VW says recall to start in January, be completed by end-2016

  • Volkswagen (VW) would launch a recall for cars affected by its diesel emissions software in January and complete the fix by the end of 2016, the chief executive of the automobile major has said. "If all goes according to plan, we can start the recall in January. All the cars should be fixed by the end of 2016," Chief Executive Matthias Mueller said on Wednesday. For the US market, a company spokeswoman said, the remedy will first have to be agreed upon with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but she offered no timing for that. (Source: IANS)
