Karlsruhe (Reuters) - after the judgment against Volkswagen in terms of compensation for manipulated diesel engines before the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) At the end of May, the court drew further limits for possible claims.
In the hearing on another case, the BGH showed on Tuesday that diesel car buyers can have little hope of being compensated for immoral damage if they bought their car after the diesel scandal became known. Judge Stephan Seiters referred to VW's ad hoc announcement of September 22, 2015 on the stock exchange, in which the Wolfsburg-based car company had admitted the manipulation of exhaust gas values.

At the time, the newspapers were full of reports of the diesel manipulation that had only become known by the US environmental authorities a few days earlier. "The exhaust gas scandal was dominant for months," said Seiters. VW customers could also have clarified via an established website whether their vehicle was affected. The case before the BGH involves the purchase of a used VW Touran Match eleven months after "Dieselgate" became known. The verdict will be announced at a later date.
On May 25, the BGH Senate issued a basic judgment that Volkswagen is generally liable to pay compensation for the Group's diesel vehicles that manipulate the exhaust gas cleaning system using a shutdown device. The damage was also not remedied by a software update that VW installs free of charge. However, the BGH also decided that the kilometers traveled in the meantime should be deducted from the damage and thus limited the amount of damage for the group. Before the manipulation became known, the placing of the engines on the market was to be considered immoral, the civil senate said in May.
