It's the testers who have been hoodwinked!
They could not be bothered to clamp an instrument onto the tail pipe.
It doan matter what the software says, it's what comes out of the pipes at the back that counts.

Switzerland has banned the sale of VW cars.
God they must hate the Germans!

It seems the engine management software was smart enough to detect when the car was being tested as distinct from being used in normal driving.
Thus the software switched the engine management into "lean" run mode.
That is my understanding (in a nutshell) of what the VW engineers have done.
Maybe I am wrong.

That's not true - you can call yourself anything you like - however inaccurately!

 

I haven't owned an Alfa - would a Ferrari be OK, or a Bugatti, or a 1928 Plymouth?

Haven't read the start but I'll comment anyway

 

 

From what I understand America wanted to sue VW?   Are any of the people that own a VW going to see that money?

and what was the question ?

 

what do Alfa/Fiat have to do with VWs and AUDIs emission cheating devices anyway?

 

go Aloy, stick up for the underdog VAG as they emit billions of tons of illegal pollution into the atmosphere, charging prices for cars based on performance figures only obtainable by switching off their emissions controls

 

was that your point ? "what about the others"

 

:rundog:

This is your translation:

 

'go Aloy, stick up for the underdog VAG as they emit billions of tons of illegal pollution into the atmosphere, charging prices for cars based on performance figures only obtainable by switching off their emissions controls'

 

 

How you made that leap of 'logic'  only you can tell., you little lover of all things Italian you, don't you understand when your leg is being pulled? :ras:

Hi Aloy . . .

You live in Queensland, so what does Fiat stand for up there North of the border?
Is it Fix it Again Tony?
Or, Fukced It again Tony?
