What is the Renault diesel claim?

If you’re a Renault owner affected by the diesel emissions scandal, you may have suffered various financial losses, including:

Depreciation of vehicle value

Due to the negative publicity surrounding the emissions scandal, Renault diesel vehicles’ resale value has plummeted. This depreciation directly affects the financial position of Renault owners.

Increased fuel consumption

The ‘defeat devices’ used by Renault may have impacted the fuel efficiency of the affected vehicles. Higher fuel consumption results in increased expenditure for owners, leading to additional financial burdens.

Cost of repairs and modifications

To rectify the emissions issues, Renault owners may have incurred expenses for repairs and modifications to their vehicles. These costs can quickly add up, causing financial strain.

Loss of trust and confidence

Renault owners trusted the company’s claims of producing environmentally friendly vehicles. The breach of this trust has not only caused financial harm but also emotional distress for owners who believed they were making an eco-conscious choice.

What harm has been suffered by Renault owners?

Apart from the financial losses, Renault owners have also experienced various forms of harm as a result of the diesel emissions scandal, including:

Environmental impact

The whole purpose of purchasing a diesel vehicle is often to contribute to a cleaner environment. However, the emissions manipulation has undermined the efforts of Renault owners to make an eco-friendly choice, causing harm to the environment.

Health concerns

Diesel emissions contain harmful pollutants, such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), which have been linked to respiratory issues and other health problems. Renault owners may have unknowingly exposed themselves and their families to increased health risks due to the higher emissions from their vehicles.

Inconvenience and time

Dealing with the fallout of the diesel emissions scandal, such as repairs, modifications, and legal procedures, can be incredibly time-consuming and inconvenient for Renault owners. This additional burden can negatively impact their personal and professional lives.
