AG: 6,600 Indiana residents eligible for VW compensation

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller (ZEHL’-ur) says an estimated 6,600 Volkswagen customers in Indiana will be eligible for monetary compensation and the option to have their vehicles bought back or modified to reduce emissions after the automaker settled allegations of emissions fraud.

He said Tuesday that total restitution to Indiana customers could reach $66 million under a joint state-federal agreement with Volkswagen.

Models covered by the settlement include the 2009-2015 Jetta and Audi A3, the 2010-2015 Golf, and the 2012-2015 Beetle and Passat, all with 2-liter diesel engines.

The agreement also requires Volkswagen to pay nearly $570 million for violating state laws prohibiting unfair or deceptive trade practices when it marketed, sold and leased diesel vehicles equipped with software intended to circumvent air pollution emissions standards.
