    A shocking exposé of Volkswagen's fraud by the New York Times reporter who covered the scandal. In mid-2015 Volkswagen proudly reached its goal of surpassing Toyota as the world's largest automaker.

By early 2017 VW had settled with American regulators and car owners for $20 billion, with additional lawsuits still looming.
