Defeat device cases - vehicles affected under U.S. Clean Air Act 2016

This statistic represents the number of defeat device cases under Title II of the U.S. Clean Air Act as of February 2016, ranked by the number of affected vehicles/equipment. In light of the Volkswagen diesel scandal, at least 584,000 diesel vehicles violated the Clean Air Act. VW is a repeat offender: the company had to pay a 120,000 U.S. dollar fine in 1974. In 1998, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Justice Department settled a case with Honda Motor Co. after it emerged that the Japanese carmaker had been selling vehicles with disabled misfire monitoring devices under its American Honda brand.
