Your VW TDI Settlement Extended Warranty From A to Z

Volkswagen Group or VW is a famous German vehicle manufacturer, selling well-known cars such as Audi, Porsche, Bugatti, and other brands.

The company has faced a lot of backlash since the diesel-emissions scandal in 2015. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) confirmed that the 2009–2015 2.0L TDI vehicles do not comply with federal emissions standards. Volkswagen has made a settlement with the EPA to rectify this issue. The agreement includes an emissions modification plan and extended warranty.

You can visit VW’s Volkswagen/Audi/Porsche Diesel Emissions Settlement Program page if you want to know more about it and check whether your vehicle is eligible.
