OK so I’m a biased VW owner but not a diesel owner, friends of mine who are diesel owners that may have the affected vehicles seem to all have the attitude of “So what, I get fifty to the gallon…” and their biggest fear is the rumor going round that VW may buy back their cars then their attitude becomes, “like Hell they will…”
I’m overwhelmed by the the “Death to VW” witch hunt going on with I’m sure thousands of lawyers licking their chops, but why just VW? Many manufacturers have been busted for fudging (lying) about mileage numbers and they get away with just refunding customers a few bucks when actually if you think about it if you overstate your mileage numbers than at the same time you have understated your emission numbers, where’s Congress and the EPA now? Oh yeah silly me, mileage doesn’t figure into the EPA formulas on emissions, go figure.
This is just another example of what happens when companies loose site of what’s really important and just worry about the bottom line and the almighty shareholders.
Personally I feel for the people like Charles who are going to get stuck with the fix and wouldn’t blame any of them if they changed allegiance and bailed out but I just can’t picture Charles working for Mazda.
Maybe Charles can reach out to Leo’s people and get him to do a guest appearance on THM.
