VW’s diesel cars lacking retrofitting updates will lose registration and be fined

If you own a diesel car from VW’s stables, you are likely to benefit reading this.


The owners of Volkswagen vehicles that have been affected by the diesel emissions scandal please perk up and pay attention. The refusal to get an engine software update will get your vehicles de-registered.

This matter was reported by Focus Online citing documents from Germany’s KBA, a motor vehicle watchdog.

Ever since the news of its diesel emission scandal broke out in September 2015, Volkswagen (VW) has recalled nearly 11 million vehicles worldwide and updated the software that was cheating emissions tests.

In Europe, 5.5 million of the 8.5 million effected vehicles have been retrofitted, including 1.8 million cars in VW’s German home market.

However, many users have reservations on retrofitted their car with VW’s new software fearing that the changes would make the car guzzle more fuel and make it slower.

As per a report by Focus Online, all those who have received a recall notice will necessarily have to retrofit their cars with the new updates, failing which the cars are likely to be de-registered as early as next month. The users will also have to pay any resulting fees.

A spokesman at Wolfsburg-based VW declined to comment.
