The dirty truth about diesel emissions


Share this article:


Have you ever owned a Mercedes-Benz, Vauxhall  or Volkswagen diesel vehicle? If so, you could be a victim of an emissions scandal.

Despite the pressing climate emergency, and the impact on human health, vehicle manufacturers such as the Volkswagen Group, Vauxhall, and Daimler AG (the parent company of Mercedes-Benz) have been accused of cheated regulations designed to protect human health and the environment by fitting illegal defeat devices into their diesel vehicles. This resulted in high levels of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) being emitted into the atmosphere.

In some cases, the noxious emissions were up to 35 times the legal limit. “Dieselgate” is one of the biggest corporate scandals in history and its impact is far from over.

Millions of diesel vehicles produced by Mercedes-Benz, the Volkswagen Group and Vauxhall were affected and subjected to recall. While  manufacturers have paid billions to settle class action claims and regulatory fines in other countries, this is not the case in England and Wales.

You could be owed thousands of pounds

Affected drivers in England and Wales deserve compensation too. If you owned or leased an affected vehicle, you could be able to claim thousands of pounds in compensation.
