Volkswagen's diesel fix for Passat approved by US

Volkswagen's diesel fix for Passat approved by US

Volkswagen's fix for the diesel Passat has been approved by US regulators. With this, the German car maker will issue a recall for 84,390 Passat sedans that were sold in the country between 2012 and 2014.

The recall will bring the emissions of the said Passat diesel cars on par with the current emission standards in the country. A similar fix for the 2015-manufactured Passat was approved by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), earlier this year. This recall will be applicable only forr the manual variants of the Passat.

Last year, Volkswagen agreed to buy back upto 4.75 lakh units of 2.0-liter diesel vehicles that had been sold in the United States or offer fixes if regulators approved. Volkswagen has earmarked USD 25 billion to make amends for the dieselgate scandal, in which the company has been accused of having devised a way to cheat its way through diesel emissions certification testing. As for India, the emission standards aren't as stringent as the ones in the US or Europe. Nevertheless, Volkswagen had recalled 3.23 lakh diesel cars a few months ago.
