VW confirms Euro 5 and Euro 6 EA288 engines not affected by defeat device

By / 5 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

The carmaker added that “new vehicles of the Volkswagen Group offered within the European Union with those engines comply with legal requirements and environmental standards”.

The news follows its recent confirmation that new EU6-compliant vehicles offered within the European Union fulfil all legal requirements and environmental standards.

However, VW said it was looking into earlier versions of the engine to see if they were affected.

Fleets wishing to see if their vehicles are affected can visit the VW, Audi, Skoda and SEAT websites and put in their VIN (Vehicle Identification Number).

Volkswagen has also confirmed that remedial action on the vehicles will begin in January 2016 – at no cost to customers – with the recall work first being presented to the responsible authorities.
