AJAX, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 22, 2015) - Volkswagen Canada has implemented a "stop sale order" on all vehicles affected by the recent US EPA Notice of Violation.

As a result, dealers will refrain from the sale and delivery of any new Golf, Golf Sportwagon, Jetta, Beetle and Passat model equipped with a 2.0 TDI (Diesel) engine until further notice. Also within the stop sale order are Certified pre-owned vehicles from model year 2009 onwards, when equipped with the same engine.

Volkswagen Canada is working with representatives from Volkswagen of America, as well as our parent company in Germany to seek a resolution to the issues brought forth in the EPA notice.

We are implementing numerous temporary measures to limit customer inconvenience and facilitate a clear and timely flow of information.
