DIESELGATE SCANDAL

Vauxhall DIESEL FRAUD CLAIM

Vauxhall allegedly fitted illegal emission defeat (or cheat) devices in hundreds of thousands of their diesel vehicles in the UK. 

Defeat devices are designed to reduce emissions in order to falsely pass regulatory approval tests. When fitted with a defeat device, the vehicle understands when it is under ‘test conditions’ and emissions are reduced so to pass these tests.  

However, these ‘test conditions’ do not reflect how the vehicle actually performs when driven in the real world. Outside of test conditions, the affected vehicles release much higher emissions and their overall performance is much lower. As such, without the operation of a defeat device, the vehicles would not pass the necessary regulatory tests. 

PGMBM believes that Vauxhall deliberately misled its customers as to the real levels of emissions their vehicles produce and started the Vauxhall Diesel Fraud Claim to help those affected claim compensation. 

Vauxhall’s sister brand, Opel, has previously been under scrutiny by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority – Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA). The KBA published a mandatory recall on 23 January 2020 for the Opel models Zafira 1.6 and 2.0 litre CDTi, Insignia 2.0 CDTi and Cascada 2.0 CDTi built between 2012 and 2016. The reason for the recall is that the vehicles are believed to contain an impermissible defeat device. 

As a result of these vehicles being on the road, adults and children may have suffered respiratory problems from breathing in the high volumes of toxicants found in polluted air. 

If you owned or leased a Vauxhall diesel vehicle first registered between 2009 and 2019, you may be able to join the Vauxhall Diesel Fraud Claim. 

Customers who owned or leased more than one affected vehicle are entitled to make claims for each of their vehicles. 

In similar cases around the world, other manufacturers have already paid billions in damages to customers as part of various settlement agreements.
