Porsche and Audi in VW trouble?
 
Here's a news item I've just clipped and pasted:

"Audi (OTCPK:AUDVF) and Porsche (OTCPK:POAHY) have responded to new claims that test-defeat devices were used on their vehicles by ordering a halt to car sales in the U.S."

I cannot yet vouch for its accuracy.

Seth- Only applies to vehicles with the 3 liter V6 diesel engine. Turns out that one has cheater software, too, only not quite as bad as the VW/Audi 2 liter I4.

I was aware of that Terry. They are among the more expensive big cars Porsche and Audi sell.

You know, it's easy to sympathize with the VW owners who have been suckered and defrauded, and will lose a good deal of money. What about the VW shareholders whose shares have plummeted in value?
Hundreds of billions of euros.

What a gaffe.

Agree but every car factory has it's issues - no one physically suffered.

Understand that it's a bad deal but my guess is all involved will be taken care of but for the wrongdoers and stockholders.
