VW software fix ‘has damaged vehicles’

If you thought Volkswagen had fixed its toxic emissions scandal, it seems their solution may not be the end of the matter.The software fix, which many customers mistakenly assumed would reduce the amount of harmful pollutants their cars produced, has been carried out on more than half a million VW vehicles in the UK.

Now over 40,000 owners have joined a class action lawsuit, claiming that the fix has actually damaged vehicles, making some of them potentially dangerous to drive.
