Volkswagen Says Whistle-Blower Pushed It to Admit Broader Cheating

What a mess for VW. Good time for them to get religion.

The only VW I ever drove was a 2014 Jetta SEL as a rental earlier this year and it was the worst car I'd driven in a long time. Horrible, loud, bumpy ride. I was really surprised. Made my 3 feel like a luxury car.

Yes, very encouraging.... [NOT!]

"In a letter to employees on Thursday, Herbert Diess, chief executive of the division that produces Volkswagen brand cars, said people who provided information would not be fired or face damage claims. Mr. Diess cautioned, though, that the company could not shield employees from criminal charges."

Read about this earlier today. The word desperation came to mind. It must be a fun place to work now. Your co-worker gets reassigned and you wonder if he/she was involved, just knew about it, will end up in jail... Normal work stuff...

I'm very curious to know exactly how many employees were in on it.

Ominous. Clearly widespread and organized. If the higher-ups didn't know, it's only because they didn't WANT to know how performance targets were being met.

"According to Reuters, Bosch provides the EDC17 engine control module and other basic software for almost all the four-cylinder diesel engines sold in North America, including models by Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Those systems control how vehicles clean spent fuel before releasing it as exhaust."
