The German carmaker Volkswagen is facing investigations and fines for a computer software problem in millions of its vehicles. The head of the Volkswagen Group, Martin Winterkorn, resigned over the issue. Earlier, the United States said Volkswagen secretly loaded eight popular models of vehicles with the software. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the software could recognize when emissions tests were being performed. The software turned on pollution controls during the tests, but disabled the controls when the car was bring driven. In a statement, the EPA said that 482,000 diesel-fueled passenger cars sold in the United States since 2008 were affected. Volkswagen had advertised the cars as being better for the environment. The Justice Department announced it plans a criminal investigation of the case. Volkswagen says 11 million vehicles worldwide had the software. After the company admitted to cheating on U.S. emissions tests, a French official called for a European investigation into vehicle emissions. South Korea also said it will investigate Volkswagen’s actions. Volkswagen said that it is putting aside about $7.3 billion to pay for changing the software and other costs. The company said in hopes to win “back the trust of our customers.” The Volkswagen Group is based in Wolfsburg, Germany. They produce a number of car brands, including Audi and Porsche. Volkswagen is the world’s biggest carmaker.
