  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Volkswagen Close to Emissions Fix for Diesel 3.0-liter V-6

Owners of Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche diesels may soon be offered a fix for their cars via a software update.

At the moment, Volkswagen has no plans to buy back the roughly 85,000 cars with the larger 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6, unlike what it reportedly will do for vehicles with 2.0-liter turbodiesel four-cylinders. Instead, states Automotive News, a software update will remedy the “auxiliary emission-control devices” that allow excessive emissions during a cold start. A new catalytic converter may also be installed. (See the full list of affected vehicles here.)

Despite the Environmental Protection Agency citing VW with a second violation for these vehicles in November, just weeks after initially citing the company for 482,000 cars with 2.0-liter engines, VW has continually denied that there was a deliberate defect with the larger engines. The company said in November that “that no software has been installed in the 3.0-liter V-6 diesel power units to alter emissions characteristics in a forbidden manner.” The EPA and VW have not reached a final agreement or an exact fix for any of the half-million-plus cars under scrutiny.
