VW Stop-Sale List Grows | DrivingSales News

Volkswagen Adds More Vehicles To Stop-Sale List

November 5, 2015 0 Comments

We have another update for you in the ongoing Volkswagen Diesel Emissions crisis. This time it’s news that VW is stopping retail sales of more vehicles. Volkswagen asked dealers on November 4 to stop selling select diesel vehicles, which have been found to have the same “defeat device” which prompted the original emissions crisis. The following vehicles are subject to a new stop-sale order:

2014-2016 Porsche Cayenne Diesel

2014-2016 Audi A6 3.0 TDI

2014-2016 Audi A7 3.0 TDI

2014-2016 Audi A8 L 3.0 TDI

2014-2016 Audi Q5 3.0 TDI

2013-2015 Audi Q7 3.0 TDI

2013-2016 Volkswagen Touareg TDI

As reported by USA Today, Audi spokesman Brad Stertz said Wednesday Audi is “trying to work with EPA and CARB to show our emission results and understand how they came to their conclusion.” In light of the finding by the EPA, which indicated more vehicles could have emissions problems Porsche also released a statement. On the Porsche website, the automaker explained, “Porsche Cars North America, Inc. today decided, in view of the unexpected U.S. EPA notice received yesterday, to voluntarily discontinue sales of model year 2014 through 2016 Porsche Cayenne Diesel vehicles until further notice. We are working intensively to resolve this matter as soon as possible. Customers may continue to operate their vehicles normally.”

The latest stop-sale finding only adds to pressure for Volkswagen as the automaker is also dealing with numerous high-dollar class action lawsuits and the overhanging sword from the EPA which could incur fine worth tens of billions of dollars in the near future.

What is it going to take for Volkswagen to both manage this diesel emissions crisis and come out of it a better company? Do you think the impact of this diesel emissions crisis is over or understated? Finally, do you think that VW will steer out of this emissions software crisis and retake their place as the top automaker in the world?
