VW Emissions Scandal


The Law Offices of Gerald S. Ohn, APC is investigating claims that Volkswagen may have installed software on several diesel models of its cars as a means of cheating on VW emission tests conducted by American regulators. This conduct has been declared “illegal and a threat to public health” by Cynthia Giles, Assistant Administrator for the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance.

The EPA initially became concerned about VW emissions after pollution analysts in Europe noted suspicious emission problems with various VW models. The EPA initiated testing on VW vehicles. The results of these tests suggested far different emissions levels than had been indicated by the initial regulatory testing.

The VW diesel models suspected to have illegally circumvented regulatory testing include:

Volkswagen Jetta, 2009-2015

Volkswagen Beetle, 2009-2015

Volkswagen Golf, 2009-2015

Volkswagen Passat, 2014-2015

Audi A3, 2009-2015

If you have purchased or leased one of the above-listed VW or Audi vehicles, you may contact the Law Offices of Gerald S. Ohn, APC to report your experience. There is no charge for review of your complaint.
