Audi To Recall 127,000 Additional Vehicles Over Emissions Cheat

Audi has been ordered to recall 127,000 of its latest Euro-6 diesel models after Germany’s KBA automotive watchdog detected illicit emission-control software.

According to local publication, Bild am Sonntag, the 127,000 vehicles will be included in the ongoing voluntary recall of 850,000 V6 and V8 diesel vehicles announced in July.

The KBA hasn’t publicized exactly how software used in the affected models skirted emissions regulations but informed Audi that it had to respond by February 2 on how it plans to update vehicle software controlling emissions, ensuring that the vehicles cannot manipulate emissions, Reuters reports.

The recall comes after months of examinations between Audi and the KBA to investigate any potential irregularities.

“As part of this systematic and detailed assessment, the KBA has now also issued a notice regarding Audi models with V6 TDI engines.

“The engine control software for the vehicles in question will be completely revised, tested and submitted to the KBA for approval,” Audi said.

These recalls are just the latest in the seemingly never-ending flurry of vehicles discovered with emissions cheating software in the years since Volkswagen’s dieselgate scandal.

In June 2017, the German government alleged that Audi cheated on emissions tests for nearly 24,000 A7 and A8 models. This quickly resulted in a recall of said models.

My mum has a TDI TT so I wonder if this will effect her. They had an easy to use "look up" option, that seems to have disappeared?

With the recent news that VW Group have been using monkeys and more unbelievably people for live emission testing, it should, maybe, come as no surprise that there is still more and more cloak and dagger style events seeping out into the public domain.
I get a distinctly uneasy feeling that VW, Porsche, Audi, Mercedes and BMW have the stance of companies verging on being out of control, at least in a moral sense.
The EU is also pursuing an investigation into the manipulation of the price of steel as it believes there may have been some kind of cartel being operated by the big German companies that gave them an unfair advantage.

It seems quite menacing, almost like a James Bond style villain bent on global domination at all costs.

The link is there. Not sure if that's updated for the newest recall.

some say the emissions regulations are a political tool to destroy or at least make it very hard for vehicle companies,

i look at my little van, its got a catalytic convertor, turbo, dpf filter, erg valve, and now adblue, when does it end, when are these people satisfied, the answer is never, that's why the car companies are forced to do what they do.

And look at the fines, not millions, billions, its an insane back to front world right now.

people use to put little air pumps on their 911s to give false readings once upon a time.

German police raid Audi employee homes in latest Dieselgate probe

German prosecutors have raided the homes of a number current and ex-Audi employees as part of the ongoing Dieselgate investigations in the country. The raids come almost a year after two Audi factories were also searched as part of a similar investigation.

The raids on homes in the states of Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate were first reported by Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung. Prosecutors in Munich have confirmed the searches following press enquiries. Last month, investigators said that the number of Audi employees under investigation had more than doubled from six to 13, but that number doesn't currently include any current or former Audi executives.

Those under investigation are alleged to have committed criminal offences in the United States, where the Dieselgate controversy first came to light after revelations that a vast number of diesel Volkswagen Group cars were fitted with cheat devices to get around government emissions tests.

Audi facilities have also been raided since the searches at private domestic addresses – Audi's headquarters at Ingolstadt and its production facility in Neckarsulm have been searched. 'Now the focus of investigators is on the use of technical means to manipulate the emissions levels of 3-litre V6 diesel engines intended for the European market,' the German prosecutors' office said in a statement.

The raids on employees' homes are said to be in relation to possible fraud and illegal advertising in relation to hundreds of thousands of cars sold in Europe.

As many as 80,000 Audi-developed V6 diesels used in Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche cars have so far been found to have been fitted with software that allows them to skirt emissions regulations.

The news comes in what has been another tough week for Audi and the wider Volkswagen group. The German car maker was found to be involved in emissions tests that forced monkeys to inhale diesel fumes to try and prove they were clean. The company, along with rivals BMW and Daimler, has since denounced the tests.
