EPA Approves Long-Awaited Fix for VW Diesel Cars


U.S. regulators have approved repairs for Volkswagen Group diesel cars that were engulfed in a scandal over excess emissions, meaning that owners eligible for buybacks can instead choose to accept a fix and cash compensation.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency authorized the fix to VW's 2-liter engine diesel cars from 2009 through 2014, including the Jetta, Jetta SportWagen, Golf, Beetle, Beetle Convertible and Audi A3.
