REUTERS: Dutch vehicle authorities said this week that carmakers Suzuki and Fiat Chrysler were being referred to the public prosecutor for possibly misusing emissions software.
The Netherlands Vehicle Authority (RDW) revealed its findings in its second report since the so-called Dieselgate scandal erupted two years ago.
Volkswagen admitted in September 2015 that it had installed software devices in 11 million diesel-engine cars worldwide that reduced emissions of harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) when the devices detected the vehicle was undergoing tests.
The RDW said in its report on Monday that it had found Suzuki’s Vitara and Chrysler’s Jeep Grand Cherokee “had higher NOx emissions than could be justified”.
The authority had re-tested 16 vehicle types whose emission control systems had shown possible discrepancies.
Further tests on 14 cars had concluded that the “reduced performance of the emission control system was permissible to protect the engine”. But in the case of the remaining two vehicles, the Suzuki and the Jeep, “it was not plausible that the reduced efficiency of the emissions control system was in order to protect the engine” and “further research” was needed.
