When Volkswagen sells cars that are “still under warranty”
Volkswagen has been under intense pressure from regulators in the U.S. and abroad to provide information about the quality of the vehicles it sells.
The German automaker said it would be giving the American authorities more information about its cars’ safety, including whether they were ever repaired or replaced, and whether they received any repair or replacement parts.
The information will also include whether the cars have been in the repair or replace program since their last sale, and how long the car has been on the road, according to the European Union’s Directorate General for Consumer Protection.
Volkswagen has already given that information to the U,U.K., Germany and France.
The automaker also said it will share information on its vehicles’ operating condition with regulators and other customers, including regulators in Canada and the U.-Korea, and others.
Volkswagen, which has been the world’s biggest carmaker for the past 20 years, is one of several automakers under scrutiny for the quality and safety of their vehicles.
Last week, the German government imposed an 11-year ban on selling cars with more than 1,000 miles on them.
Volvo’s woes were highlighted last month when it announced it had received a $30 billion bailout from the European Central Bank.
Volkswagen is also facing lawsuits from European regulators over safety claims that the company’s diesel vehicles were prone to fires and explosions.
