VW can take a deep breath for now. The Bochum district court sees a defect in VW's software manipulation, but no obligation for a buyback.
The software manipulations in the VW exhaust scandal do not justify any obligation on the manufacturer or dealer to take back the cars sold, according to the Bochum Regional Court. Judge Ingo Streek said on Wednesday at the start of a civil case, there is clearly a deficiency.
However, this deficiency is not significant in the legal sense because it can be remedied with relatively little effort. Reversal of the purchase is only required in the event of significant defects.
First trial nationwide
The Bochum process is probably the first nationwide process in which a private VW driver has made claims in court because of the emissions affair. A regular customer of a car dealership in the Ruhr area town had sued to take back his VW Tiguan, which was almost a year old and cost around 38,000 euros, because the car emits significantly more pollutants than the manufacturer stated. In the specific case, there has not yet been a decision.
The lawyer for the VW dealershipoffered in court "of his own free will" to take back the car at a "market price" - in exchange for the purchase of a new vehicle. This should be negotiated between the parties in the next few days. In the event that there is no amicable settlement, the district court set a promulgation date for the decision in 14 days. (dpa)
