Volkswagen was ordered to recall nearly 500,000 of its cars today after the EPA discovered that the German automaker was using software created to evade emissions testing. According to the EPA, the company has been breaking the law by using a device that can detect when a vehicle is being tested for emissions. The device turns on full emissions control systems only during the testing, giving what is essentially a false reading, which is not only illegal, but it seems awfully hypocritical for a company who likes to tout its commitment to the environment.
