Daimler fined for cheating emissions

2019-09-26 15:58:40.54478+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Oh, good, it wasn't just VW... sigh. Daimler fined nearly $1 billion for selling cars that cheated emissions tests

Germany’s motor authority found that some 280,000 Mercedes-Benz C-class and E-class vehicles had been outfitted with software that made them look cleaner than they were during testing, similar to the grift that Volkswagen had pulled (though on a smaller scale). That led to a wider recall of some 700,000 affected vehicles around the world last year. Daimler also had to recall 60,000 GLK SUVs for the same issue earlier this year. The extent of Daimler’s cheating is still unknown, as an investigation by the US Department of Justice and a class action lawsuit in New Jersey are still ongoing.
