Why could I be owed compensation?

We believe owners of vehicles affected by the diesel emissions scandal should be entitled to compensation as it is suspected:
1. The performance of your vehicle may have reduced.
If the vehicle had to be fixed, or is due to be fixed, the performance of this vehicle will likely have been significantly reduced.
2. The resale value is significantly less.
After widespread knowledge of the scandal, and the affected vehicles has become better know, the value of affected vehicles has decreased.
3. Not as advertised.
The vehicles emission levels as advertised were not representative of the level of pollution the vehicle emitted while on the roads.

What happened to my car?

From 2009 onwards, software which manipulated air pollution tests was discovered in vehicles from some car makers; the software recognized when the standardized emissions test was being done, and adjusted the engine to emit less during the test. The cars emitted much higher levels of pollution under real-world driving conditions.

Diesel vehicles including the Volvo S60, Renault's Espace Energy and the Jeep Renegade, exceeded legal European emission limits for nitrogen oxide (NOx) by more than 10 times.
Affected manufacturers include:
Fiat, Volvo, Peugeot, Citroen, Renault, Nissan, Jaguar, Land Rover, Vauxhall

Patricia Clements  ★★★★★

A firm I would recommend. My solicitor was informative, realistic and always courteous. He listened and offered options which were available to me. He also worked closely with 3rd parties in my best interest. I would also like to say that the staff feom the credit control department are also a pleasure to deal with. Always very professional.

My experience with Jones whyte, specially Karyn Mcalpine has been great, Karyn is very good to work with, very understanding and also honest with how she works and the up keep of the claim is which would make me feel comfortable moving foward with my claim. Also she is very much determined to help as I didn’t not need to call or chase up my claim once Karyn was always an email or a phone call ahead which was very comforting knowing I wasn’t forgotten about so that was very much appreciated knowing I was in such good hands. Would highly recommend the company ( Karyn ) to others no offence to other members off staff but Karyn would be highly recommended. Again thanks for everything Karyn been a pleasure to have you dealing with my claim thanks.
