Volkswagen Reveals EU-Only Fix For Cheating Engines
Volkswagen says a software update and a new filter are all that's needed to bring its cars in line with EU emissions regulations.By Matt Picht | November 25, 2015
After cheating on emissions tests, Volkswagen is trying to make things right with its European customers. Lucky for its bottom line, that process might not be as expensive as Volkswagen thought.
"This component stabilizes the airflow and allows a more precise measurement of the incoming fresh airflow," a company executive said.
According to a new video, Volkswagen plans to bring its errant engines back in line with a software upgrade and a new filter. The fix covers almost all of the 8.5 million European vehicles expected to be recalled, and the company says it should take between 30 minutes to an hour per vehicle.
