I just read the yahoo update on this. Apparently they're getting ready to launch an investigation into other automakers to make sure that it isn't something other car makers are doing as well. So we'll know in the coming months if honda or others were guilty too.Been following the news about Volkswagen like a disastertourist lately.
I'm really amused as I must say.
(in short: Volkswagen in crisis after scandal leaking
where they deliberately used cheating software to lower emissions during tests
while their dieselcars emission levels on the road are so much higher in realtime
America discovered and unveiled this fraude, GOD BLESS AMERICA)
anyway they say in the news that all car manufactures cheat
trying to lower their dieselemissionlevels on their cars.
Could Honda have done this as well?
considering their dieselmarket is extremely limited to
the 1.6 here in Europe and the 1.5 in India (if I'm not mistaken)
Any thoughts? I'm just bitten by the idea of just the possibility.
Volkswagen is looking at the biggest fine ever: 18billion dollars
and their marketvalue has dropped a whoooole lot.
They just put aside over 6 billion euro's to cover the first part of this financial misery :surprise:
Honda's diesel use is so low i can't see them doing what VW did. The thing about VW is the fact that they own so many automakers and or share parts/engines with them. Right now the crisis is limited to VW and Audi... but what about other car brands they own like Skoda, Seat and even Porsche? Even though all of those don't use diesel applications, this software could still be present in gas engines, especially high output engines that would be more likely to have higher emissions output.
