The Fines Just Keep Coming For Volkswagen
May 19th, 2017
Dieselgate seems to be never ending for Volkswagen. Last week, a U.S. district judge granted final approval on an agreement for Volkswagen to pay at least $1.22 billion to fix or buy back 80,000 3.0-liter vehicles in the United States that were linked to the dieselgate scandal, according to Reuters.
Reuters also reports that for those opting for a fix will receive between $7,000 and $16,000 in compensation. This is dependent on if the emission fixes are approved by regulators in a timely fashion. Dieselgate seems to keep making the news and probably will continue to for many years to come.
