VW customers in the US were shocked by the emissions cheating in what they had believed were environmentally friendly cars.
One owner of a VW Golf shows how he tried to get his money back before finally filing a lawsuit.
Former Volkswagen executive Oliver Schmidt has been handed down a seven-year prison sentence in a US court, after pleading guilty to charges stemming from his role in the German carmaker's emissions-cheating scandal.
A study commissioned by VW has found that some staff at the German carmaker cooperated with Brazil's former military regime. But it said there was no clear evidence that the collaboration was "institutionalized."
More than 15,000 VW customers on the internet platform of consumer group myRight are suing the carmaker over its diesel emissions cheating. The case is also being pursued by a US attorney who has already litigated successfully against VW.
