VW Defeat Devices Pose Great Liability

Das Auto may be in a world of financial hurt
The need for profits running berserk
Diesels leave a huge carbon footprint in the air
Causing air quality regulators much despair
VW with typical German engineering touted that its diesels ran clean
Now we learn that each auto may be a rolling crime scene
11 million diesel cars sold worldwide have stealth software
To the amount of pollution actually produced the accuracy of the results impair
Have the emission amounts actually subject to an emission test
The car passes and when back on the road the emissions the car no longer arrests
500,000 cars sold in the U.S. sold with this device which could mean up to 18 billion in fines
Not to mention assuming jurisdiction for VW executives potential jail time
Unlike GM trying to save a few cents
VW’s action would enable sales and the emission rules bent
Once caught, money is being reserved for fines and costs of recall
Probably more needed as sales should completely stall
Pity the buyer who has paid for the car a pretty hefty price
Only to see the resale value fall to next to nothing due to the defeat device
Hard to believe but this scandal could become worse
News that German lawmakers may have known of this deception curse
Americans love their cars and this scandal will not them please
May be a long time before Americans will be shopping for another set of VW keys
