Dieselgate update: 3.0-Litre engine fix submitted for approval

2013 VW Touareg V8 TDI R-Line-main

After 4 months of talks and negotiations, Volkswagen’s cheating 3.0-liter V6 diesel engines are finally being addressed.

Audi spokesman, Mark Clothier said: “We are fully cooperating with the U.S. authorities to make our V6 3.0L (diesel) engine compliant with regulations. After meetings between EPA and (California) and our technicians, we filed a recall plan.”

Said plan was officially submitted this week with the following vehicles affected:

  • 2009-2016 VW Touareg
  • 2013-2016 Porsche Cayenne
  • 2013-2016 Audi A7
  • 2014-2016 Audi A6, Audi A8, Audi A8L, Audi Q5
  • 2009-2016 Audi Q7 models.

The proposed fix will need to be approved by federal regulators before it can be rolled out to customers. VW’s fix for the 2.0-litre engine was rejected last month by the same regulators due to insufficient documentation.
