Volkswagen Group has received approval from U.S. regulators, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for the following emissions modifications (AEM):

  • A two-phase AEM for model year 2015 Volkswagen and Audi 2.0L TDI vehicles with Generation Three engines. These vehicles require a first part software and second part hardware update.
  • A software update for automatic transmission model year 2012-2014 Volkswagen Passat 2.0L TDI vehicles with Generation Two engines.
