As you may have seen on many news and TV shows now (including watchdog episode 12/7/17) many people are having issues as a result of the VW emission update on their effected VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat cars.However even with the Department for Transport and other above shows receiving thousands of complaints VW themselves claim to have received very few and are failing to take action. The amount of complaints they claim to have received changes when asked, going up and down. We are also aware that they close cases without consent as well as simply refusing to log others

This petition to get the government to do their own survey and truly assess the number of people who are being negatively affected by the released update. We want a true figure of those affect and not further lies from VW. This way the government can see the true impact and take action to help its citizens.These issues cover performance, mechanical and suitably of the cars. Below is a list of some of the issues people have experienced - Performance - loss in power, change in acceleration pattern, increase in noise and loss of MPGMechanical - EGR failure, DPF clogging and eventual failure, Piston faults, ECU faults (failing to log fault reports when warning lights appear) and Turbo parts and in full failure.Suitability - increase in regeneration cycles (meaning the car must perform active regeneration more frequently making the car no longer suitable for certain driving patterns)While VW claim KBA and VCA have tested there fix and approved on all the related points this is bending the truth and in some cases a full lie.- These bodies assessed the fix to ensure the cars noise levels remained with in the EU car category (EU5) and not the cars original specifications, which allowed for a notable noise increase on many of the models.- These bodies checked only Top end torque. They did not assess low or mid range torque neither did they look at torque arc. Top end torque is only used when your car is pushing to its limit, not in every day driving.

VW admit that they have now changed how the car runs, including increasing the workload of the EGR system and DPF filter, however they claim this will not affect the life span of the parts.They also admit that this will result in and increase in soot particles which in-turn means the cars are required to regenerate more frequently. They fail, however, to deal with the fact this changes the usage of the car and will, in some cases, make the cars unfit for purpose.Affected or not i ask that you sign this petition in order to help the government get a true understanding of the impact this update is having.Thank you
