Volkswagen has been in the news recently due to the emission test rigging in the US and now it looks like the car giant will recall 11 million vehicles in the US.
The company will start to contact customers within the next few days and it will be refitting their vehicles that contain the illegal software that was used to cheat the emissions tests.
The recall of 11 million vehicles includes cars from Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda and it is expected to cost VW around $6.5 billion to fix the issue.
VW recently appointed Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller as their new CEO, the company also owns Porsche and Lamborghini but the emissions cheat is not thought to have affected these vehicles.
This will be one of the biggest vehicle recalls ever and it has set aside $7.3 billion to fix the issue, this may not be enough as the company may have fines from regulators and is also facing a number of lawsuits.
