Make VW Pay
The EPA says Volkswagen designed some 482,000 "clean" diesel cars to get away with violating the law. They built elaborate software -- called a "defeat device" -- to turn on emission controls during testing and turn them off during regular driving. And when they were caught, they denied it as long as they could.
VW not only admits it broke the law. They ripped off hundreds of thousands of consumers who thought they were buying clean vehicles. And they put our health at risk -- emitting as much as 40 times the legal limit of smog-forming pollutants.
