VW Diesel Owners Get up to $10K Each, Total Bill Hits $14.7B

Jun 28, 2016 - 3:27 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Details on exactly how Volkswagen will pay back customers and the U.S. government over its diesel emissions scandal have been finalized.

To settle with owners, Volkswagen has put together a pool of $10.033 billion to cover the cost of buybacks, emissions fixes and cash settlements. The brand has also agreed to pay the US government $2.7 billion for environmental mitigation costs and another $2 billion is being spent on research into zero-emissions vehicles.

That brings the total cost of Volkswagen’s diesel scandal in the US to $14.7 billion. This is also the largest consumer auto industry class action settlement in U.S. history.

5 Dope Wheels for Your Volkswagen

The right wheel can make or break a car, and when it comes to Volkswagens, some wheels simply work better than others.

When it comes to wheels for your Volkswagen, here are five choices that we think will enhance the look of any VW.



BBS RS-GT
