Volkswagen has been in the news over the past few months for the worst possible reasons. A new class-action lawsuit is forming against Volkswagen over charges the automaker has been rigging vehicles to hide the levels of emissions they produce.
Many consumers purchased Volkswagen cars that were advertised as “clean diesel,” only to find out some VW models produced unlawful carbon emissions up to 40 times the pollution allowed.
While Volkswagen admitted its wrongdoing and set aside $7.3 billion to cover fines from this scandal, this lawsuit is far from being over. VW recalls are likely to continue, though there are no immediate actions required by the owners of VW models. This is where the attorneys at Viles & Beckman, P.A. step in.

- Volkswagen Beetle: 2009-2015 model years
