Notice For VW Owners Of VW Diesel V-6 Engines: More Vehicles Have Cheat Software


The VW scandal is growing. Now it appears Audi and Porsche owners better check their engines to see if they too have purchased cars equipped with emissions cheating software.

Here’s the scoop from John Voelcker with Green Car Reports.

The vehicles affected are the 2014 Volkswagen Touareg TDI, the 2015 Porsche Cayenne Diesel, and five 2016 Audi models: The A6, A8, and A8L TDI sedans; the A7 TDI hatchback; and the Q5 TDI sport utility vehicle.

About 10,000 diesel luxury vehicles from the 2014 through 2016 model years are affected.

Unsold 2015 and 2016 vehicles will likely be subject to an immediate stop-sale order, meaning that dealerships will have to take both new and used models off sale until a fix can be developed, tested, approved, and installed–a process that could take many months.
