Nationwide Class Action Complaint Filed Against VW


Last night, Keller Rohrback attorney, Gretchen Freeman Cappio, was interviewed by CBCRadio As It Happens host Carol Off on the recently filed nationwide class action complaint against Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. The complaint alleges that the auto giant deliberately deceived environmentally-conscious consumers and the EPA when it installed defeat devices in over 11 million cars worldwide. 

The affected vehicles are programmed with a defeat device that can sense when emissions are being tested and turn on equipment that reduces emissions. In the complaint filed, Keller Rohrback states that “the technology needed to control emissions from Defendant’s cars to meet state and federal emissions regulations reduce their performance, limiting acceleration, torque, and fuel efficiency.”

If you or a family member owns or leases any of the affected vehicles described above that vehicle is subject to a recall, or if you are concerned that your vehicle is part of the recall, please call attorneys Gretchen Freeman CappioMatthew Preusch, or Daniel Mensher at 866.560.4043 or via email at to discuss our investigation and your potential claims against Volkswagen.
