Once one of the most trusted brands in the motoring world VW’s fall from grace has been spectacular. The company has admitted conning hundreds of thousands of its customers worldwide by installing cheat software to produce false exhaust emission readings. The company is now facing legal action across the globe from customers who were duped into buying cars they thought were more environmentally efficient than they actually are. Thompsons Solicitors are Scotland’s largest law firm specialising in mass litigation law suits. In this interview with Scotland’s leading broadsheet newspaper, The Herald, Patrick McGuire, the partner in charge of mass litigation, explains why so many angry motorists have contacted him and how the legal action will proceed.
