Back in April, Volkswagen finally agreed to either buy back or fix cars fitted with the emissions-cheating 2.0-liter TDI engine. That was welcome news for owners who had gone more than six months without knowing what would happen with their cars. At the time, however, the company still had no proposed fix for the 85,000 Porsches, Audis, and Volkswagens fitted with the company's 3.0-liter diesel V6. But that may be about to change.
that Volkswagen is close to announcing a fix for the TDI V6s equipped with the emissions cheating software, citing an anonymous source. Pending internal review, VW is expected to announce a software upgrade for the engines, potentially paired with a new exhaust system catalytic converter.
The company announced it had a potential solution for the 3.0-liter diesel engines back in January, but the final decision was delayed to focus on fixing the 2.0-liter vehicles. VW still has to finalize the details of the agreement to fix those vehicles before it announces the solution for the 3.0-liter diesels.
