California ARB instructs Volkswagen Group to begin recall and repair process for 3.0L diesels

The California Air Resources Board sent an In Use Compliance letter notifying Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche to start the process necessary to recall and repair illegal emissions software in all 3-liter diesel vehicles, model years 2009 – 2015, sold in California.

The companies will now have 45 business days to assemble their plan and deliver it to the Air Resources Board.

During a meeting with US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (ARB) officials last week, VW and Audi officials told the regulatory agencies that the issues the two agencies had raised in a 2 November Notice of Violation (EPA) and In-Use Compliance letter (ARB) (earlier post) extend to all 3.0-liter diesel engines from model years 2009 through 2016.
