Volkswagen Emissions Scandal

For more up-to-date information please see our dedicated Volkswagen Claims page.

What’s your VW worth now?

1.5 million cars in the UK potentially affected Including: Audi, Passat, Skoda, Seat!

Register your claim NOW!

6.5 Million set aside by motor industry to cover cost of fines, recalls, compensation claims and legal costs.

If you purchased the vehicle, from 2008 onwards, then you may be entitled to a full refund under the Miss-selling rules because of its alleged low emissions as well as a possible claim for loss in market value of the vehicle, extra fuel charges, and potential car tax implications!

Nik Ellis MD of Laird Assessors, National Engineers and Automotive Experts, has said “A vehicle bought for its green credentials is suddenly not the environmentally responsible care we once thought. There are also tax implications; lower emission vehicle, meaning many VW’s could see significant hike in their tax band…should the emissions scandal spread to the UK’s Volkswagen…then we are likely to see a diminution of the value of the affected models” and this would be at the very least.

It has been reported in the press that “…drivers are paying an average of £350 more a year than they would if the car had the declared fuel efficiency. The advertised number of miles to the gallon is not a true reflection nor is their actual performance on the road. In other developments:

  • Switzerland has banned the sale of affected vehicles made by VW – and calls have followed for Britain to follow suit;
  • Worried British car buyers are cancelling orders – while industry experts say consumers can now ‘name their price’ for VW cars;

Those affected are thought to be:

  • Eco and Blue motion vehicles built post 2008
