Emission standards are crucial to limiting the impact of vehicles on the environment. Unfortunately, the auto industry has come under fire in recent years over serious allegations of test result manipulation. Diesel cars from several leading manufacturers were falsely presented as emission-compliant vehicles, when in reality they emitted significantly higher levels of harmful substances than allowed.
Appearance of Dieselgate Compliance
It is now known that multiple car manufacturers, including Renault, Opel, Peugeot, Citroën, Mercedes, Dacia and DS, were involved in what is now referred to as ‘Dieselgate’. They have installed software in their diesel cars that lowers emission levels during testing, but those levels rise when the cars are actually on the road.
As a result, diesel cars, once marketed as more environmentally friendly, emit far more pollutants than we ever imagined. This has led to serious consequences for diesel car owners.
The Consequences for Owners of Diesel Cars
This scandal has caused diesel cars to experience significant depreciation, making them harder to sell. Furthermore, owners paid too much for cars that did not meet the promised environmental standards.
If you own or have owned a diesel car of the listed brands and it was built between September 2009 and September 2019, it is very likely that you have overpaid as a result of the manufacturer’s manipulation.
Right to Compensation: Am I Eligible?
The good news is that as a duped car owner you are entitled to compensation. This also applies to those who have leased a diesel car of the brands concerned.
To qualify for one diesel claimsyou must meet the following criteria:
- You are the owner or former owner of a diesel car of the brands Renault, Opel, Peugeot, Citroën, Mercedes, Dacia or DS, or you have leased such a car.
