Looks like it's more or less the whole industry

It looks like VAG (the parent VW group) will get the worst of the publicity over this but going by those results aren't the worst offenders.  I think we'll see the manufacturers throw VAG to the wolves while try to stay out of it as much as possible.

This whole saga is going to put a big dent in Germany's manufacturing sector, probably running into 10's of billions, and seriously damage their reputation & image.

 

VW has gone from Mr Safe, solid & reliable to Arthur Daley car sales in 1 fail swoop - bit like going from Cartier to Ratners :D .

 

Totally uncalled for ST, All my cars are pre owned classics, and nothing under hand like VW.

I suspect you're right. Hopefully it's going to make the industry be more honest. I suspect had tesla been nearly there on the model 3 yet their stock would have sky rocketed at this point.

a mate with a Skoda is talking of joining a class action. I had to point out that in the case of Skoda it would be a lack-of-class action.

I hope the link works. It should show a cartoon from ekathimerini (a Greek online newspaper) a few days ago. It's taken me a while to find it. I was beginning to think they'd taken it down.
