    Why must every HEADLINE carry the onus of total disaster? GLOBAL RECESSION! Why can’t you simply report without resorting to constant cataclysms? It’s why I ignore so much of the “news”.

    Volkswagen reacted to ever increasing pollution standards. The US government and other governments kept adding more and more stringent requirements that were unobtainable. Much like the “war on coal”, the US government demanded clean air standards, for which science had no answer, as the remedies had not been invented yet.

    Big frickin deal! American Government along with all the others, fudge numbers all day long, after far as the sunrise to sunset. The corruption of Government numbers effects people’s lives everyday. Please!

    Lets Abolish the EPA, which does more harm then good, and then go out and enjoy our VW TDI cars because they are wonderful and do more good then harm! I love my TDI Jetta Sportswagen even if it’s Farvfruemleguel. 😉

    Lets not try and shift the blame on someone, put it where it belongs, put it on stupid politicians who are too greedy for power and are not smart enough to spend wisely. Lastly put it on the citizens who are too stupid to replace said politicians.

    Perhaps the VW software engineers should develop software for other industries like the electric utilities, manufacturing, and transportation industries. Using that software, these industries could hide their carbon footprint and eliminate the threat of global warming. After all, what we do not know will not hurt us.

    Shame on Martin Winterkorn and all those that have known about the cover up. They all should be criminally prosecuted. Honestly, there is no excuse. Germany will have great consequences, not only about trust in their products, also revenue wise. And do not let this be repeated. This reminds us about years ago that case of exporting bad milk to Africa, was it?.

    Glad I bought the Subaru Forester in 2014 when trying to decide between Jetta Wagon and Forester.

    I am heartsick for VW. I quite frankly despise the United States federal government which, as other posters have noted, has imposed increasingly difficult emission standards – not with the objective of “cleaning” the air, but since the fabulous sixties with getting us out of our big, powerful, smooth, flashy American cars.

    This is like Patton slapping the soldier during WWII. The TDI is still a great, efficient, fun engine, and I support VW and call on the clean air crowd to develop the science before they set the limit when it comes to emissions. Next we will require reduced bovine emissions.
