作为我们日常出行最重要的交通工具之一,汽车已经渐渐占领了城市的道路。愈发频繁的交通事故和严重的尾气污染渐渐引起了人们的重视。随着汽车行业的不断成熟,每一辆汽车在出厂时都需要经过严格靠谱的标准检测,以保证车辆的质量,最大限度降低汽车潜在危害。但是有些不良企业却从中作梗,把检测环节变成了从中投机、欺骗消费者的手段。

Consumers are suing General Motors for allegedly rigging the emissions controls in Duramax diesel trucks in order to pass emissions tests, while in real-world conditions the trucks emit 2 to 5 times the legal limits of deadly NOx pollutants, according to Hagens Berman.

聚师网译:据记者哈根斯伯曼称,消费者起诉某汽车涉嫌操纵Duramax柴油卡车的排放测试。而在现实情况下,这些卡车的排放量是测试所允许的致命氮氧化物污染物排放量的2至5倍。

The lawsuit states that GM did so all to increase the vehicles’ power and efficiency, and thus the appeal of its best-selling pick-up trucks. The complaint identifies and describes three distinct “defeat devices,” which turn down or “de-rate” the emissions controls in place compared to when the vehicles are in a testing environment.

The complaint, filed on May 25, 2017, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (Detroit) states that roughly 705,000 Silverado and Sierra diesels are on the road. It alleges: “Increased sales and thus increased profits drove GM to use at least these three defeat devices in its Duramax diesel engines.This made GM’s trucks more appealing and competitive in the marketplace, driving up sales and profits.”

“GM sold its Duramax line as a powerful diesel that magically emitted lesser amounts of harmful NOx pollutants,” Berman said. “But as our firm’s testing revealed, GM could not accomplish what it promised consumers. Instead, it used complex devices to mask its vehicles’ output of emissions, cheating emissions test, cheating purchasers, and putting all of us at risk of increased respiratory illness.”

聚师网点评:不良企业在欺骗消费者,隐瞒产品问题等方面使用的手段越来越复杂并令消费者难以察觉。在利润的驱动下,许多不良企业选择了铤而走险,让市场文化渐渐变得腐败。作为一家新型互联网的教育教育产业中的一员,聚师网深知市场文化对于整个市场经济的发展有着深远的意义。聚师网将致力于发展并传播自己优秀的企业文化,为整个行业的发展做出自己的贡献。
