Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP Investigates Potential Claims against Volkswagen, Audi on Behalf of Owners and Lessees of Audi A6, A7, A8, Q5, and Q7 with 3.0 Liter Engines
In November 2016, government regulators discovered an emissions-cheating device installed in certain Audi gasoline vehicles with 3.0-liter engines and automatic transmissions. This device allowed Audi to conceal the actual level of greenhouse CO2 emissions that its cars produce.
This newly uncovered emissions-cheating device is separate and different from the illegal software in Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche diesel vehicles discovered by regulators in 2015.
The new defeat device is installed in cars equipped with gasoline engines and changes how the transmission operates when testing is detected to lower CO2 emissions, but otherwise allows excessive CO2 emissions in normal on-road driving.
Below is a list of the affected vehicles that are the subject of our investigation:
• Audi A6, A7, A8, Q5 and likely Q7
Kessler Topaz is investigating potential class action claims on behalf of owners or Lessees of the affected Audi vehicles.
