VW Emissions...

So we all know the story. VW admits manipulating their diesel cars for emissions.

Also, Their 2L engines have major problems and lawsuits pending.

As we all know, the Bentley GT and GTC suffer from hose problem / false air that costs north of $3500+ to fix...

Porsche engines that....

At what point does one decide to never buy a VW product (VW, Bentley, Bugatti, Porsche, etc).

It wouldn't be so bad if Bentley held their hands up and helped out financially with the air hose problem. Maybe too much money to be made by them.
It doesn't encourage much brand loyalty does it!

Am simply hearing too many people with problems concerning VW Group products. This new emissions problem is so perplexing that many consumers might simply write off all of the VW Group's products. Sadly, when this type of emissions situation does not come a surprise to people such as myself, one then might need to question why anyone would support such a brand.

On the flip side VW is just trying to slide past some government regulation and with the rate of government screwing the people some may not see it as so bad to stiff the Fed. If your really a green type of dude then you have not business driving a Bentley. I hear so mush of global warming I am getting sick of it. I do believe it is happening just doubtful of the assigned scapegoats. I mean hell how many cars or other man made pollutants were present to cause the ice age to end?

Now the design flaw that costs owners excessively is another matter entirely.

I have a problem understanding VAG behaviour.

the diesel market is huge in continental Europe but rather small in the US, why, in hell, they decided to take such a huge risk for selling a few thousand cars?

this scandal is damaging the whole ''made in germany'' products image and it goes far beyond the VAG group.

I do believe that the can ''swallow'' the 18 billions fine they might be facing but what will happen then?
how many class actions they will face? how many car will be recalled, what will be the loss of turn over....what if the same problem is discovered in other countries in the world?
the survival of the whole company might be at risk.

I cannot understand how a company selling 8 mill+ cars in the world having a 200 billions yearly turn over and employing more than 600 thousand people can organize such a stunt without someone leaking it from inside...

Don't worry about them they are to big to fail, just like the banking industry and Tom Brady. The governor of TN has already issued some soft talk that sounds like you boys be good now you are bringing in our state to mush money to get caught like that.

To think, Bentley have mentioned bringing out a diesel Bentayga.
Maybe that will be on hold for now!
