    As the Diesel Emits: Federal Judge Reports 'Substantial Progress' Being Made On 3.0L TDI Talks

      Progress is being made on reaching an agreement for the 3.0L TDI V6

    Volkswagen has cleared one hurdle in the form of the 2.0L TDI talks. Now it is working trying to clear the hurdle that is the 3.0L TDI V6.

    Yesterday in U.S. Federal Court in San Fransisco, Judge Charles Breyer got on update on the talks over the 3.0L TDI V6. Breyer said at the hearing that "substantial progress" is being made between Volkswagen and the U.S. Government. People briefed on the talks tell Reuters that Volkswagen might agree on buying back at least 21,000 older Audi Q7 and Volkswagen Touraeg models and repair the remaining vehicles, but only if regulators agree on the proposed fix. 

    A number of other issues are still undecided such as how much Volkswagen is willing to compensate owners of vehicles equipped with the 3.0L TDI V6. 

    Breyer set a deadline for December 1st for an update on the talks.
