EPA Approves Fix for 2012-2014 VW Passat Diesels

May 19, 2017:  The EPA announced it approved VW’s fix for about 84,390 diesel vehicles.  Repairs cover Passat TDIs (model years 2012-2014) with automatic transmissions.  A solution for manual transmission Passats has not been approved.

Passat TDIs, unlike most Jetta, Golf and Beetle diesels, rely on emissions systems that utilize urea injection or a selective catalytic reduction system to reduce the formation of nitrogen oxides (NOx).

Cars equipped with SCR are considered better candidates for diesel emission fixes than those without it.  The previously announced 2015 model-year TDI fix covers vehicles with a newly developed engine with SCR for all VW cars.
