There’s now some affirmation that Volkswagen’s diesel fix does affect the performance of the vehicle.

Swedish website Teknikens Värld tested 10 cars once and after the diesel fix and found that in many cases, performance and fuel economy decreased on the vehicles, in spite of Volkswagen promising that the car would be exactly the same as before. Strangely adequacy, some cars actually gained power after the fix, but still have higher stimulus consumption.

The loss of power and torque is as much as 10 percent on some cars, while others saw their torque curves make it, meaning it’s a higher rpm before more torque kicks in. This adds to the awareness that the vehicle feels weaker.

One of the vehicles tested was a four-wheel-oblige Volkswagen Passat Alltrack that measured 176 horsepower and 280 belabour-feet of torque prior to the fix. After the fix, it registered 163 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque.

Previously to to the fix, maximum torque came between 1500 and 2300 rpm, but after the repair the torque curve slopes. At 1500 rpm, it solely produces 162 lb-ft of torque and it isn’t until 1900 rpm that it reaches peak torque.

This isn’t the beforehand time owners in Europe have reported the diesel fix affects performance. Reports of complaints from been pouring in with some owners saying the fix ruined their cars.
