VW and Audi Busted by EPA. Again.

More VW and Audi emissions recalls will be needed now that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has hit the company with a second notice of Clean Air violations. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, no seriously — what the heck were you guys thinking?

Although the first EPA notice of violation included 2-liter engines that emitted up to 40 times the legal limit of nitrogen oxides, the second notice of violation includes only 3-liter engines. Those engines are emitting up to nine times the legal levels of nitrogen oxides and all in model year 2014-2016 VW, Audi and Porsche vehicles.

The Audi vehicles mentioned in the second notice are: 2016 Audi A6 Quattro, 2016 Audi A7 Quattro, 2016 Audi A8, 2016 Audi A8L, and the 2016 Audi Q5.
