Diesel Scandal: Hyundai, Kia Being Investigated in Germany

Volkswagen's diesel engine scandal came to light in September 2015. The company paid a heavy price for it. Recall that the vehicles it offered were fitted with a device that ensured they were compliant during regulatory testing. However, in real-world use, those vehicles polluted much more than the standards allowed.

Followed lawsuits, fines and changes in the company's direction. One result is that we no longer find Volkswagen diesel engines here in Canada, while elsewhere in the world, it’s hit-and-miss.

And, as if by chance, diesel engines have disappeared from the offerings of several manufacturers since then. Without pointing any fingers at specific automakers, there was much suspicion that other companies had employed similar tactics with their diesel-engine vehicles.
