Knaller-Urteil im Diesel-Skandal: Auch VW Software Update ist manipuliert (wallstreet:online, German)
Apparently the European-market "fix" for EA189s had another defeat device in it, shutting the emissions controls off below 10 °C (50 °F), above 32 °C (90 °F), or above...

I think that's a first, a European court ruling that ordered VW to buy back a Dieselgate car, even after a fix attempt.
Edit: This thread has been split off of the Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability thread. Some posts (including this post) from that thread have been duplicated for context.
UCS has updated their carbon footprint data to use 2016 grid emissions data, and expand the...
Feel free to move this one to Non VW Group Diesels if it's more appropriate there, but given that this is a Dieselgate-related event, even if it's not VW...
So, that's interesting - Dieselgate fallout is now hitting Euro 1 through 4 models. That includes standards that took effect for what we'd call model year 1993 (although the Mk2 ECOdiesels/Umweltdiesels adopted them early), all the way...
This will likely be the same engine as in the Cruze and Equinox diesels, and the Terrain will essentially be the same vehicle as the Equinox, just higher trim. 136 hp, 236 lb-ft, it appears, with a 6-speed automatic.
Looks like the next-gen Camry Hybrid's engine will be 41% thermally efficient, and 40% efficient for the standard engine. And, the part-load efficiency range looks decent on the standard engine - not quite as good as a TDI, but not far off...
So, cheating on fuel economy tests, it looks like, by using a transmission map that's almost certainly terrible to drive, but very efficient, and would never be encountered by a normal driver.
Looks like the repositioning of VAG's powertrain strategy away from diesel, as well as the cost savings necessary to pay for Dieselgate, and route R&D funds towards electrification, is taking effect. To be...

After destination, MSRP ranges from $27,965 to $33,965. With an 8.8 kWh battery, it'll be eligible for a $4502 tax credit.

Basically, looks like technology's advanced faster than the EPA expected, but people kept buying SUVs and crossovers, so the automakers think they can't meet the...
I think it's time to part with my 99.5 Golf GL, so here it is for sale. It'd make either a good parts donor, or a decent project car.
