Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Volkswagen has reached a $15 billion settlement with regulators regarding its diesel cheating scandal. Discuss here if you think this settlement is fair, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

We don't know how many additional sales were based on the illegally inflated mileage numbers but the fine should be large enough to have an impact on the entire industry. I don't know that 15 Billion is that number or not but it is a large chuck of change.

Glad they got caught.

Personally, I'd think that a bigger threat to consumers would be a safety recall (such as the Takata airbag-inflator recall). I have to give credit where it's due...local Honda dealer picked my Civic up at my place of business, replaced it for free, and delivered it back---even though I had bought it second-hand with 138K miles on it. From what I've read (below), GM is trying to renege on recalling some of their affected vehicles:

Funny thing about the fix for the problem. My brother has an Amaroc 4wd and after VW recalled and "Fixed" his car it has 10 extra HP and also has better fuel economy than before.
