At the last count 11 million VW cars are involved. VW are in trouble big time and it is all their own fault. The executives and many at the top will rightly have to "carry the can" for this mess up. Surely, they had no need to blatantly cheat?
Sorry, but I have absolutely no sympathy for this unethical business behaviour. They deserve to suffer for deliberately deceiving the public and the testers. It would not surprise me if some senior executives get lengthy prison sentences.
As investigations continue, I expect we will hear of others (not VW) involved in similar cheats. I
have no sympathy as there is absolutely no place for unethical
"carrying ons" like this in the 21st century. VW should have been above
this sort of behaviour. They got caught cheating and have to take the consequences. This means money and prison.
