Volkswagen Agrees to Settlement of Nearly $15 Billion, will reimburse owners

The emissions scandal which rocked Volkswagen has ended in the company promising to pay billions to reimburse owners of its diesel vehicles and to try to fix damage to the environment.

The company installed software that fooled federal regulators into believing that emissions from many of the diesel vehicles were low when the opposite was true.

More than 17,000 owners in Georgia could qualify for a payment of $5,100 and a buy back of the vehicle.

The company has set up a website to allow owners to receive information about the settlement and the payments.

This is a chart provided by the Georgia Attorney General’s Office on the vehicles affected by the emissions scandal and the settlement.
