Diesel-Gate Delays Mercedes Diesel models


New Diesel Benz Models Delayed

Due to the huge scandal involving Volkswagen cheating regulations for emissions, Mercedes Benz Diesel models will be delayed by a year before finally hitting the market sometimes in the middle of next year. It’s not just bad news for these two manufacturers, but for all of Europe’s auto manufacturers.

Volkswagen slipping their diesels past emissions testing has been a hard hit for themselves as well as their peers. The good news is that because of this scandal, the consumer eventually wins in the end as we will be brought better standards for our wait.

As we will all be waiting for a while, click here and check into affordable new Mercedes Benz diesel fuel system parts.


Dieselgate was Volkswagen’s mess, but that mess has spread to other automakers. Thanks to the resulting industry scrutiny, Mercedes-Benz has to delay the arrival of its C-Class diesel and other oil-burning luxury vehicles. What was supposed to arrive this year will now be here next year…hopefully.

While it should have landed at dealerships in the first quarter of this year, the Mercedes-Benz C300d will eventually make its way to the showroom sometime in 2017, Automotive News reports. The diesel variant of its new GLC-Class crossover will also be delayed.

There’s no firm release date for either. Mercedes-Benz didn’t immediately reply to our request for comment, but it did tell Automotive News that the C300d won’t show up until around mid-year, but that’s only an estimate. Currently, it’s selling just one diesel model — the GLE300d, formerly known as the M-Class. Continue Reading

Volkswagen to Pay Over $15 Billion in Settlement

When Volkswagen decided to put software in its vehicles that allowed them to burn ridiculous amounts of fuel, I’m guessing they weren’t expecting to eventually have a $15.4-billion settlement slapped on them. Likewise, they are currently in talks with 44 states in the US, which should end up in VW having to pay out at least another estimated $600-million. The amount that Volkswagen ends up really paying in the end is anyone’s guess, though, seeing as so much of that $15b is set aside for buybacks and repairs, of which repairs are far less expensive for the company.


German automaker Volkswagen AG has agreed to pay more than $15.3 billion in a settlement with U.S. regulators over pollution caused by its diesel vehicles, according to a source briefed on the matter.

The settlement stems from VW’s admission in September that it intentionally misled regulators by installing secret software that allowed U.S. vehicles to emit up to 40 times legally allowable pollution. It covers 475,000 2.0-liter vehicles.

The Justice Department filed a proposed consent decree that confirms VW will set aside $10.033 billion to cover buybacks and fixes, $2 billion to invest in green energy funds and $2.7 billion to offset diesel emissions.

Volkswagen to Pay Billions in Deal with Feds

volkswagen-logo-vanVolkswagen and the federal government have made a deal that will see Volkswagen pay more than $10 billion because of the emissions fraud committed by the car manufacturer discovered last year. With the money being used to buyback customers’ cars, we recommend getting a Mercedes Benz and find yourself worrying much less about exhaust and fuel issues.


Volkswagen has struck a deal with the US government over the diesel-emissions-cheating scandal that has plagued the car maker.

Under the terms of the agreement, Volkswagen would include ‘substantial compensation’ to owners of VW’s diesel vehicles, and would establish an environmental compensation fund.

U.S. Judge Charles Breyer said the settlement is expected to include a buyback offer for nearly 500,000 2.0-liter vehicles and a possible fix if regulators agree on it. The settlement will include an environmental remediation fund and additional compensation to owners to sell back or have vehicles fixed. Continue Reading
