In 2015, Volkswagen admitted to inserting a “cheat device” into many of their cars in order to cheat emissions tests. Audi has been owned by the Volkswagen Group since 1966, and a number of Audi’s cars were fitted with this cheat device.
This has meant that over the past decade thousands of UK citizens could have been driving Audi vehicles that promised better performance and less pollution than was actually the case. Autocar tests have shown that the cars do have a worse fuel economy after the fix.
Audi is a very popular car in the UK, driven by families and businesses alike. If you are one of the Audi owners that might be affected, Claim Experts can help you claim compensation against Audi for the mis-representation of their vehicle emissions, helping you receive any damages if you have been left out of pocket.
Whilst the deadline to join the Group Action has passed this does not necessarily mean that you do not. have a claim providing that you still fall within the limitation period.
In September 2015, Volkswagen admitted that 1.2 million of its vehicles sold in the UK were fitted with a cheat software. The case became known as the VW emissions scandal or “dieselgate”.
However, included within these 1.2 million vehicles were cars within the VW Group brand – Audi, Seat, Skoda.
While no definitive emissions tests have yet taken place in the UK, researchers in the US found that when tested on the road, some cars emitted almost 40 times the permitted US levels of nitrogen oxides. The permitted levels do differ in the US and the UK. This is particularly ironic due to Audi’s tagline of “Vorsprung Durch Technik” – “Progress Through Technology”.
In addition to this, it has been reported that many of the senior figures in charge at the time of the use of the cheat device had originated from Audi.
Not only is cheating the NOx emission tests bad for the environment, it can potentially hurt the pockets of Audi customers. Clients who have been affected may have suffered damages because of it. If they have a valid claim they may be able to make a claim for compensation.
In 2017, the Volkswagen Group brand had to recall 4,997 A8 models in Europe fitted with V8 diesel engines to update their software after it was found they emitted too much NOx.
The VW NOx Emissions Group Litigation relates to vehicles manufactured by Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT or Skoda with a 1.2, 1.6 or 2.0 litre EA189 diesel engine, manufactured before 2016.
Other cars may be affected including, Porsche. Whilst no finding or decision has been made in respect of other vehicles such as Porsche, we are looking into them.
Audi initially sent out letters if your car was affected and they were recalling cars. However, you may not have received this letter or bought on the secondary market in between 2009-2015.
There is currently a link on the Audi website which can help you find out if you have been affected:

Claim Experts are asked this question regularly, and we believe there are five reasons:
The key reason is that a multinational company lied to its customers in order to make more profits. This meant that they sold an Audi that was not what was advertised, meaning your health and your pocket could have been affected.
The Volkswagen Group also lied about a dangerous pollutant – NOx. This is responsible for acid rain, global warming, smog and the deterioration of the ozone layer.
