In opening I will say that I am the owner of a '12 VW Jetta TDI.

To me the issue isn't the NOx emission levels. Its the fact that VW had 
(has) a corporate culture that would condone this sort of thing. What 
other systems have been compromised? Is there an Easter egg in the 
stability control system? Airbags? This really is the issue.

"Mueller said 'according to current information, a few developers 
interfered in the engine management.' He said he doesn't think the 
management board made the decision to use the manipulated software."
