Default US discovers secret software in VW

Volkswagen’s diesel scandal could deepn as it appears Hitler’s favourite car maker has three hidden software programs in its 3.0-litre engines.

Concerns about the German car manufacturers’ 2.0-litre engines could soon be sorted, but the discovery of the hidden software has thrown the future of 3.0-litre diesels into uncertainty.

That secret software in Volkswagen’s 3.0-litre diesels can turn off the vehicles’ emissions controls. The emissions control system allegedly shuts off after 22 minutes, when most emissions tests take about 20.

If this software exists, then it will be under the bonnet of all 3.0-litre diesels that Volkswagen sells in the US. This includes the Audi Q7, Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayenne SUVs. Approximately 85,000 of these cars are roaming around the US, and they’re already under scrutiny for some software that VW “forgot” to tell regulators about.
