Expensive
It seems as though VW is going to have to pay a lot of money for this deception. As I understand it, the company was promising low emissions yet high efficiency for its diesel vehicles. The fact that the deception was across so many models and brands is pretty sigificant, and it appears that the company is now going to have to pay a pretty penny.
