Canadian owners of affected Volkswagen AG vehicles got up to speed in the auto maker’s diesel scandal have achieved an arrangement of compensation that will go from $5,100 to $8,000 for the 105,000 Canadian owners affected, depending upon the make and model of their vehicle.
An arrangement between the company and drivers who propelled a class-action suit has been endorsed on a basic level and was relied upon to be signed Monday in Ontario Superior Court.
The drivers have been holding up since it was found out in 2015 that numerous VW vehicles were fitted with programming to trick emissions tests. Vehicles fitted with the cheat emitted nitrogen oxide at a level ordinarily more than allowed under pollution guidelines.
The arrangement permits owners to offer their vehicles back to Volkswagen Canada Inc., exchange them in for new vehicles or have them repaired.
The settlement does exclude a confirmation of obligation from VW Canada.
