VW diesels cheating emissions testing

VW accused of using software in 482,000 diesels to skirt U.S. clean-air rules.

The EPA press release.

The California ARB compliance letter.

Yes, I realize that only lawyers get rich in these things, but sign me up for the f'in class action lawsuit.

Via MeFi.

Audi and other VW affiliates are falling in line. They all used the same code.

No Lamborghini diesels exist that I know of.

I love how the mucky-muck locals that were so proud of VW coming to Chattanooga, and are driving VW's... are quiet and probably shopping for new cars in Atlanta.
