I am sure you have now heard about VW’s software that was only kicking in full emission controls when the cars were being tested. Once on the road the controls were reduced so apparently the cars were emitting 10 – 40 times more NOx.
As a owner of one of the now cars in the EPA’s headlights I am torn. I love the performance, handling and amazing economy that our Golf TDI has given us over the last 3 years of ownership but at the same time I realize perhaps that it was too good to be true.
I will be curious what Volkswagen will offer owners (if anything) but if they send a new Golf GTI my way I wouldn’t complain.
Of course I would have to rename the web site to Green GTI 🙂
