Volkswagen is to provide a two year guarantee for the cars in Europe fitted with emissions cheating devices which it agreed to modify.

A number of UK consumers have complained that the modifications have affected performance and reliability.

The two year guarantee will cover exhaust and emissions control parts.

The European Commission has been putting pressure on VW to compensate customers over its emissions scandal, but the company has refused.

And European class action lawsuits are picking up steam.

In the US, it is being forced to pay out billions of dollars to buy back affected vehicles and provide compensation. But owners in Europe haven't received a penny, because the company believes that the value of their cars hasn't been affected.

In Australia
