HOUSTON & LONGVIEW, Texas

Millions of Volkswagen clean diesel cars are being recalled in the United States and other countries following the breaking of the “Volkswagen Emissions Scandal” that was uncovered recently through a criminal investigation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Volkswagen owners based in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas who are affected by this recall can seek legal counsel from seasoned product liability attorneys practicing at Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry Law Firm.

The following vehicle models are included in the Volkswagen emissions recall:

o Volkswagen Jetta, 2009 – 2015

o Volkswagen Beetle, 2009 – 2015

o Volkswagen Golf, 2009 – 2015

o Volkswagen Passat, 2014 – 2015

o Audi A3, 2009 – 2015

Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry is one of the U.S. law firms investigating possible legal claims against Volkswagen. The firm created and launched a dedicated campaign and Web site www.volkswagenemissionsscandal.com to support Volkswagen car owners needing to understand their legal rights and seeking assistance in taking legal action. The Sloan Firm’s legal team is speaking with VW owners, finding out how the emissions cheating scandal has affected them, and determining the best way to address their grievances with the automaker.

“The Sloan Law Firm is well-equipped to address the problems that this emissions scandal has caused,” commented John Sloan, founding partner of Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry Law Firm. The firm has offices in Longview and Houston, Texas. “Approximately 500,000 Volkswagen cars in the U.S. were found to be in violation of the Clean Air Act. Consumers paid higher costs for ‘clean diesel’ vehicles that were promoted as offering excellent mileage and low pollutants.”

Volkswagen, the world’s second-largest automaker, has admitted that it used software to cheat on emissions testing for 11 million diesel vehicles worldwide, including nearly 500,000 “clean diesel” cars sold in the United States.

The admission has opened the door to significant Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fines as well as consumer lawsuits seeking compensation for losses that include diminished vehicle resale value. To date, dozens of U.S. lawsuits have been filed against Volkswagen Group of America on behalf of defrauded Volkswagen owners.
