Under a settlement with California and United States authorities, the company has agreed to provide the following options to the government and/or folks who got caught by this corporate scam:
- Cash payments
- Vehicle buybacks
- Early lease terminations
- Potential emission modifications & extended vehicle warranties
- Environmental remediation
- Promotion of Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) technology
However, additional vehicles were also part of the emissions scandal. A complete list can be found here: ARB Volkswagen Information
