EA 189 Campaign Update

Volkswagen Group Ireland announces action plan to modify diesel vehicles with EA 189 EU5 engines

Volkswagen Group Ireland is announcing its action plan to correct the emissions characteristics of certain diesel vehicles.

In the coming days, the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) details of affected cars will be released to Retailers. In addition, a self-serve process for customers to check if their vehicle is affected will be set up.

Step by step, affected customers will be contacted, with details of a process to get their vehicles corrected in the near future. In the meantime, all vehicles are technically safe and roadworthy.

Under the action plan, the Volkswagen Group brands whose vehicles are affected will present the technical solutions and measures to relevant responsible authorities in October.

Customers with these vehicles will be kept informed over the coming weeks and months. All of the Group brands affected will set up national websites to update customers on developments.

The specific number of SEAT vehicles affected in Ireland is around 4,365.
The numbers include vehicles sold via our authorised dealer network in Ireland. The number of affected used vehicles imported is still under clarification.

Volkswagen Group Ireland is committed to supporting all its customers and its retailers through the coming weeks and months.
