Volkswagen has been told a March 24 dead line to divulge whether it has discovered a repair for the 600,000 diesel cars in the United States associated with the dieselgate scandal.
“6 months is long enough” to figure out if this is a fixable issue, U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco informed the news outlet. “This is a continuous problem.”
Back in September, the German automaker acknowledged that “cheat gadgets” had actually been crafted into its automobiles to deceive emissions tests. Impacted automobiles were discovered to give off approximately 40 times more than the allowed levels of nitrogen oxides.
Last month, the United States Justice Department took legal action against Volkswagen approximately $46 billion for the offense. The Volkswagen Group, consisting of Audi and Porsche, are presently prohibited from offering diesel cars in the United States.
The federal government has currently turned down the automaker’s preliminary strategy to repair the emissions concern in 2.0-liter TDI engines in almost half a million cars. A strategy to take care of designs with the 3.0-liter TDI V-6 was sent previously this month.
