It really is not certain what will take place to the vehicles themselves, although a judge has given a December 19th deadline. VW may possibly end up acquiring back 20,000 of the three-liter cars and fixing the emissions of the remaining 60,000.
These autos (which consist of Audi and Porsche models) never violate American emissions laws really so egregiously as the 2-liter models. They “only” exceed the limits by up to nine occasions versus 40 instances on the two-liter machines. Nevertheless, it really is clear that regulators want to account for every single instance of emissions abuse, not just the most apparent examples.
