OCU claims €22.6m from Volkswagen on behalf of 7,500 car-owners
thinkSPAIN , Saturday, June 17, 2017

CONSUMER organisation OCU has filed a 'block' compensation claim for €22.6 million for customers affected by the Volkswagen 'Dieselgate' scandal.

Around 7,500 people have registered to take action against Volkswagen-Audi Spain after having bought cars with the EA 189 diesel engine, which was doctored in the factory in Germany with a software fitted to mask true nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions readings.

Volkswagen-Audi Spain has been refusing to compensate owners for over a year, given that the Volkswagen Group in the USA agreed to pay between US$5,000 and US$10,000 per vehicle.

The company said at the time that around 680,000 Volkswagen Vans and Audi, Skoda, Seat and Volkswagen cars were affected.
