Update on Proposed U.S. Settlements for 2.0L TDI Vehicles
On June 28, Volkswagen reached proposed settlements regarding 2.0L TDI vehicles in the United States, including a proposed class settlement with U.S. customers. The proposed settlements are subject to the approval of a U.S. federal court.
In Canada, parties to proposed class proceedings are in discussions about potential settlements and remedies for affected TDI vehicles nationally. By order of the Ontario Superior Court, the parties are required to keep the specifics of these settlement discussions confidential. The parties are aiming to provide a settlement progress update to Canadian courts on or before July 29, 2016. Under the Canadian legal system, once the parties to a class action proceeding reach a settlement, affected customers would be informed and the Court would then schedule a hearing to approve the settlement.

Software installed on some of our vehicles permitted deviations in nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx) performance depending on whether the vehicle was running during a regulatory compliance-related test cycle or running outside the test cycle during normal road use. This is the subject of the current investigations.
Volkswagen 2.0L TDI vehicles manufactured between 2009-2015 and 3.0L V6 TDI vehicles manufactured between 2009-2016 are affected by the emissions issues. More information.
Safety & Environment
As the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Environment Canada have both verified, the issues relate to Emissions only. The safety of the vehicles is not affected.
Volkswagen continues to work with the EPA to develop approved vehicle repairs as quickly as possible. Upon approval, repairs would be offered to Volkswagen customers in Canada in full co-operation with Environment Canada.
