No I mean cars that do not kill people when you turn the ignition switch. Don't forget nobody did from higher emissions of VW's but dozens of people did from faulty ignition switches
Will send all the unemployed workers to the US so GM can finally build some decent cars.
I think it is outragous to raise so much fuss about some small Volkswagen diesel cars when every day tens of thousands of big engine diesel trucks pull into urban areas to deliver the goods to shopping malls and supermarkets. This is typical American hypocrisy, just like this argument that guns protect people. Right now I see them only kill innocent people. And yes, God help America because it is cursed when it comes to easy access to high powered guns.
No way, the US government will strip this company down to their underwear. Since it is not a US company they will show no mercy. This scandal will affect all German car makers. Since German cars are not cheap they way bought only for the image of German engineering. That image has been ruined.
You sound like somebody that writes without checking what he writes (an americans). I am actually German, only drove a VW beetle as a student and left the US in 2002 because it is too boring to live there (except for some beautiful nature in some parts)
We all have to breathe this air. You can buy bottled water but can't avoid breathing the air surrounding us unless you want to run your own air bottling plant.
Volkswagen will eventually have to declare bankruptcy and be saved by the German government (State of Lower Saxonia - 20 % share holder). US government will try to finance their deficit with German tax surplus.
Buy all WPRT you can. Now that the EPA has put their nose into diesel engines Diesel as a fuel may be outlawed in urban areas which makes LNG engines a lot more attractive. Diesel emissions contain toxic NOx.
Some day this surplus oil will come to an end again. Why do companies like Shell want to drill in the Arctic? Cars may become electric but airplanes will need Kerosene.? One day oil will fetch $ 200/barrel and this day will be not so far off. Only hope that SDRL survives this slump period. They were leveraged for continuous growth. Economic growth seems to become a problem in many developed countries. US growth is not what it used to be despite of all the cheap money and matters are worse in Europe and Japan.
