the injuries cause by their deception
Were there any injuries caused by their measures to gain competitive advantage in getting round what may be largely bogus environmental regulations ? Given the scale of losses in fines in both Europe (yet to come) and the USA, combined with what its going to cost to placate aggrieved owners, I'd say the biggest harm has been to themselves ?

It's a shakedown to discourage other manufacturers from fraudulently getting around the soon to be disposed of EPA regulations. I would appeal it.

I am still awaiting the California "fix," but I have initiated the buyback process, just in case.

I would like to keep my TDI, but I am concerned that the fix will negatively affect performance, and the motor only puts our 140 HP now.
