VW should not have cheated - NOT amateur radio

Assuming the reports in the media that VW cheated in emissions tests are correct, all I can say is they must be stupid and they should have known better. If the reports are correct, this is a scandal and is unforgivable. VW should be banned in the USA for this unethical behaviour. Heads will roll, but at a corporate level they should not have cheated. Bad, bad, bad on their part. Almost unbelievable from VW.

Certainly not a clever move.. they must have been desperate. Their brand is now soiled and the Indians/Chinese can maybe mop up. They would do well to declare bankruptcy and re-start again with a suitably swanky name... I'm sure the VW marketing people are already thinking of this... something like kenwood ??
I also think this is not the last of what we will hear.. It was well known for a long time that many car manufacturers stripped cars right down (including removing seats and wing mirrors etc) to achieve better performance figures during performance test runs... We'll see if this also counts as cheating. Hugh G6AIG

They cheated, were found out, and now must face the full consequences.
