VW Confession 

VW’S CONFESSION THAT it illegally programed the software in 11 million diesel-powered cars to cheat on emissions tests comes with the sting of betrayal for owners. The automaker’s been touting the benefits of “clean diesel” for years, and it dominates the American market for the gasoline alternative. 

The accusation applies to 482,000 diesel-powered, four-cylinder Jetta, Beetle, Audi A3, and Golf cars sold between 2008 and 2015 in the US, and to Passat cars sold from 2014 to 2015. Today, Volkswagen said the software is present on 11 million cars worldwide. “I personally am deeply sorry that we have broken the trust of our customers and the public,” CEO Dr. Martin Winterkorn said in a statement. The company has denied rumors he will resign.
