(FOX News) - Volkswagen is set to offer owners of it diesel-powered cars a “goodwill” package worth $1,000, according to several sources, as it continues to develop a solution to fix the vehicles, which were discovered to include software that allows them to cheat on EPA emission tests.
One dealer, who asked to remain anonymous, revealed the plan to the Associated Press. It is expected to be officially announced sometime on Monday.
Automotive website The Truth About Cars has also discovered registration forms for the program online that indicate it will include two $500 gift cards, one that can be used anywhere and one that is valid at VW dealerships, along with three years of free roadside assistance.
The terms and conditions of participating in the program have not yet been revealed.
