Exhaust gas cleaning does not work as prescribed

The KBA ordered the immediate recall in October 2018 on the grounds that the built -in systems for reducing the nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gases would be throttled in its effectiveness, among other things, at outside temperatures below 17 degrees Celsius. With such switch-off devices, more nitrogen oxides are emitted than permitted under EU law.

Diesel scandal: the real background

The exhaust gas scandal is the largest scandal in German automotive history. He cost Volkswagen and other corporations billions and revealed dramatic undesirable developments, especially in the VW group. But the scandal is also used politically to push through goals such as driving bans. How did the diesel drama even come? What is actually behind the "German environmental aid"? And why are there only diesel driving bans in Germany for cars that are not even four years old, which are justified with local exceedings of measured values? Site has been looking behind the scenes since 2015.

On 17. October 2018, the authority therefore ordered Opel to remove the inadmissible facilities and convert the engine control software of the car. A voluntary recall and conversion campaign that had been running since April 2018 did not consider the KBA to be sufficient.

Opel’s application directed against this to grant preliminary legal protection by the Schleswig Administrative Court was unsuccessful (decision of 09.11.2018, AZ. 3 B 127/18). The 5. Senate of the OVG has now rejected the complaint against it.
