Spotlight: Class Actions Are The Only Way For Cheated VW Customers To Recover What They're Owed

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Customers paid Volkswagon thousands of dollars in mark-ups to get "clean" diesel cars, which were not clean at all. Beginning in 2008, the company installed software in these cars designed to cheat U.S. emissions tests. Even if VW can now “fix” their car, these customers will never own the car they thought they were buying.  So not only are they out a lot of money, they were horribly deceived and many will want their money back.  Class actions are the only way to accomplish this.

Volkswagen has said up to 11 million vehicles worldwide across several of its brands contain the diesel engine with the software used to cheat on U.S. emissions tests.
