Almost 300000 VW diesels are sitting in lots across the US

Top 6 additions on the VW Vento Sport

Reacquired Volkswagen and Audi diesel cars sit in a desert graveyard near Victorville, Calif. on March 28.

Most of the affected cars are being held at 37 secure storage facilities around the US.

It would seem, according to Reuters, that VW has the cars they've bought back stored in 37 facilities across the States in unlikely places from a dis-used football stadium in Detroit to a former paper mill in Minnesota.

"These vehicles are being stored on an interim basis and routinely maintained in a manner to ensure their long-term operability and quality, so that they may be returned to commerce or exported once US regulators approve appropriate emissions modifications", Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan said.

They also called upon the Taliban to "accept this offer for a peace process that is Afghan-led and Afghan-owned". The head of state noted that security of Afghanistan is equal to security of Uzbekistan.

Volkswagen has spent around £5 billion to buy back some 350,000 diesel-engined cars in the USA after the Dieselgate scandal. Not only are the diesel auto being stored, but they're also being maintained to make sure they remain a viable asset. Once the USA regulators approve appropriate emissions modifications, these cars may be returned to commerce or exported.

Skoda - a part of the Volkswagen Group has announced a similar buyback offer valid on cars purchased between April 1 2018 and the end of June 2018 and will cover bans introduced within 4 years from the date of purchase.

A recent court filing revealed that Volkswagen had resold 13,000 and destroyed about 28,000 vehicles by the end of 2017, but still had 294,000 vehicles in storage at that time. As of the end of previous year, VW was storing 294,000 vehicles around the country. That follows the scandal in 2015 in which Volkswagen rigged its diesel cars to cheat on USA emissions tests.

The company said in February it has repaired or fixed almost 83 percent of covered vehicles and expects to soon hit the requirement.
