Surname 1 Student’s Name: Professor’s Name: Course: Date: Volkswagen Emission Scandal in 2015 Volkswagen (VW) has operated for over 80 years serving customers in the automotive industry. It is located in German, and mainly manufactures motor vehicle. In 2015, the company was in a major emission scandal. The American government found out that VW was cheating on American pollution tests. It was aware that the emissions were harmful and thus it decided to use a sophisticated software so that pollution tests could not identify any hazard. However, the US knew about the trick, and this prompted the government to make allegations under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This was after independent researchers raised questions about emissions levels, prompting government agencies to investigate the matter further ( Bachmann, Ehrlich, and Ruzic 37 ). Afterward, VW admitted that their cars contained defeat software devices, which made it possible for the emissions to pass on American air pollution tests.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
