Lets just say if VAG made it. It's most likely cheating.
I don't think there will be any impact on road tax in the UK. If I understand this years Budget correctly almost all cars will be £140 a year from next year.
Just announced on the news. (U.S.)
90,000 VW vehicles are being recalled
due to a possible mechanical brake failure that can knock out the power assisted brakes. 2015-2016.
I had read that this latest one affected CO2 - is that not yet confirmed? I would imagine that it could affect tax if it is a CO2 issue, but difficult to say really - maybe the government will make VW pay the difference in everyone's tax instead?
All manufacturers have had to make more accurate CO2 limits that take account of wheel size now.Just spotted on the Audi website some tweaks to the co2 limits for various engines such as the 2.0tdi 184ps. When I bought mine 2 years ago it was listed as 110g/km (£20/year). Now it's crept up to 112g/km (£30/year). Not much I grant you, but if you were in the £30 category and then get bumped to the £110 that would be noticeable!
According to that list, both the manual and DSG Golf R models are affected..Latest VAG list of CO2 affected cars.
There is a download link down at the bottom.
Am I mistaken, or is the current Golf R in there?
Just checked some online tables and the DSG versions from both manufacturers are listed as 159 g/km which is what I have on my V5 document. Cant find the manual details for the Golf R.That's what I thought.
I wonder why the Golf R is on the list and not the S3?
I thought the emissions and CO2 were similar?......but I may be wrong.
