2016 has been the year of emissions cheating. There’s been so much talk about VW’s massive diesel cover-up that it sure would be nice to finish out the year without hearing the words “defeat” or “device” again.
But it ain’t gonna happen.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) – the same environmental agency that is putting VW through the ringer right now – has reportedly discovered “defeat devices” in hundreds of thousands of Audi vehicles. Swell.
