3.0L V6 TDI U.S. Court Filings – February 14, 2017 On December 20, in U.S. District Court, Volkswagen announced it has reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice and environmental regulators regarding affected 3.0L V6 TDI vehicles in the United States.

The agreement, in the form of a proposed Consent Decree, is subject to U.S. Court approval and applies to the U.S. market only. The proposed terms include:

• A recall of affected 2013-2016 Model Year Volkswagen and Audi 3.0L V6 TDI vehicles with Generation 2 engines to bring them into compliance with the U.S. emissions standards to which they were certified, if appropriate modifications are approved by U.S. environmental regulators. If Volkswagen Group is unable to meet this requirement, it will offer to buy back or terminate the leases of these vehicles and may also seek approval by U.S. environmental regulators to offer customers a modification to substantially reduce their nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.
• A buyback or lease termination of affected 2009-2012 Model Year Volkswagen and Audi 3.0L V6 TDI vehicles with Generation 1 engines or, if approved by U.S. environmental regulators, modification to substantially reduce the vehicles’ nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions so as to allow eligible owners and lessees to keep them.

On February 1, 2017, Volkswagen Group reached proposed settlements with the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee and the Federal Trade Commission regarding 3.0L V6 TDI vehicles in the United States, including a proposed class settlement with U.S. consumers.
The class settlement has been submitted to the U.S. federal court for preliminary approval. Judge Charles Breyer has scheduled a preliminary approval hearing for February 14, 2017.
These filings concern the U.S. court proceedings and the U.S. market. In Canada, consumer class proceedings are underway regarding affected 3.0L V6 TDI vehicles. Updates will be provided as they become available.

On February 14, in U.S. District Court, Judge Charles Breyer granted preliminary approval of the consumer class settlement reached on February 1 regarding 3.0L V6 TDI vehicles in the United States. The proposed settlement is subject to final approval by the U.S. District Court, which is anticipated as early as May 2017, and applies to the U.S. market only.
