Volkswagen returns over $9.5million in settlement funds over “dieselgate” fiasco

The EPA claimed that certain VW and Audi vehicles used software that met clean diesel emissions standards when hooked up to testing equipment but then switched to a dirtier mode when disconnected. In reality, this caused the TDIs to spew up to 40 times more tailpipe emissions when driven in the real world.In a recent report, we came to know Volkswagen Group has paid out over $9.5 billion since 2016 in settlement funds to drivers of affected vehicles, which includes: 2009-2015 model year Volkswagen Jetta, Beetle and Golf, the 2014-2015 VW Passat, and 2009-2015 Audi A3, totaling roughly 482,000 diesel passenger cars.
