    VW faces 'dieselgate' legal threat in France


    https://www.connexionfrance.com/Fren...reat-in-France


    Pan-European group that has launched bid for compensation in France has already started proceedings in the Netherlands and Belgium




    Car manufacturer Volkswagen is being threatened with legal action in France following the so-called 'Dieselgate' emissions scandal.
    The Diesel Emissions Justice Foundation (DEJF) has already launched proceedings in the Netherlands and Belgium. It is now starting its campaign France, where - it says - nearly 950,000 cars were impacted by the "dieselgate" scandal.
    Across Europe, 8.5 million cars were affected.
    "Volkswagen has admitted its mistake. It should compensate consumers," DEJF's Maria Jose Azar-Baud said. "We have already brought together several thousand consumers in Europe."
    According to American class action lawsuits against Volkswagen, the cost of correcting the software can rise to around €2,000 per car.
    She said the DEJF - which has the backing of the Familles Rurales consumer association - will seek to negotiate with Volkswagen, but is ready to launch court proceedings in France and elsewhere if the company digs its heels in. About a dozen separate actions launched in different European countries could merge into a single, joint campaign.
    In 2015, Volkswagen admitted it had intentionally programmed software in more than 11 million cars to cheat emissions tests between 2009 and 2015.
    The scandal has already cost the manufacturer more than $33billion in legal fees, fines and compensation, mainly in the United States. As recently as last Wednesday, a court in Canada ordered it to pay $150million after it admitted violating environmental laws.

    He's not around that much anymore, but he was the OG Phaeton guy on VWVortex. His work got me into it, it's the only reason I bought mine, and the retrofits I've done are based on his guides. He wrote most of the VCDS label files, and IIRC the car even spent some time at RTHQ. If there were ever a car I'd trade my 2006 for, his would have been it. I kinda wish I knew where it went, but AFAIK the new owner has never popped up and said hello.
    Silence gives consent.

    But the Tokyo-based firm did in 2016 admit to falsifying fuel-economy tests for 25 years to make the cars seem more efficient than they were.

    VW to resume talks over German class action on emissions

    Consumer protection organization Vzbv said it had accepted the court invitation


    https://www.autoblog.com/2020/02/20/...07bL_eZMufY0Nm


    BERLIN Volkswagen and the German consumer protection organization have agreed to resume talks aimed at reaching a deal in a class action lawsuit over the carmaker's rigging of diesel emissions tests.
    VW admitted using illegal software to cheat U.S. diesel engine tests in 2015, a scandal which has cost it more than $30 billion in vehicle refits, fines and provisions.








    Nearly all U.S. owners of affected cars agreed to take part in a $25 billion settlement in 2016 in the United States, but VW has said there was no legal basis for consumers in Germany to seek compensation due to differences in law.
    A court in the town of Brunswick, which has urged Volkswagen to settle the lawsuit, said on Thursday the parties to the case had agreed on the advice of the court to resume discussions to try to reach a settlement.
    State-financed consumer protection organization Vzbv said it had accepted the court invitation and said talks should take place soon. A Volkswagen spokesman confirmed the new talks, but declined to comment further.
    Vzbv said it had not changed its demand that any settlement must be fair, transparent and verifiable.
    Vzbv has said it aimed to show that owners of VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat cars with so-called type EA 189 diesel engines have been intentionally harmed by VWs use of software that was used to cheat emissions tests.
    The German class action was made possible after the cabinet approved a draft law in 2018 allowing consumer protection organizations to litigate on behalf of consumers, avoiding the high legal costs that might put people off legal action.
    When the diesel scandal broke, 2.4 million cars with defeat devices were on German roads. In the meantime, most have received a software update.
