Volkswagen must buy back 'dieselgate' cars: Germany's top court

Source: Aljazeera

Court ruling sets precedent for hundreds of thousands of car owners affected by VW emissions test cheating in Germany.

Volkswagen (VW) must reimburse German car owners who bought vehicles fitted with devices able to cheat emissions tests, but the buyback amount will depend on mileage, Germany's top court has said, in principle upholding a lower court decision.

Monday's ruling by the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe set an important precedent for hundreds of thousands of German people affected by the "dieselgate" scandal that has rocked VW since 2015.

About 60,000 similar individual German VW owners' cases are already open.

"Volkswagen now aims to soon bring these cases to a close in agreement with the plaintiffs," the company said in a statement, promising "appropriate offers" to affected owners.

Total bullshit shakedown; supposedly, pre-fix- my 37 mpg car polluted more than some enormous SUV getting half the mileage.
