What is the Audi diesel emissions scandal?

The Dieselgate scandal started back in 2015, which is when some auto manufacturers began programming their vehicles to cheat emission tests through turbocharged direct injection (TDI).

To put it simply, the TDI’s emission controls worked only during testing, and they stopped when people used their vehicles on a regular day.

TDIs produce notable and unlawful amounts of nitrogen oxides, as these gasses are harmful not only to health but also to the environment.

As such, car manufacturers like Audi have faced claims for losses they’ve caused with their misleading practices. As such, they became liable to pay compensation to affected customers through diesel emission claims.

Is My Audi Eligible for a Diesel Claim?

Considering that the Volkswagen Auto Group owns Audi, you’re likely to be eligible for a diesel claim. The company is the one that was first held liable for the scandal. So, if you purchased a vehicle produced by the said company between 2008 and 2015, you can get compensation.

Most of the car models affected were the Audi A4 to A7, Q5, SQ5, and Q7, which the company recalled. It didn’t matter whether the vehicle was new or second-hand because people still managed to claim their compensation.

However, you should make your compensation claim as soon as possible because the deadline to join the Volkswagen group action claim has already ended. It’s because, in May 2022, the company decided to settle its case out of court.

Volkswagen Group decided to pay £193 million to its claimants in England and Wales. Despite the situation, there are still law firms that are looking for claimants regardless of their vehicle’s brand. 

Additionally, Volkswagen group paid Audi owners in the United States a whopping $9.8 billion in settlements which is roughly £8 billion.

Audi Diesel Claims FAQs

What our customers ask us

Why Is It Necessary to Make an Audi Diesel Emission Claim?

The following are the benefits you can gain if you’re going to make an Audi diesel emission claim:

Monetary Compensation
When the Dieselgate scandal blew up, many Audi owners immediately decided to get their vehicles fixed. Of course, removing defeat devices comes at a cost. As such, receiving monetary compensation will act as your reimbursement for all the money you’ve spent.

Moreover, there’s a possibility that you’ve spent money paying for a fine if your vehicle was apprehended because of carrying a defeat device. Even though you’re not liable for the defeat device installed in your vehicle, you’re still the one who’ll face the consequences. So, receiving monetary compensation from your car manufacturer is definitely a huge help.

Reduces Risk of Health Diseases
Defeat devices or cheat software make Audi vehicles produce a large amountsof nitrogen oxide. This gas is highly toxic to humans when ingested because it increases the risk of an individual’s vulnerability to various respiratory illnesses.

Exposure to 150 ppm of nitrogen oxide within a few minutes can already cause acute health effects. This includes eye, lung, and throat irritation.

Symptoms include stinging of the said body parts, coughing, and even difficulty in breathing. There are also instances where it triggers asthma. In addition, exposure for more than 30 minutes can result in severe and fatal illnesses, like asphyxia and pulmonary edema.

There are cases wherein nitrogen oxide causes chronic health effects, one of which is asthma. It’s a condition that makes your lungs sensitive to irritants, such as smoke and chemicals. It constricts your airways, leading to difficulty breathing and chest tightness.

Lastly, nitrogen oxide puts an individual at risk of developing obliterative bronchiolitis. It’s a rare disease that makes your bronchioles scarred. So, you become short of breath, which can worsen over time.

Safer and Cleaner Environment
Nitrogen oxide is harmful to our environment as well. Considering that it’s an air pollutant, it puts our ecosystem at risk when it gets mixed with water, oxygen, and other chemicals present in the atmosphere.

One effect that we often experience is acid rain. It’s the outcome when sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide react with oxygen and water. Sulphuric and nitric acids form and fall to the ground when it rains. It seeps into the ground, dissolving nutrients essential to plants.

Additionally, nitrogen oxide mixes with aerosols in the atmosphere, resulting in smog. Of course, it affects our visibility because it creates a reddish-brown haze that reduces our vision. On top of that, it can be detrimental because we can ingest these pollutants.

Accountability
When you first bought your Audi, the car manufacturer assured you that there wouldn’t be any problems that would arise. However, the Dieselgate scandal says otherwise.

So, filing a diesel claim will make them accountable for their deception. They didn’t only breach your trust, but they also put your health and the environment in danger.

Moreover, holding the car manufacturer accountable will make their investors and shareholders concerned. Considering that many practice ethical investing, the company will be mindful of its actions in the future.

We can put you in touch with a reliable law firm who will represent you with your Audi diesel emissions claim This will be on a “no win, no fee” basis, meaning you won’t have to pay anything upfront. Still, you should expect that a portion of your compensation, if successful, will go to pay the legal costs if your claim is successful.

An Audi diesel claim is a real possibility for car owners affected by the Dieselgate scandal. Though several years have already passed since it occurred, it’s crucial for you to file a claim if you are one of thousands of motorists affected. 

This is so that your car manufacturer is held responsible for their recklessness. On top of that, it’s an action to make them more aware of their ethical responsibilities as a company.

To do so, fill out our form and your details will be forwarded to one of the UK’s top solicitors.
