Diesel emissions scandal: Volkswagen recalls and fixes 50,000 cars so far

Diesel emissions scandal: Volkswagen recalls and fixes 50,000 cars so far

Volkswagen, as we know, is currently facing the dreadful aftermath of the mega diesel emissions scandal that ultimately affected millions of motorists in the US and Europe. Looking to make things better and regain assurance among its customer base, VW dealers have started fixing the affected cars.  

Volkswagen, however, has only fixed about 50,000 cars so far. The figure seems minuscule when you consider the fact that 8.5 million cars have been affected in Europe alone. Dealers reportedly have fixed around 50,000 diesel vehicles across Europe since the start of this year. The brand is hoping to fix most of the affected cars within 2016; however, there would still be cars that would not be fixed until 2017. 

Now although the recall operations have begun in Europe, VW customers in the US have still not been compensated yet as the outcome of the initial agreement between VW and the US government will be announced by the end of next month.
