Brilliant me thinks. I know this will cost them plenty, but I really wonder what they will do about all those diesels with the cheeky software. Owners are not going to want to have their cars reflashed with new software. Especially if their oil burners are running fine.

It's things like this that caused the need for punitive damages!

I've been saying all along, those cars stink! Now I know why.....

Everyone talks about "clean" diesels" and every time I get behind one my eyes water and my stomach turns....

I had a new Jetta pull out from a gas station right in front of me and nail it - it didn't look like he was rolling coal but it sure left a good brown cloud behind it till he took his foot out of it!

My neighbors have a Jetta diesel, they burn biodiesel and it smells like french fries when they drive past.

If I had one, I wouldn't "upgrade" it...

If not for the timing belt, I'd have bought a Jetta Diesel instead of the soul crushing Civic when my long commute got even longer...
