Volkswagen Diesel Car Recall Delayed By Six Weeks In Germany

Written By:

In yet another blow in the fallout of the emissions scandal, Volkswagen have been forced to delay the recall of the 2.5 million affected diesel cars  by six weeks, according to German daily newspaper Bild.

The recall has been delayed by the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA), Germany's Federal Motor Transport Authority which has not yet gotten approval for the VW proposed fixes for the Passat diesel.

Bild quoted the KBA spokesman as saying that the KBA was still examining the technical solutions submitted by VW and it's unclear whether the Passat's engine will comply with Euro 5 emission standards after the refitting.

Volkswagen had originally planned to start refitting more than 500,000 German Passat models on Feb. 29 but the present delay could see that date pushed back to mid April.
