Volkswagen's recall: how the work is going, in wake of the emissions scandal
The Volkswagen group here has completed work on nearly two-thirds of the diesel-engined vehicles - cars and vans - recalled in the wake of the emissions scandal.
There are three engines and four marques involved (Audi, VW, SEAT and Skoda).
The 2-litre TDis require just a software update with work taking half an hour or so.
Work on the 1.2 TDi engines also only takes around 30 minutes.
But those with 1.6-litre TDI engines involve both software and hardware upgrades and take an hour to sort out.
The hardware involves fitting a new 'flow transformer' to help better regulate how fuel and air are burned in the engine.
Here is a breakdown of the numbers dealt with so far. The figures were sought and obtained by Motors from the Volkswagen Group.
All cars (Irish and imports):
• Of 144,308 vehicles due, 64pc have been fixed.
• Of 63,776 Volkswagen, 67pc completed
• Of 43,712 Audi, 64pc completed
• Of 6,022 SEAT, 67pc completed
• Of 20,346 Skoda, 61pc completed
• Of 10,452 vans, 54pc completed
• Of 83,342 vehicles, 69pc completed
• Of 35,940 Volkswagen, 73pc completed
• Of 18,404 Audi, 71pc completed
• Of 4,363 SEAT, 72pc completed
• Of 16,189 Skoda, 65pc completed
• Of 8,446 Vans, 57pc completed
The level of imports is affecting the overall average, as the Irish figures show.
