Our van hire fleet includes some WV commercial vehicles, and there seems to be confusion over what exactly the recent emissions scandal actually means. So, we thought it would be a good idea to share some information about which of our hire vehicles are affected and which are not.
Our VW Crafters and VW Transporters are not affected at all by the recent emissions revelations, however the VW Caddy Maxi Life is affected.
The VW Caddy Maxi Life is a seven seater diesel MPV, generally hired for family weekends and holidays. The good news is, that as the hirer you have nothing to worry about, the car is perfectly safe, the only implication being that fuel economy might not be exactly as stated in the manufacturers original sales data.
We don’t yet have full details yet but it looks like UK cars will need to have an update to the management software, which will be carried out as soon as the update process is put in place by Volkswagen.
