VW Diesel Crisis Now Includes Brazil's Amarok Pickup


The Brazilian environmental protection agency, Ibana, recently announced that more than 17,000 model-year 2011 and 2012 Volkswagen Amarok pickup trucks with an optional turbo-diesel 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will be recalled because they include software allowing them to temporarily reduce toxic emissions during testing.

According to Reuters, VW will begin notifying customers during the first quarter of 2016 when a software fix could be made available.
