VW Emissions

Jenkins v. Volkswagen et al

Nova Scotia Supreme Court File: Hfx No. 445800 

Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaftis a manufacturer of many makes and models of automobiles. With their main headquarters located in Wolfsburg, Germany, VW is one of the leading manufacturers of vehicles.

Recently, it has been determined that Volkswagen used sophisticated illegal software in certain vehicle models which turns fuel emissions controls on only during official regulatory or other testing. At all other times, the emissions controls are suppressed. The result is that the cars meet emissions standards in laboratories or under testing conditions, but during normal operation they emit nitrous oxide and other pollutants at up to 40 times the levels allowed under Canadian or American laws and regulations. The software produced and used by Volkswagen is known as a “Defeat Device”.

Vehicles affected by the ignition switch problems are: 

  • Audi A3 2.0L TDI 2009-2015 models
  • Audi A6 Quattro, A7 Quattro, A8, A8L and Q5 2014-2016 models
  • Audi Q7 2013-2015 models
  • VW Beetle 2.0L TDI 2009-2015 models
  • VW Beetle Convertible 2.0L TDI 2012-2015 models

  • VW Golf SportWagen 2.0L TDI 2015 model
  • VW Jetta 2.0L TDI 2009-2015 models

  • VW Passat 2.0L TDI 2012-2015 models

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
