Dieselgate Buyback Storage Location Produces A Haunting And Depressing Image

Dieselgate should be a familiar phrase to every every existing Volkswagen owner by now. The German automotive manufacturer was hit hard on September 2015 when they were caught using an emissions cheat software that knew when the car was being tested. The software allowed the affected diesel cars to emit less pollutants and passing the test with flying colors, while in actuality producing a lot more pollutants under normal operation.

Currently, Volkswagen is in the process of buying back or fixing the existing affected diesel models. If you drive one of these cars and haven’t taken any action, you should do so quickly as there may be some financial gain on your end.

The TDI Roadster We’ll Never Get

As for the fate of those cars that Volkswagen are currently buying back, we have just discovered where they’re being held. The image of thousands of Volkswagen diesels laying dormant may just be one of the most haunting and depressing images of modern day. The image recalls a time when these cars were new and sitting next to each other somewhere in a major port. Except this time they’re destined to head into the scrapper or recycled in any form or fashion Volkswagen deem fitting.

  1. The issue here is bolstered by the fact that, AT LAST, governments are realising that diesel emissions are the most toxic and cause illnesses and deaths every day. It’s now possible to produce small engined vehicles, with turbos, that ca develop better torque. They may never be better on fuel consumption figures, but even that is improving. It’s now being considered selfish to run a diesel … same as smoking tobacco in public.

  2. It would be immoral to foist these poisonous diesels to “3rd world” countries, many of which have existing serious problems. Toxic emissions shouldn’t be added to their woes.
