Fix for 2015 2-Liter Diesels Approved

There’s been a lot of talk about diesel buyouts and fixes lately. But one group that’s been left out was what VW calls “Generation 3” diesel vehicles from the 2015 model year. But after 16 months of waiting, that’s about to change:

Volkswagen finally received approval to fix certain 2-liter diesel vehicles to make their emissions systems legal, at least for about 67,000 of the 475,000 illegal 2-liter “clean diesel” vehicles.

VW will remove the “defeat device” software and replace it with something a lot less cheat-y. Then sometime next year, VW will install new software in addition to a diesel particulate filter, diesel oxidation catalyst and a nitrogen oxide catalyst.
