Manipulated engines – diesel: Audi sentenced to compensation for the first time

The current proceedings involved various Audi models, some of them used cars, that four buyers had acquired for between EUR 12,000 and EUR 30,000. The VW EA 189 engine was installed in all of them. When it became known that the engines had been deliberately manipulated and that the emission limits were exceeded in road traffic, a software update was developed that was also installed on the Audi vehicles. Most buyers sued VW themselves for damages, but some also sued Audi. However, the subsidiary denies having known anything about the manipulation when it decided to buy and install the VW diesel engine.
