    Yeah, blame the Germans. Of course VW were wrong to rig the tests, but as usual, tj is interested only in furthering his anti-European agenda.

    So what? - I'm not German, I don't own a VW and I don't own any VW stock. I was just highlighting your ongoing anti-European drive (no pun intended).

    "Volkswagen says that an internal investigation has revealed that 11 million of its vehicles sold worldwide are fitted with the same software designed to trick emissions-testing equipment as the 500,000 vehicles involved in an emerging scandal in the United States."
