Volkswagen Recalling Millions of Diesel Vehicles

Volkswagen is in the preliminary stages of planning a massive recall of diesel cars affected by the recent scandal, in which the company admitted installing software in some diesel cars that allowed them to pass United States emission standards. The software was designed to make the cars appear that they were within the legal limit for emission standards, when in fact they were not. Volkswagen has admitted that the software was installed in approximately 11 million vehicles, but says that the software was not activated in all of the vehicles. The actual number of vehicles that will be subject to the recall has not yet been determined. The refitting of the affected cars will involve changing of the software that gives a false reading of the engine emissions.

Volkswagen is currently in the initial planning stages for the recall. Any and all changes to the software must be approved by the appropriate State and Federal regulatory agencies before the recall can be implemented.

More information will be available on a website to be established by Volkswagen. The company hopes to have additional information available to customers within the next month.
