Under the action plan, Volkswagen AG and the other Group brands whose vehicles are affected will present the technical solutions and measures to the responsible authorities in October. Customers will be kept informed about the timing and the procedure for this service maintenance action.

All affected vehicles with EU5 Type EA 189 Diesel engines are technically safe and roadworthy.

New vehicles from the Volkswagen Group with EU6 Diesel engines currently available in the European Union – and therefore in Italy – not affected, comply with legal requirements and environmental standards.
