NEWS: Volkswagen emission scandal widens: 11 million cars affected; EMISSIONS
USA Today @ September 22, 2015

SEPT 2015 -- Volkswagen's emissions scandal ballooned Tuesday as the automaker said it affects 11 million vehicles worldwide and will require the company to set aside 6.5 billion euro ($7.3 billion).

The startling admission instantly makes the crisis one of the most expensive automotive scandals in recent memory.

The crisis also threatens to upend the company on its rapid path to becoming the world’s largest automaker. Volkswagen had seized the title from Toyota for the first six months of 2015.

"This could damage the Volkswagen brand globally for years to come," said former automotive marketing executive Peter De Lorenzo, blogger at Autoextremist.com, in an interview. "Trust and belief in the brand has been broken."

The crisis began Friday when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency accused Volkswagen of installing sophisticated software on nearly 500,000 U.S. vehicles to manipulate emissions tests.

The technology tricks regulators into believing that 4-cylinder diesel vehicles comply with emissions standards, but the cars are actually admitting harmful pollutants at rates of up to 40 times acceptable standards. Volkswagen quickly halted sales of the cars after the allegations surfaced.

The U.S. Justice Department has opened a criminal probe into the automaker's actions. The EPA's own investigation is ongoing, and foreign regulators are expected to launch their own probes.

"Volkswagen is working at full speed to clarify irregularities concerning a particular software used in diesel engines," the company said Tuesday in a statement.

The "discrepancies" affect vehicles with what it called "Type EA 189 engines," causing "a notable deviation between bench test results and actual road use."

In the U.S., the EPA could fine Volkswagen up to $37,500 per car, which would equal a maximum fine of some $18 billion.

The scandal raises serious questions about whether high-level executives knew about the software, which had been installed on some nameplates for at least six consecutive model years.

The EPA has said the company admitted to installing the software. The agency said the software affected the four-cylinder diesel versions of the 2009 to 2015 Jetta, Beetle, Golf, the 2014 and 2015 Passat and the 2009 to 2015 Audi A3.

The episode is likely to trigger a recall and a flurry of consumer lawsuits. It may prompt the company to compensate individual car owners or other measures.

NEWS:   VW recalls 168,000 cars for fuel leaks, Jetta, Golf, Audi A3

YAHOO NEWS -- October 6,  2011 – Volkswagen is recalling 168,275 cars equipped with diesel engines because of a defect in the fuel injection system that could cause fuel leaks and fires.

The recall affects certain 2009-2012 Jetta midsize cars, and some 2010 through 2012 Golf small cars, as well as some Audi A3 models from the 2010 through 2012 model years, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday on its website. All are equipped with 2-liter TDI diesel engines.

Cracks can develop in the fuel injection system and cause fuel to leak, possibly causing fires, VW said in documents filed with federal safety regulators.

However, the company said in the documents that it doesn't know of any fires, crashes or injuries caused by the problem.

Fuel injectors squirt fuel into the cylinder, where it is ignited. The resulting explosion pushes the pistons, which move to power the cars. On some of the VW diesels, a vibration given off by the injectors can cause stress that eventually can lead to cracks in the injector fuel lines, VW said.

Volkswagen will replace a fuel injector line in some models and install dampers to cut the vibrations on all of them. The repairs will be made free of charge. The recall is expected to start in November, NHTSA said.

The recall includes 161,144 Golf and Jetta models and another 7,131 Audi A3s.

The Jettas, including SportWagens, were made from May 2008 through September of 2011, while the Golfs were made from May of 2009 through September of 2011. The A3 models were made from September of 2009 through September of 2011.

About 20 percent of the cars built during those time periods will need to have fuel lines replaced, and all will the vehicles will get the vibration dampers, VW said.

More than 20 percent of the Volkswagens sold in the U.S. have diesel engines.

The safety recall began on August 22, 2011.   11V-390

MAY 2011 -- Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2001-2004 Audi A6, model year 2002-2003 S6 and model year 2003 RS6 vehicles equipped with 4.2l engines and manufactured from June 19, 2001, through June 8, 2004. The aging of the plastic material in the fuel tank rollover valve combined with bending stress from the aluminum ventilation line to the rollover valve nipple may lead to cracking of the nipple. If this happens, a fuel leak may result. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could lead to a vehicle fire. Dealers will reinforce the nipple on the rollover valve to prevent leakage or repair the cracking at the nipple. The recall is expected to begin during June 2011.   11V-267

DECEMBER 2009 - Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2009 Q5 passenger vehicles manufactured between November 25, 2008 and June 4, 2009. A left and/or right a-pillar trim cover clip may not have been manufactured correctly, allowing the a-pillar trim to become loose when the sideguard head protection airbags deploy during a crash. If this happens, a loose trim piece could injure the front seat occupants of the vehicle. Volkswagen will inspect the clip in the middle of the left and right a-pillar covers and replace it free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2010.  09V-484

SEPTEMBER 2009 -- Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2006 through 2010 Audi A3, TT, and TT Roadster passenger vehicles manufactured between September 29, 2005 and August 26, 2009. The closing force of an internal spring of the fuel tank ventilation valve is not adequate enough to hold the valve closed under extreme driving conditions possibly allowing fuel to leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a vehicle fire could occur. Volkswagen will notify owners and Audi dealers will replace the fuel tank ventilation valve with an improved valve free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during October 2009.   09V-377

AUGUST 2009 -- Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2009 and 2010 passenger cars manufactured between September 2008 and August 2009. The wiring harness of a temperature sensor in the direct shift gearbox (DSG) may have connector wires that were insufficiently crimped. With insufficiently crimped connector wires, a temperature sensor has the potential to falsely detect a high gearbox oil temperature, causing the transmission to abruptly shift to neutral. If this happens, the selector lever position indicator within the instrument panel will flash. In addition, the "Depress Brake Pedal" indicator light will be illuminated, alerting the driver to apply the brakes. The abrupt shift to neutral could lead to a crash without warning. Volkswagen will notify owners, inspect the DSG and, if necessary, replace an affected DSG temperature sensor free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.  09V-333

AUGUST 2008 -- Volkswagen is recalling 13,900 MY 1996-2003 Audi A8 vehicles equipped with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The locking cable may move out of position over time. With the locking cable out of position, the shifter can be moved out of the "PARK" position even if the ignition key is not in the ignition lock. This could allow the vehicle to roll, causing a crash without warning. Dealers will modify the automatic transmission locking cable by installing an adjusting piece that will secure the locking cable in place. The recall is expected to begin during September 2008.  08V397

APRIL 2008 -- Volkswagen is recalling 68,240 MY 2001-2004 Audi A6 Quattro vehicles equipped with 2.7L, 2.8L, or 3.0L engines and MY 2001-2005 Audi Allroad Quattro vehicles equipped with 2.7L or 4.2L engines. The aging of the plastic material in the fuel tank rollover valve combined with bending stress from the aluminum ventilation line to the rollover valve nipple may lead to cracking of the nipple. If this happens, a fuel leak may result. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could lead to a vehicle fire. Dealers will reinforce the nipple on the rollover valve to prevent leakage or repair the cracking at the nipple. The recall is expected to begin on or before May 30, 2008. Owners may contact Audi at 1-800-822-2834. This recall was the subject of a Preliminary Evaluation, PE08-008, conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation. 08V-157

JULY 2007 -- Volkswagen is recalling 1,021 MY 2006 A6 passenger vehicles. The automatic rear lid includes an electric motor and clutch that work in conjunction with two gas struts to open and close the rear lid, including a manual close function. In rare cases if one of the struts has a total loss of pressure, the resultant slow movement of the rear lid is interpreted by the software as an intended manual close and the motor clutch releases to close the rear lid immediately. This can result in an unintended rapid closing of the rear lid with a risk of personal injury. Dealers will install new software. The recall is expected to begin during September 2007. 07V334

August 2007 -- VW is recalling 34,358 MY 2003 Passat and Audi A4 and A6 vehicles equipped with 1.8L turbo, 2.8L V6, or 3.0L engines. A change in the electrical motor components in the fuel pump can lead to an inoperative fuel pump and, ultimately, stoppage of fuel supply to the engine causing it to stall. If fuel flow to the engine is interrupted, the vehicle could stall without warning and thus present a potential risk of crash. Dealers will install new fuel pumps. The recall is expected to begin during September 20007. This recall is a supplement to a previous campaign (please see 06V017). 07V-375

NEWS:   Audi A6 Headlight Switch Recalled Again

ConsumerAffairs.org -- June 12, 2006 -- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is recalling four types of the Audi A6 from the 1998 to the 2000 model years because a previous recall to fix the head light switch may have been improperly performed.

NHTSA is concerned that the improper installation could lead to an electrical short and fire under the dashboard on the driver's side of the car.

On some Audi A6, A6 Avant, S6 and S6 Avant cars, while attempting the remedial repair for recall 0413000 a plastic cover may not have been securely installed by the Audi technician.

If the cover is not properly installed to the driver's side support crossmember, the headlight switch wiring harness could contact the crossmember and cause an electrical short.

Audi has not provided a remedy or an owner notification schedule but owners may contact the manufacturer at 1-800-822-2834 or call NHTSA 1-888-327-4236.
