I was reading the synopsis of the clean diesel scandal on Jalopnik and I had a thought:
What are our counterparts in Europe doing about this scandal?
If VW did it here its probable they did it there too and their standards aren’t any more lax than ours IIRC.
So in reality this recall is even more wide reaching that it currently appears once the EU cracks down on them. Furthermore their diesel market share there is even bigger there so the shitstorm is only beginning for VW.
