They were responding after the Dutch road authority (RDW) found that the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Suzuki Vitara models produced unacceptably high levels of toxic emissions during road tests.
The RDW said that there are approximately 27,000 Jeeps and 42,000 Suzukis on European roads.
The authority said in a statement that its tests of more than a dozen carmakers in the wake of the Volkswagen emissions scandal had singled out Jeep and Suzuki. Other manufacturers were not found to have violated regulations.________________________
The Dutch agency has been investigating what it called “impermissible defeat devices” for the past year, following the disclosure in the United States in 2015 that Volkswagen had used software to alter its emissions during testing.
