At Keller Postman UK, our expert lawyers keep you up to date and informed with the latest news on the emissions scandal.
To progress your dieselgate emissions claim, we need you to provide us with evidence and information about your ownership of the vehicle.
The latest vehicles accused of being fitted with defeat devices are Mercedes model lines that use the OM642 engine with the Bluetec SCR system, for example, the E-Class, GLC, GL and G-Class.
As the Dieselgate scandal continues, car manufacturer Opel, which is known branded as Vauxhall in the UK, has been fined €64.8 million. The fine, imposed by the Frankfurt public prosecutor’s office, was for selling diesel cars with emissions higher than reported to German transport regulators.
While there are still some challenges to overcome before electric vehicles replace traditional cars on our roads, everything could be about to change. At Keller Lenkner UK, we would argue that holding manufacturers to account for their environmental failings has been crucial to this evolution.
In a win for consumer rights, the European Commission and the EU Consumer Protection Authority (CPC) have said that Volkswagen should compensate all purchasers of affected diesel vehicles across all EU member states. There are thought to be 8.5 million vehicles fitted with emission cheating devices across the bloc.
A recent opinion by an Advocate General of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) makes it increasingly likely that VW will lose its latest case over the use of emissions defeat devices. This case looked at the alleged abuse of ‘thermal windows’.
Our specialist teams handle a wide range of consumer and employee claim types.
