Audi Diesel Compensation Claims
The prestige brand of Audi has been brought into the news for the wrong reasons following the Volkswagen N0X / C02 admission that it had been cheating the emissions levels of its diesel EA189 engines. Why is Audi implicated? It is because as from 1966, Audi was majority owned (99.5%) by Volkswagen. It is believed that similar “cheat software” used on Volkswagen were also used on the Audi cars and thus will be effected by the revelations.

The following makes are affected by being part of the VW Group of motor vehicles.
It is reported by the Daily Mirror that the United States Volkswagen CEO, Michael Horn that VW had made mistakes and feared an industry meltdown. There are about 11 million cars that have been affected. Of those vehicles it is estimated that the Audi have about 400,000 Diesel cars in the UK that may be subject to the “cheat” software and thus could be subject to a compensation claim.
The “cheat” software is said to mask the true value of the emissions and without it, could generate as much as 40 times greater pollution.
