I still have difficulties understanding how a large corporation would resort to that level of dishonesty, yes, this cheating technology exists today and it was not much technology, just existing or added sensor(s) in the steering system. Switching to correct emission while steering wheel was not moving, meant a car was on the test station, was the key technology. Audi CEO was arrested recently so this cheating permeated many in the VW company.

.

The problem lies not only with VW and Audi.

The word on the street is that the EPA made a deal with a certain manufacturer(s)... if they withdraw their current engines, EPA will not investigate any further.

Well... your guess is as good as mine.

If this indeed is the case certain would be primely MB, but also Chrysler and GM. I am not aware of any other diesels except full size trucks.
