  • Unapproved Emission Software Found by U.S in VW Audi cars

U.S. finds unapproved emission software in VW's 3.0 diesel engine cars.

Volkswagen is in a lot of trouble due to the recent emission scandal that marked the deterioration of repute of this famous company. The company was charged with a fraud scandal in which they were convicted of fraud in respect to diesel emission in their cars.

VW has been trying all that they can to bring back their lost repute on track. However it looks like the company hasn’t learnt a lesson from the first case in the right manner.

U.S authorities just unveiled another major issue with the Audi cars which is a sub group of VW. It was found that the 3.0 diesel engine cars were laced with diesel emission software that is unapproved by authorities. This fact means that these cars will continue to cheat on the diesel emission as long as the software will work in them.

According to U.S authorities there are two unapproved softwares that are currently being used in the cars, these include VW’s VOWG_p.DE and Audi’s NSUG.DE. The authorities did not reveal about the source of reports however they will be sharing this news officially with media.

These software are being used in direct injection engines which are being used in Audi Q7, Porsche’s Cayenne and VW’s Touareg. The software automatically shuts down emission control system after the car is being driven for almost 22 minutes.

The official methods to measure the emission lasts only 20 minutes. This can give a false emission number to the software at the end, according to Reuters.

VW was convicted of cheating in the U.S diesel emission scandal and they had to pay as much as $15.3 billion in order to buy back the cars and to replace the faulty material along with compensating for damage. This new accusation can be really drastic for the company.
