Take Legal Action Now

The EPA determined that VW manufactured and installed devices that ‘bypass, defeat, or render inoperative elements of the vehicles’ emission control system that exist to comply with CAA emission standards.

How does this harm you?

The effect of this action could result in one or all of the following:

  • Immediate reduction in the re-sale value of your car.
  • Inability to re-register your vehicle until recall repairs are completed and the expense of renting a vehicle until your car is repaired
  • The inconvenience of being part of more than 500,000 cars in line to get repaired at VW dealerships and authorized repair centers.
  • Reduction in performance and gas mileage

Why should you bother with a lawsuit?

Volkswagen’s outright lies that you were purchasing an environmentally-friendly, fuel-efficient, high-performing vehicle have not only violated your trust, but also gouged your pocket book at the point of sale.  Volkswagen’s general mark-up for diesel vehicles was thousands of dollars over the price of its non-diesel vehicles.  And, with an expected sharp decrease in fuel efficiency after Volkswagen corrects the emissions problems, you will likely pay fuel costs over the life of the vehicle hugely in excess of what you were expecting.  We will seek to compensate you for the losses caused by Volkswagen’s fraud, including:

  • Diminished value of vehicle
  • Mark-up paid for diesel vehicle
  • Increased fuel costs due to diminished mileage
  • Any and all punitive damages available
