In 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was alerted that Volkswagen and Audi were installing defeat devices that enabled its turbodiesel (TDI) vehicles to cheat emissions tests. Marketed as “clean diesel” cars, the companies charged consumers thousands of dollars more for TDI models than the same models with gas-powered engines.
After the EPA confirmed that certain TDI models violated clean air laws, Volkswagen officials admitted their wrongdoing and stated their intention to fix affected TDI vehicles at no cost to owners. But to meet emissions standards, many believe the company’s fix will have negative effects on vehicle performance and resale values.

VW and Audi TDI Vehicles With Defeat Devices
Volkswagen and Audi have confirmed that eight diesel vehicle models have emissions defeat devices:
- Audi A3 (2010-2015)
- VW Beetle (2012-2015)
- VW Beetle Convertible (2012-2015)
- VW Golf (2010-2015)
- VW Golf Sportwagen (2015)
- VW Jetta (2009-2015)
- VW Jetta Sportwagen (2009-2014)
- VW Passat (2012-2015)
Owners and Dealerships Affected By VW Emissions Scandal
Volkswagen’s fraudulent actions mean that recalled TDI cars are now unable to pass emissions tests across the United States. And with uncertainty surrounding the company’s solution to the problem, owners and dealers may now find it difficult to sell their cars without facing a serious economic loss.
