We don't know how the company will do that, whether it's going to be something mechanical or whether it will be a software-based patch. Regulators are going to be busy with Volkswagen when it happens, to make sure that the solution is absolutely 100%. Volkswagen is ready to spend $7.3 billion cleaning up the massive problem, but things are just continuing to get worse, with the likes of BMW and Mercedes now caught up in it.
