In late September 2015, the German automaker was forced to admit that it used cheater software on its diesel cars to get past American emissions tests, the toughest on earth. The revelation rocked the world. Once it was caught, VW revealed that it had been rigging diesel cars to cheat on those tests since 2009. Eight of its most popular diesel models are on the list at www.waynewright.net.
It’s likely that you, a close neighbor or someone down the block has one of those cars. VW admitted that “11 million” of its diesel cars had software designed to cheat on American laboratory emissions tests, according The New York Times.

Evidence against Volkswagen is mounting
Volkswagen was the largest car manufacturer in the world when the scandal broke. Now it turns out there may be more to its devious cheating plan than it originally admitted. The German automaker has just revealed that a type of cheater software may be installed in its 2016 diesel models - rigging them to pass American emission standards.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is investigating. The 2016 cars may not have the same cheater devices as those installed on the VW diesel cars manufactured between 2009 and 2015. But VW admits that its 2016 diesels have an “auxiliary emissions control device.” Regulators are deeply suspicious. The devices may help the exhaust systems run cleaner during tests than they actually do on the road.
The unsettling news is more proof of the German auto maker’s dangerous and patently illegal behavior in utter disregard of its effect on those it victimized with its illegal plan to boost its profits. If the investigations show that VW intended to go on cheating on emissions tests, it may mean higher fines for the German auto maker and possibly greater settlements in lawsuits, given the company’s obviously audacious plan to continue its cheating.
