We now know the emissions problem affects not only VWs, but Porsches and Audis with 4-cylinder diesels as well. And we just learned the air pollution issues affect 6-cylinder diesels as well as 4s.
Will VW suffer more from direct costs of repairing some 11 million cars world-wide (not counting the newly discovered “dirty” cars) ─ or from we consumers refusing to buy VWs?
I asked my much more even-tempered than me wife, who was getting close to replacing her gas powered 2006 Passat with another one, whether or not, knowing what we already know, she’ll buy her third straight VW. Her answer? “ABSOLUTLY NOT!”! And she means it. Not now and not ever.
