California Orders Recall of Volkswagen Diesel Cars
The California Air Resources Board told Volkswagen Group to recall all of its vehicles containing 3-litter diesel engines on Nov. 25. The car manufacturer, which is under fire for releasing thousand of vehicles with illegal emissions software installed, was given 45 days to comply. This recall includes affected VW, Audi, and Porsche models with diesel engines.
Porsche responded to the letter by stating it will “continue its efforts to comply fully with all regulatory authorities” and that it “awaits detailed information from engine supplier, Audi AG, as to specific actions which will be necessary to correct and rectify [the situation].”
Since the revelation that Volkswagen used software technology to cheat emissions tests in approximately 500,000 U.S. vehicles, the company has been attempting to update affected 2-liter, four-cylinder diesel engines. Thousands of other vehicles around the world are still being found to include the emissions software.
