Judge Delays Court Hearing For VW’s 3.0-Liter Diesel

A court hearing to discuss Volkswagen’s plans to fix its 3.0-liter diesel V6 vehicles in the United States has been delayed by District Judge Charles Breyer.

The hearing was initially pencilled in for November 30, but has been pushed back to December 15. According to Breyer, this is because the German company is still negotiating with regulators and the lawyers representing vehicle owners. According to Automotive News, these negotiations could “produce a resolution of the outstanding issues.”

Approximately 80,000 affected V6 models reside in the United States and, earlier this month, Volkswagen Group reached an agreement with regulators for a fix and buybacks of affected models.

It is reported that a buyback is being offered for around 20,000 Audi and VW-branded SUVs, while a software fix for newer Porsche, Audi and VW models will be available to owners. Although these agreements have been made with local regulators, VW still needs to iron out the details relating to owner compensation.
