Serious judgement passed by German Court in a case resulting from 'Diesel Gate'

A German court has ordered the defendant manufacturer to buy back a Skoda Yeti and pay the owner the amount of 21.818,33 € plus interest,  the purchase value of the car minus a reduction for the value of the kilometres already driven.

The owner had bought the car equipped with defeat device. The court found that the car’s emission software programming was installed intentionally, violating the law and causing the value of the car to go down.

It seems the emission scandal is becoming more complicated for VW, also in the European Union.
