Volkswagen’s recall to fix the 3.0 liter Diesel cars was rejected by California.

This week, the Chief Air Regulator of California rejected the proposal of Volkswagen AG in order to fix 16,000 3.0 liter diesel engine cars. These 16,000 cars included VWs, Audis and Porsches in the state. These cars are also equipped with devices that can cheat emission tests like that of other VWs.

According to Reuters, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) states that the plan formulated by VW in order to fix the emission problem in these cars was not really adequate thus not really reliable to fix all these cars too.

CARB stated in the official letter that submissions made by company were incomplete and the legal requirements needed to be fulfilled for this fixture were also not made properly. This is the reason VW will not be given this contract.

Along with that it was said that VW proposed a single fix for all these cars. However the cars belong to three different companies which are Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche so we are not really sure if a single fix will work for all of them.

The best thing to do so is to provide alternative fixed for all models. So that if one plan doesn’t work, one can go for the other one. If the research indicated that no fix is possible for these vehicles then they might be bought back by the companies. 

The vehicles that needed the fix include Volkswagen Touareg, Audi A8 and Porsche Cayenne. The Environmental Protection Agency spokesperson also stated in an official comment that VW did not presented a fruitful fix for the problem due to which its proposal to fix the 3.0 liter diesel vehicles was rejected. 

It looks like some other company will be appointed to manage the problem.
