Volkswagen emissions news reignites models with diesel engines

Things look as though they might get a whole lot worse for Volkswagen over the latest emissions news, as it reignites concerns for older models with larger diesel engines. It was only last month when the EPA suggested that 3.0-liter engine cars could have been using the cheat software, which the German carmaker believed was not true at the time.

Well, here we are in November, and both Volkswagen and Audi are now telling the Environmental Protection Agency that models going back to 2009 with these larger diesel engines could in fact contain the defeat devices.

This would mean that 75,000 more cars are affected by this latest news, so that now means a total of 85,000 Volkswagen, Porsche, and Audi cars in the US with the 3.0-liter engine look set to be recalled going back to 2009.

However, this number could be far higher when you take in Europe, which includes Germany and the UK. There had been 482,000 cars in the US alone, although that figure was in the millions worldwide.

We now wonder what other engines will be implicated in this whole cheat software saga?
