Members of the Volkswagen Diesel Customer Forum Facebook group are set to descend on the VW head quarters on June 21st in protest of the VW Group EA189 emissions recall.
The group which boasts over 2,500 members plans to picket the VW head office to help raise awareness of the issues that owners have faced in the wake of the emissions “fix”.
The group, founded by Gareth Pritchard was setup to assist fellow VAG VW Group car owners following mechanical failure following the EA189 engine emissions fix. Backed up by a team of 8 admin the group has been busy lobbying government and assisting affected owners.
The peaceful protest, planned for June 21st is the first of many events the group has arranged to raise awareness of the issues resulting with both the UK Group themselves and the media. A number of media outlets including the BBC have shown interest in attending.
In a statement to Hypermiler.co.uk a member of the admin team said, “Our protest is aimed at raising the media profile of the issues faced by VW group car owners who have been suffering at the hands of the so called fix. We will be representing over 2,500 group members all of who are experiencing breakdowns and degradation of their cars performance. As VW will not substantiate the claims they make in their statements with any evidence, it is hoped that taken the problem to their doorstep will make VW admit the problems they are causing.”
