VW fraud

I don’t understand why epa etc does not test pollution and mpg at same time.
I think DAMAGE is around $2000 each and PUNITIVE should be larger so $5000 would fair awarded in class action suit in USA.
VW/Audi/Porsche are responsible for damages to environment, buyer, and competition since fraud caused lost of customers for others. Other car makers probably have some skeleton in closet too so probably not going to sue VW until some car maker throw first stone and whole industry will jump on bandwagon. Pollution causes millions of death so VW’s extra pollution will probably cause around 1000 death.
It is too expensive and unrealistic to meet future regulations, easiest is stop using small diesel in a city.  Some estimate 40% reduction in MPG.
google “real7777 co2” “real7777 VW”
VW caused damages to prius sales due to fraud device too.  Toyota complained to EU 10 years ago but got ignored. Suzuki partnered with VW mainly for diesel engine, but VW’s fraud made partnership useless. Irony is right before scandal greedy thug VW sued suzuki for not using VW technology. Suzuki will have easy time winning the suit and suzuki should counter suit.  This means VW must return all financial gain from partnership PLUS punitive damage if suzuki sues.
Suzuki have 4 passenger gas car that is 87mpg for $8000 in Japan.  For environment, USA should allow 80mpg and above mileage car with less safety standard since they are much safer than a motorcycle.  Things like painted yellow/orange and additional education etc.


One thought on “VW fraud

    Since the dieselgate scandal broke in September, Volkswagen executives and representatives have appeared publicly shocked and genuinely dismayed with the revelation that the then-largest global automaker had cheated emissions regulations with over 11 million diesel-powered models worldwide. Turns out, however, it might have been an open secret all along.

    According to Reuters, Germany’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reported that — according to documents from VW’s internal investigation — that software designed to cheat emissions tests was openly discussed in the halls of VW since 2006.

    Unsurprisingly, the story plays out just how many of us had long speculated. VW execs set unrealistic goals for the future power, emissions and efficiency of affordable diesel products. Rather than simply tell them they were wrong, the engine teams decided to fake it and cheat.

    “Within the company there was a culture of ‘we can do everything,’ so to say something cannot be done, was not acceptable,” Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported. “Instead of coming clean to the management board that it cannot be done, it was decided to commit fraud.”

    Beginning in 2006, VW received engine management systems from automotive parts supplier Bosch and then manipulated the operations. Most engine team members reportedly felt comfortable with the decision, since they believed regulators would not be able to detect their fraud — specious reasoning at best.

    Publicly, VW has said it didn’t collectively learn of the cheating until late in 2015. Before that, the deception was kept to a small group of people — as few as 20, it has been reported.

    Mashable has reached out to Volkswagen for comment on this story but have not yet received a response.
