Has VW Emissions RECALL Left Your Car UNDRIVEABLE

Did Volkswagen Mislead Owners into Believing the Emissions Recall was Compulsory?

Over 1m vehicles under the VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat brand are affected by the most significant vehicle recall in history, often referred to as the VW emissions Scandal.

A considerable number of owners are complaining their cars are performing poorly or erratically after the manufacturer recall has been performed.

VW Emissions RECALL Leaves Thousands of Cars UNDRIVEABLE according to owners

One Way Street

Unfortunately, the dealers for these brands are required to carry out the recall procedure but cannot then reverse it, so many customers are left with poorly performing cars.

In some cases, owners have even Declared their cars as Undrivable due to the issues that appear after the recall.

Despite the high number of owners expressing their dissatisfaction online, it appears that service staff are “At Best” playing down the situation and assuring people with issues, that they are in the minority.

Having worked in a main dealer service department myself, I know from first-hand experience that common faults are often dismissed as one-off issues, with customers being deliberately mislead.

Volkswagen says the number of affected drivers is minimal, although reports of problems on some websites are growing and drivers affected, argue that it can’t just be a coincidence.

Many owners say their cars were working perfectly before the recall, with others saying that they had experienced breakdowns soon after their visit to the dealer.

Some drivers have been faced with significant repairs bills and are furious at their treatment.


YES, technically it is possible to REVERSE the recall, however dealers are not able or willing to offer the solution to unhappy customers.

I suspect that they are not allowed to, but to customers who feel they have been left high and dry that is no consolation.


Due to the high volume of requests were receiving on this subject, we decided to investigate the Recall and find a solution to the problem faced by so many owners.


We have invested heavily in high tech equipment that enables us to reverse the manufacturer software recall and return your vehicle to its former self. These are some of the issues reported by VAG Group Owners • Poor fuel consumption • Starting problems • Reduced power • Poor acceleration • EGR issues • DPF issues


At the time of writing this article approx. 50% of the 1.2m vehicles affected in the VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda diesel ranges, have been returned as part of the official dealer recall. Recall Rejection With a growing number of owners complaining of serious problems, since the recall, many others are questioning if they want to take the risk and have the recall done.


The Department for Transport have confirmed that the emissions recall is entirely voluntary, and there are no personal reoccupations for not having the work done.

Choosing a Good Tuner is as important as choosing a Good Doctor.

You will be presented with a bewildering selection of companies, all claiming to be the best in the industry. Unfortunately the industry has been flooded with “Get Rich Quick” merchants all desperate to take your money from you. In many cases the “Get Rich Quick” operators have invested in “Cloned” counterfeit remapping tools off the internet. They have little “if any” industry knowledge, experience or liability insurance…

Don’t get sucked in by a good story and what appears to be an incredible price. Instead of taking the word of self-acclaimed tuning experts, a search on google will reveal some very interesting, yet disturbing facts about a few “so called” professionals. Unlike some testimonials “Bert for Bognor says we are Brill” our customers are real people. Don’t take our word for it, ask the people that know best “Our Customers”

I went for a remap on my T5 as it had an awful flat spot around 2800 rev's I got great personal service and its like having a new engine in the van smooth power and greater economy.... Highly recommended wish I'd done it months ago it would have paid for it self already thanks a lot hills are no longer a drag.

Popped in to see Mike on Friday to have my A4 2.0TDi 170hp remapped. Have to say I was a little pessimistic at first having being told by another firm that remaps on these were a nightmare so was expecting the worst! Thankfully, nothing of the sort, straight in, one error message unknown but Mike worked it out and all done in no time. Straight out for a test run and the drive is very different, certainly mid ranged (where these engines seem to suffer) pulls away nicely and can definitely feel the benefit. Best money I've ever spent on a car in, well, forever! Thanks again Mike

Took my Civic Mk VIII 2.2 CDTI to Mike following a recommendation from a friend who's had his last few cars remapped at MPG., professional service and answered any questions I had. Customised remap that gave me a good balance between performance and economy. Mike was happy to let me watch the whole procedure and explained what he was doing. Makes a good brew as well! Would highly recommend, Will definitely bring my future motors here.
