I am touched by the case of Volkswagen TDI, what should I do? ¿I can ask for compensation? Resolve your questions in 8 questions and answers


The Volkswagen case is on everyone’s lips. The volume of affected and the property in question has been affected (the purchase of a car is one of the largest expenditures undertaken by Spanish families), it has made this issue generated much controversy and concern. You are affected by the case of TDI Volkswagen and it is reasonable to think what will happen from now on. My advice is to avoid smoke vendors propose magic solutions, substantial compensation or return the car. It is soon to venture a forecast and as such consequences. My advice is to maintain the peace. Volkswagen is committed to solve any problems and restore the confidence of its customers. His reputation, and future are at stake. In any case, consider the possible scenarios, what we must do if our car has been affected by the scandal, and to clarify some doubts about what’s true and what hypotheses are being considered in 8 questions and answers about fraud the TDI Volkswagen .

Before you start worrying is important to know if your model is affected. Remember that Volkswagen announced a few days that had been affected a total of ten engines, of the family makes EA189 and displacements 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI present in 33 models of SEAT , Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda. The list of affected Dieselgate Volkswagen View. The engines that already comply with the Euro VI emissions regulations would not be among those affected. In any case, when in doubt, your trusted dealer or workshop should confirm you if your engine belongs to the family EA189 . In the coming days Volkswagen is committed to providing more details on affected engines in each market, and the action to be carried out from now.

The 8 fatal scenarios that cause the “TDI-Gate” Volkswagen

Remember the scandal emerged in the United States. Volkswagen acknowledged falsified NOx emissions in the approval tests of the US market – which are not the same as those in Europe. The consequences in our continent, therefore, need not be the same. Everything will depend on the research that is already making its own brand and independent agencies and governments. Germany has already commissioned a team of researchers investigating Volkswagen engines, and is taking over allegations that some citizens have already brought against the brand.

Following the possible consequences in Europe the following scenarios:

That does not happen absolutely nothing . Volkswagen would not have committed any irregularity in Europe (such as those committed in the United States) and therefore would not have to act to correct their engines, or compensate their customers. For information throwing the German mark, and the explanations given so far is a possible scenario, but not the only or the most likely.

emissions of TDI Volkswagen in Europe have been manipulated and have to act accordingly . If motors TDI marketed in our continent have not met European standards, or have falsified data to gain advantages, Volkswagen will have to “legalize” the TDI affected, ie, fix their software to comply with these regulations. From there other possible scenarios, including sanctions, request compensation, and so forth would be opened.

3. If my car is affected, and their emissions have breached European regulations, ¿I can continue to use it?

At the moment, there is nothing to stop you. The non-compliance is not technically makes your car is not roadworthy or unsafe result. Volkswagen has especially emphasized this point. There is a recall for a security issue.

How they can deceive the approved manufacturers consumption? The Volkswagen case in the United States and Defeat Device

Since Volkswagen Spain and we have reported to be responsible for all costs lead to lead this scandal. That is, if a recall is necessary, its network of workshops would be responsible for realizing it. The recall would be reprogramming software for logical issues that could involve collateral damage, such as loss of benefits. While it is permissible to think so, and the arguments used to justify it can also enjoy a solid base, very conscious of this is – for now – a hypothesis, nothing more. It is important to stress this point because in recent days we are hearing a mixture of official information, contrasted information and assumptions which are not necessarily fulfilled.

The (cruel, but relieved) simile we could use to explain this recall work is the athlete who has resorted to doping to enhance their brands. By the time the athlete is identified, and returns to compete with rivals on equal terms, it stands to reason that their brands will worsen. If Volkswagen had to reduce NOx emissions from their engines TDI – via software – to correct the problem, it stands to reason that by the way we can lose benefits or even aumentasen consumption

.

In any case, again, this scenario does not necessarily fulfilled. And even if met, the consequences need not necessarily be dramatic for customers. And when I say dramatic I mean a drastic reduction in performance or appearance of very high consumption. Let us flee from the doomsday messages.

If the motors TDI Volkswagen affected emissions standards have failed or are simply emitting more greenhouse gases (especially NOx) from which approval should be issued by this recall work would be mandatory. Consider that these engines would not circulate under current regulations. Compliance with the recall could be controlled relatively easily in technical inspections of vehicles, ITV .

6. Should I seek compensation?

As we are still in the realm of hypothesis, it is too early to think about compensation, but associations like FACUA have already been put to work to meet those possibly affected. If benefits or consumption of your car are affected after the solution offered by Volkswagen, after the recall, it’s time to talk compensation. But – we repeat – such compensation only arrive in this hypothetical scenario

.

The reason why in this scenario Volkswagen should pay compensation is none other than the fact that our car has stopped – necessarily -. To comply with the technical characteristics which bid us when it was acquired

volkswagen-tdi-afectados-1 7. Should I join?

The slogan of “unity is strength” is true when we talk about consumer fraud, especially if it’s as massive as the Volkswagen case. I think it is still early to join proposals as launched by FACUA , which has already announced the creation of a national platform affected by fraud Volkswagen. And I say it’s early, because we still do not even know if it will lead to possible compensation. Until the issue is not clear enough to take legal action would not recommend affiliation to any association (especially if it involves the payment of fees).

For now my advice to potentially affected would be to remain cautious. Do not be nervous, or worry excessively, Volkswagen has already said he will unravel what has happened – in Europe, which is what matters to us in this continent – and act accordingly to protect the rights of their clients. And before the disrepute that lies ahead, be very clear that the account that brings you to the German mark and act.

seat-martorell-1 8. What compensation are considering?

The possible compensation, moving forward all the comments to this line, it would be the payment of a specific amount as compensation for the damage caused. Associations like FACUA are already announcing other potential claims, which are actually possible, but unlikely, at least with the data we have so far as the reimbursement of the vehicle (according to a criterion of proportionality with their age) or even replace them.

Please, let us be cautious and sensible. With the data we have so far is hard to imagine that compensation can reach the back of the vehicle. Do not be fooled by such messages because such a scenario is unlikely.
