The Volkswagen Diesel Customer Forum (Emissions Scandal) group breaks 7000 members

The Volkswagen Diesel Customer-Forum Emissions Scandal 7000 members

Let’s face it, the VW are no longer able to contain the lies and deceit that has plagued the car maker since “dieselgate” hit the headlines.

It’s not just some petty corporate figure fiddling either, the issue has left some owners thousands of pounds out of pocket and without their cars for weeks on end whilst the VW Group denies any responsibility.

The Volkswagen Diesel Customer Forum (Emissions Scandal) has set to change this.  They have worked tirelessly highlighting these issues to the public and press all whilst lobbying government into taking action against VW in order to seek justice for owners affected by the emissions recall.

With over 7000 members under it’s belt, its clear that this issue just won’t go away. On a daily basis owners are reporting EGR failures, DPF blockages, fueling failures and all for what? We’re no clearer about the true effects of the emissions update, the KBA continues shrug its shoulders over the matter and our pathetic government are too busy taking corporate backhanders from the disgraced car maker and its team of slimey lobbyists. In fact, figures from show that in 2016 Volkswagen spent a whopping 2.66 million euros lobbying in the EU (source). 

This is all while the Volkswagen Group continues its profitable growth. Figures from their 2017 interim report (here) report their sales revenue has grown  year-on-year to EUR 170.9 billion with it’s operating profit before special items climbs to EUR 13.2 billion. Thats not pocket change. They are litterally earning money off the back of the owners that once trusted them. Its a f**king disgrace.

We wholeheartedly applaud the admin team and the 7000+ members of  the Volkswagen Diesel Customer Forum (Emissions Scandal) group. Their efforts haven’t gone unnoticed despite what you might read in the biased press. Keep up the good fight, we’re happy to do what we can in aid of your cause and help bring justice to the tens of thousands of owners left out of pocket.

    I have just purchased a 2012 gtd golf with 80,000 miles the previous owner had the emission recall done should I be worried

    My car (Vw golf TDI 1.6, EA189) for the past 4 journeys has had the engine management lamp on and gone into limp mode and Iv just done a diagnostics and found it to be the EGR valve!!! I’m livid this is as a result of this scandal and they’re getting a phone call in 28 minutes as soon as it’s open!

    I have a diesel Seat Leon (2012 plate) bought in 2016 that has had the emission fix back in 2017, didn’t want to take the car for the fix, but was told that it could cause permanent damage if not (how ironic) car drove like a dream never had any issues but a couple of weeks ago flashing coil light started, engine light now on, stop/start no longer working and fan coming on after every journey. Due back at dealership tomorrow for an official diagnosis, however my brother in law is a mechanic and already know it’s an EGR fault. I’m ready and full of advice and info, print outs the lot in preparation for any denials. Totally unacceptable that they can do this to our cars and not have to answer to it.
