Has spent more than a year that broke out the scandal of emissions of the Volkswagen Group known as “Dieselgate”. As you know, the German company is facing multiple sanctions and compensation in the millions, in addition to having to buy back thousands of vehicles in the united States. The 2.0 TDI started to be called to review at the beginning of the year to update and comply with the regulations, while that from now on, the versions calls to review will be those that use the 1.6 TDI in the range EA189.
The German KBA (Federal Authority to Transport Motor) has approved official amendments to the giant Volkswagen Group, has presented to this propellant meets conveniently with the regulations on anti-pollution. In total, engine 1.6 TDI defective has been installed in no less than 2.6 million vehicle in Europe of the brands Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, and Seat.
As already said several months ago, modifications that the multinational company had to carry out on this engine would be somewhat more complex engine 2.0 TDI of the same family EA189. In the case of the 1.6 TDI affected, you must perform an update of your software, but also some small modifications in the area of the flowmeter. Apparently, the operation do not take more than half an hour of work for the mechanics and, of course, the brand bears all costs of the repair. With this brief operation, the 1.6 TDI in the range EA189 already shall comply fully with the european legislation and with the regulations of pollutant emissions.
Of the 11 million vehicles affected worldwide, 8.5 million units were sold in the european market. On the other hand, the modifications to the engine 1.2, which had also deceived with their polluting emissions by falsifying its operation when detecting the cycle testing, type approval, are in the development phase, so that the multinational should not take too much time to call to fix the cars affected with this mechanic.
