VW suspend sale of cars

2 October 2015

Volkswagen-Logo Volkswagen has suspended the sale of 4,000 vehicles in the UK, after all the nonsense concerning the emissions scandal.

The car-maker said that they are suspending sales of vehicles with the EA189 engine voluntarily, across their own VW passenger cars, as well as commercial vehicles, and motors from Seat, Skoda and Audi.

This follows the news that 11 million of their cars had been fitted with software designed to cheat emissions testing.

Volkswagen have said that they will be telling customers how to get their vehicles sorted out and corrected in the "near future". This refit will be one of the biggest recalls in history by a single manufacturer, certainly the biggest since the Takata airbag scandal that saw millions recalled.

And now, VW have a load of people wanting to penalise them, with German prosecutors opening investigations against former Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn, and of course, in the UK, the UK the Department for Transport has launched their own investigations which will see retests on engine emissions and the like.

VW will be getting in touch with customers, so if you drive one of the affected cars, you don't need to do anything yet.
