The recent extraordinary admission by Volkswagen that they had created and installed software, the specific aim of which was to cheat emissions tests will result in a substantial number of legal actions.
If you have any of the following VW cars manufactured between 2009 and 2015 – Jetta, Beetle or Golf, or if you have an Audi A3 or if you have a 2014 or 2015 VW Passat then it appears to me that you have a very strong case to claim breach of contract and damages for depreciation.
At the moment these actions appear to be limited to Volkswagen but there is considerable concern that other motor manufacturers were involved in the same deception.
Customers who thought they were buying an environmentally friendly vehicle with a good resale value will have a strong case to seek compensation for misrepresentation and breach of contract.
