    Good morning,thank you so much for contacting us regarding potentially making a claim for the diesel emissions lawsuit. Our interpretation of the eligibility to join any class action claim against some manufacturers is limited to those who have owned a vehicle during the relevant time or who sourced their vehicle via a financial arrangement with the manufacturers Financial Services. We are not in a position to offer any legal advice regarding making a claim and do not intend to join any suits against manufacturers. Please seek independent advice on your eligibility to do so. Many thanks

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>These large legal firms will not spend a fortune in time without being reasonably sure of a successful outcome. With VW in particular they have already admitted deception so I think it’s a matter of time. Ball park figures suggest £10k. I have no idea how they arrive at these figures. We’ll see how it developes and the effect it will have on the car giants.</p>

    Funnily enough, I was reading the other day (can’t find the source now but it was in a legal journal) that the firm’s engaged in this activity are desperately searching around for the next great cause to keep them in business.  They are not large firms either – neither are they well regarded in the legal profession.

    I correct myself before anyone else does. Slater and Gordon are of course large. And one of the first class action law firms to become known. The article I was reading was discussing other firms who have jumped on the bandwagon, and are at risk of going under. As Slater & Walker nearly did a couple of years ago.

    I was recalling something which happened to us a few years back on a Virgin train, 1st class from Manchester to London. For the complimentary snacks we were offered some rolls. I asked what meat was inside and was told chicken which was fine as we did not eat red meat. We soon discovered after a bite or two it was pork which we do not eat and we were advised to complain to Virgin trains directly which we did straight away. We were offered £250 of rail vouchers by way of an apology for an accidental mistake rapidly and possibly could have got more if we wanted to escalate it. If we compare this to the dieslegate scandal, which  was a deliberate ploy to trick customers I think it´s easy to see how figures of 10 grand are being banded about regularly. What price emotional distress. People thought they were doing the right thing for the planet and are now wracked with guilt!

    Wasn’t the deliberate ploy actually to pull a fast one over the regulators, fwippers?  If any customer is wracked with guilt over dieselgate, as you call it, I would suggest they may benefit from psychiatric help.

    The “wracked with guilt” was tongue in cheek, however if customers were cheated, do they not have some recourse to compensation? Agree an invaluable contribution ajn.

    If they’ve incurred a quantifyable loss, yes. Otherwise, no.

    Not necessary to quantify all losses as stated already and some cannot be. Not going to repeat myself again.

    fwippers, you asked if they should have recourse. I said they should.  To say: Oh I’ve lost something but I can’t say what it is and I want money because the car maker did wrong, is just greedy opportunism in my book.

    Tinted glass, you say. It’s already been done hasn’t it?

    The Red Arrows are taking off from Bournemouth in half an hour for a Wembley flypast. I say this having no interest in wendyball, but because I will be able to watch them leave through my bedroom window.

    I am glad Citroen allegedly cheated on emissions as per these claims, if so, its brilliant don’t you think?

    I got to pay lower car tax and had better fuel consumption over the 160,000 miles I did in my 2007-2018 cars. No complaints from me and I’m certainly not “outraged”, feeling quite happy about the whole thing really. Like over 90% of diesel owners I bought one because the mpg was great, saving me loads of money, emissions or lack thereof paid no part in my decision (although it was nice to only pay £30 VED).
