HARRISBURG, Pa. (Sept. 25, 2015) — Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane announced Sept. 24 that the state's Attorney General's Bureau of Consumer Protection would join 28 other Attorneys General in investigating Volkswagen A.G. over its diesel vehicles.
Ms. Kane said she instructed the bureau to immediately open an investigation concerning reports that VW diesel vehicles were equipped with software devices allowing them to cheat emissions tests.
“Volkswagen's misguided effort to manipulate pollution data to boost sales and mislead consumers is disturbing,” Ms. Kane said. “We look forward to working with other attorneys general across the nation to get to the bottom of this problem.”
The AG's office said any consumers who believe they were harmed by Volkswagen are encouraged to file a complaint with the Attorney General's Bureau of Consumer Protection at 1-800-441-2555 or go to the Pennsylvania Attorney General's website.
